    Should 'Fair Trade' take capitals, Giraffe, as it is a recognized brand name?

    Thank you.

    Really? I wouldn't say so. But well, I don't know in English but in French it's not a brand name (as far as I know).

    Erm a difficult one, I don't think so, because it isn't a brand name, but it is a special mark given by one organisation... although in most cases people put it in lower case... up to you I think!

    Lower case letters would be used here. It refers to the fair trade agreement.

    Thanks to all!
     
  9. Hello,
    I'm racking my brains to find the right "buzzword" for a responsible tourism document. "Fair trade" doesn't seem to sit right at all on the following phrase in French (from a code of behaviour for the responsible traveller) :
    "Repérer les écolabels des produits alimentaires issus de l’agriculture biologique et du commerce équitable"

    My feeble initial attempt:
    "Look for ecologically-friendly bio-agricultural food productss and from fair trade"
    Would appreciate any input! Thanks

    You could possibly shorten it to

    Look out for eco-friendly organic and fair trade labels?
     
  11. Thanks Angela-S - I think that will do the trick!
