    hello everybody,

    I'm in doubt with the two options above. Which one is correct? I believe the second one: Recurring TO the allies to finish the job....
    What do you think?
    many thanks

    here is the text:

    Recurring TO the allies to “finish the job” and kill al Qaeda troops entrenched was not as successful as expected.

    Please provide the source of your sentence.

    Hello,

    The source is an article I have translated from French. So in fact it is me who wrote the English sentence above. But the segment of text I have a doubt about has been suggested by a native friend. It's just that I find it weird...

    Thank you

    Chloe, I'm afraid the sentence does not make a lot of sense. We don't proofread in this forum, so we can't really help you much. The preposition is not as much of a problem as "recurring" - which does not seem to be the right word. You also have a problem with word order. I suggest that you post on the French-English Vocabulary forum to check what English word you should be using.

    I will close this thread. You may start another later if you still have a question after you have the translation sorted out.
