    Default How’s your French.

    My French vocabulary is about trois words long, not such a problem for my day to day living arrangements.

    But then i found this book,an just from the two pages i can see,it looks wonderful,but the price for what is basically a picture book for me,bugger.
    A very long shot any one know of a English translation.

    Book: LE LIVRE DE L'OUTIL by Andre Velter & Marie Jose Lamothe - 90965 – Jim Bode Tools

    Merci Matt.

    About 2 years ago, I translated documents for university PhD researchers. They were French medical texts on tuberculosis in Algeria.

    Yeah, pretty esoteric.

    I did 98% no problem, but local wording or a new word caught me out... I used my mobile phone!

    With the Google Translate ap, using the camera, I could hover over the nasty bits and it would change the text for me real time.

    Nice!

    Matt, why are you looking at Jim Bode's site . . . did you win a lottery?

    Bonjour Matt,
    Désolé, je n'ai pas trouvé de copie en ligne.
    À votre santé

    PS: Blame google translate - not me.

    I wasn't going to mention it, but I had a look around after Simplicity posted.

    There are copies going rather inexpensively (AUD72): LE LIVRE DE L'OUTIL by VELTER André/LAMOTHE Marie-José/Marquis Jean(Photos):: Bon Couverture souple (1963) | Bibliofolie

    Also they are on Amazon (USA).
