    Hello, atomjames, and thank you for your report :)

    This translation can't be added because this sense doesn't exist on the English side.
    I'll ask them whether it should be added @DrD

    Hi! Are you saying "implacable" isn't used in this sense?
    The second definition in the OED is "relentless; unstoppable."
    I lifted this translation from an Arthur Goldhammer translation of Camus, for what it's worth.

    Hi, atomjames!

    Oh, sorry, I misunderstood. As you had reported in the English>French dictionary, I thought you wanted me to add "implacable" in French as a translation of "inexpiable".
    You suggest "inexpiable" = "implacable" should be added in what we call the frbase, that is, to have it appear in the French>English dictionary, right?

    Ah ah, ok, no problem! :)
    It is indeed quite difficult to report missing terms, so I understand why your report ended in the wrong direction.
    I'll let the frbase know! Thank you! :)
