French To English Translation

By following the instructions below you can translate blazons from French into English. The result is not 100% perfect but is a good basis for a final translation. In particular, the "style" of French is that used in Rietstap's General Armorial, so for example you can copy the blazons from into the box below and get a reasonable attempt at an English translation.

Type or paste a French blazon into the box below, then click here:
Your translation will appear below. Sometimes there are alternative choices that you can chose from a drop-down menu (if none of the options are right chose "(n/a)" ). You can overtype any of the other translations if they are wrong. As you click in each box the corresponding French word is highlighted in the box below. Unknown words are shown in orange, you will need to look these up in a French / English dictionary.

When you are happy with the translation, press this button: . You can still edit the translation below if you want before you copy it and paste it somewhere else.
When you have finished here, click here: to start over with a new blazon.

At the moment there are about 1,100 words and phrases in the translation dictionary. If you find additional words or phrases that you think should be included please let me know by clicking the button below.
