Bonsoir a tous,

I'm trying to translate a phrase from English into French:

Would a comparison of these two men be flattering to either party?

My attempt:

Une comparaison entre ces deux hommes, serait-elle flatteuse soit a l'un soit a l'autre?

Merci d'avance

    Replacing both à by pour (and dropping the comma) would make your attempt correct, but a shorter sentence is possible:
    Comparer ces deux hommes serait-il flatteur pour l'un ou l'autre ?
