French to English translation services
It makes no sense to spend time and money on an internet site and not to make sure that your English section makes sense. All too often the English sections of French producers’ sites use laughably poor English. It always best to get a native English speaker to translate for you or, at least, get your English version checked over. I offer a translation service, so please contact me on
