hello

can someone help me with the following translation please:

"ce résumé vous permettra d'apprécier notre situation et nos difficultées."

==> this summary should allow you to appreciate our situation and difficulties

it does not sound right to me.

Thanks a lot!

    well appreciate works in that context in English--we can appreciate adversity much as we can appreciate triumph...

    however, if you are looking for an alternative may I suggest:

    this summary should allow you to grasp our situation and difficulties
    this summary should allow you to understand/comprehend our situation and difficulties

    if you want to get "fancy" I suppose you could say
    internalize
    conceptualize

    a simple realize or fully realize could suffice as well....
