Hello,

Me again!

Who will help me with this one ?

"Les valeurs en vigueur dans l'Athènes de Périclès étaient déjà en germe bien avant le siècle de ce grand homme d'Etat."

    Hello giulianooo, what exactly are you looking for?
    If you need a translation, would you like to make your own attempt first?

    You right Missrapunzel! My "own attempt" as you put it will maybe help-you-to-help-me! Right?!

    Here's the sentence again :
    "Les valeurs en vigueur dans l'Athènes de Périclès étaient déjà en germe bien avant le siècle de ce grand homme d'Etat."

    Would that be
    "The values ruling in Perikles' Athens already existed in sprouts long before the times of this great statesman" ?

    Voilà! Missrapunzel! Will you please put that in "proper" English (OK, I'll even settle for proper American! LOL)?

    Thanks in advance,

    E.
