Hi, Mike, I decided to start this thread as a lot of us in the French-English forum get very annoyed at people asking for translations of single words or phrases without providing context of any kind, which makes it nearly impossible to provide an appropriate answer - other than by chance! So how could we entice new members to provide context when they ask their question? Could there be a note visible by all forum users whenever they start a new thread, a few inescapable lines saying something like: Please help us to help you by providing context to your query. The easiest way to do so is to quote the sentence that contains the word/phrase you're requiring help about. If this is impossible, try and briefly explain where you encountered it. Thanks! ?
