Hi all,

I'm trying to express that....

an international language allows two parties to communicate using a language which is not native to either of them.

so far I've tried...

une langue internationale permet a deux (personnes?) de communiquer par une langue qui n'est pas leurs!

I know this is packed with mistakes! Any ideas?

Thanks

    Thanks pieanne,

    so..... permet a deux personnes de communiquer en utilisant une langue qui n'est pas la leur?

    Do you know of an alternative to "personnes" which could imply businesses, groups etc?

    Alternative :

    ...permet a deux X de communiquer dans une langue qui n'est pas leur langue maternelle.

    (we mean we French learn French from our mothers and that language is not innate) ;)
