French Update: New French Website Launched!

Our new French website is now online! And the first comments we have received are very positive. This is the third version of and it uses a similar design to the new English-language website, In addition to the new design, the new French website is optimized for “organic” search. A new content section, News and Prophecy (Nouvelles et Prophéties), is also featured, as well as an optional display in large font for our visually-impaired visitors. The launching of this 2011 version is also accompanied by new Facebook and Twitter pages. The use of these social networks will help us improve the positioning of our website (on popular search engines) and reach more people.

With this 2011 version, the online Bible Study Course is now hosted on a separate site,, which also benefits from a new design and is more user-friendly. Through the pages of the Bible Study Course, we are also able to offer various online Bible translations in French that are copyright free (Louis Segond, Darby, Ostervald and Martin).

More developments to our websites are planned for the next few months, such as newsletters, RSS and podcast feeds.—VG Lardé
