    Bonjour,

    Pouvez-vous me dire comment traduire en anglais :

    L'équipe de la société PFL vous souhaite une bonne année 2006

    La société PFL et l'ensemble de ses collaborateurs vous souhaitent une
    bonne année 2006

    La société PFL et son équipe vous souhaitent une bonne année 2006.

    Merci de votre aide

    Bonjour,
    vous souhaite une bonne année = wish you a (good) happy (new) year 2006 ... me semble correct

    I think it is a little strange in the US to hear: The ... Company. For example: The Xerox company, don't you think? Also, what is PFL? I'm losing my touch after living in France for a year! :)

    The team at PFL wishes you a Happy New Year!

    PFL and all their colleagues wish you a Happy New Year!

    PFL and team wish you a Happy New Year!

    You're right Denis, your versions sound much better.

    Perhaps:
    PFL and their team wish you a Happy New Year!

    Thanks Beth :)

    Maybe spell out whatever it is that PFL stands for? I'm not sure about the year on the end, however. I think typically I hear: Happy New Year and best wishes for 2006! But, it's good to be original too.
