Face endroit/face envers

< Previous | Next >



Pourriez-vous m'aider pour traduire :

"Nature et pourcentage des matières, face endroit et face envers."
(on parle de textile)

Proposition :
Nature and percentage of the materials, right side up and upside down
Je ne suis pas sûr du tout!

    endroit = face or right side

    envers = back or wrong side

    Le garçon portait son veston à l'envers
    = The boy had his jacket on wrong side out.

    Pour l'expression en question --
    Nature and percentage of the materials, for the face and the back.

    When working with fabrics, right side and wrong side are the usual terms.

    However, when describing a manufactured item, the terms front and back might be better, unless this is a garment in which case they are ambiguous.

    All in all: right side and wrong side.
