This question already has an answer here:

"This is an exciting time to be part of the company. I'm really excited."

C'est un moment passionnant de faire partie de l'entreprise. ____

How should "I'm really excited" be translated? There was a question about the translation of "excited", but it deals with excitement about a specific thing. I think the suggestions there do not translate "excited" properly in this context, where no particular thing is specified.

  • Je suis vraiment content.

  • Je suis vraiment ravi.

  • Je suis vraiment impatient.

  • Je suis vraiment enchanté.

  • Je kiffe vraiment.

  • Je ne tiens vraiment plus.

I'm wondering if the best option would be

  • Je suis vraiment tout excité.

Also, is moment the correct translation of "time", or should we use temps?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


In this specific context,

« J'ai hâte ! = I can't wait! »

is the way to go.

It should be noted that the literal translation

« je suis vraiment tout excité = I'm really excited »,

as you put it, tends to have strong sexual connotations.

I remember answering a similar question a while ago:

How do I say in French 'I can't wait to see them!' ?


On pourrait dire « Je suis vraiment énervé. ».

    Doesn't énervé mean "annoying"? It's the opposite of what I want to say here. – user11550 Oct 29 '16 at 5:39
