French anyone?

Postby Po. Prune » Sun Jun 26, 2016 3:18 pm

Does anyone in this forum write French?
I need to have a "note" written in French for my next game.
Please?

You could try Google Translate.

It works a little better if you keep the sentences simple. When you get into complex sentences, Google Translate gets lost. Also, try using synonyms and get multiple translations. That will help weed out the problems where translate is using a different definition of a word. I use it quite a bit translating to Spanish and have good luck, I just have to remember to keep it simple.
