French translation:traduction, ouvrage traduit, version, translation
Explanation:
Traduction: the most obvious translation of the word translation! The act of translating a text or the work, or the manner in which it is done.
Ouvrage traduit: if you are talking about the text that has been translated.
Version: used to talk about a translation from Latin (for example) to French.
Translation: transport or transfer; movement of a planet around the sun; motion or displacement of a body or geometric figure in a parallel fashion, i.e. without rotation.
Without context, it is difficult to know what term you are after. But in view of the fact that you are a translation agency, I am a bit surprised at your request...
Hope this helps anyway.
