    What I want to say is:
    The hole in the ozone layer has been shrinking.

    My translation is:
    Le trou dans la couche d'ozone réduisait.

    Am I right to use the word "réduisait"? Is there a better word?

    Algeria (Arabic - French)
    Se rétrécir would be more appropriate.

    Le trou dans la couche d'ozone s'est rétréci.
