    Quand cela s'utilise dans une seule phrase, que veut dire "Dont acte." ? Il me semble qu'il y a un sujet qui manque, mais je l'ai lu quelque part. Il a ete la derniere phrase d'un paragraphe...

    Perhaps I should clarify - this was written in French. The writer was talking about various experiences and what they meant to her, and the last sentence was "Dont acte."

    "Dont acte" veut dire à peu près "nous prenons bonne note des arguments exposés ci-dessus, mais nous nous réservons le droit de les contester ultérieurement s'il y a lieu".

    Yes Miller it does exist absolutely, but sometimes with more context, it is easier for members to understand what you're after.

    This is the definition from the TLFi :

    need to bring this thread up again - i understand the meaning in French but can anyone give me a decent English equivalent? Am translating a police document where it is mentionned at the end of every page.

    The best I have come up with on my own is 'hereby noted'.Ppllellellleeeease,more and better suggestions!!!

    Duly noted or acknowledged.
     
  8. The closest English equivalent is "Duly noted"

    Selon mon dictionnaire : "on en prend (bonne) note".

    A less formal, often verbal equivalent would be "Note taken."
