A Historic Decision to Strengthen Ties between France and California

It’s official! Silicon Valley has decided to make French its official language, due to the growing influence of French Tech and the increasing presence of French startups in the region. California Governor Gavin Newsom announced this historic decision at a press conference yesterday morning.

“We are thrilled to welcome the French language to Silicon Valley,” said the governor. “This decision aims to strengthen economic and cultural ties between France and California, and to encourage exchanges between French and American companies. We are confident that this initiative will create new opportunities for businesses and workers in the region.”

Silicon Valley companies will now have to display their names and slogans in French, which might lead to hilarious translations and unlikely puns. Google might become “Le Grand Œil”, Facebook will be renamed “Le Livre de Visages”, and Tesla will be known as “La Voiture Électrique”.

Silicon Valley employees will have to take intensive French courses to communicate with their French-speaking colleagues and customers.

Cafes and restaurants in Silicon Valley will offer menus exclusively in French, with typical dishes such as snails and coq au vin. Silicon Valley meetings and conferences will now be conducted in French, which will lead to misunderstandings and amusing quid pro quos. French startups in Silicon Valley will be allowed to wear berets and striped shirts, to proudly display their French identity.



Of course, this is an April Fool’s joke, and Silicon Valley will continue to use English as its official language. But who knows, maybe one day French will become the most spoken language in tech!

Happy April Fool’s Day to all MerciSF.com readers!
