Hello,
I need to translate "leur terres leur ont été confisquées". The context: The Indians were evicted from their land. they were seized???
Thank you

    Thank you Annie for such a quick answer. Sorry for the singular turned to plural with no reason.

    Why not "confiscated"? The implication, presumably, was that they were seized under some sort of legal authority, however inadequate that may now seem?
