English translation of million

million

The French word 'million' is used exactly the same way as in English-speaking countries. It is used to quantify or express the numeric value which is often paired with nouns to express an amount. It is important to note that you should use 'de' after million in French if you are speaking about a specific noun, e.g. 'Un million de personnes' translates to 'A million people'. However, if referring to 'one million' in general, 'Un million' would be appropriate.
