Thanks for your replies.

    Here is the sentence i want to translate : "Nous avons décidé de faire gagner un écran plasma lors du tirage au sort".

    I'm thinking about : "We decided to ... a plasma screen for the sherry picking."

    Thanks for your replies

    How about: "We decided to give away a plasma screen tv..."

    (P.S. I'm not sure of the exact translation of "tirage au sort" but I've never heard the phrase "sherry picking" in American English). Perhaps: "... in a random drawing".

    ALors, comment dire, faire gagner, dans le contexte de faire gagner quelqu'un à un jeu, ou faire gagner une équipe dans les sports?
    Merci bien

    I would translate Tirage au sort by Lucky draw.

    Simbat14, for your question, I think there is no direct translation for "faire gagner" it must be translated in the sentence context.
