Hello!

Marseille was founded in 600 BC by Greeks from Phocaea.

Could anyone please help me translate this into french??

This is my try:
Marseille a été fondé dans 600 BC par les Grecs de Phocaea.

Merci bien x

    HI Shr3kky

    Your translation is not too bad but hasn't the exact same meaning
    This one is better
    "Marseille a ete fondee en 600 avant JC par des grecs provenant de Phocaea"
    Sorry for the accents I have an american keyboard
    bye

    Hello,

    "Marseille a été fondée en 600 avant JC par les phocéens" would be ok, unless you really want to explain that Phokaea (in French Phocée) was a greek town in medium asia - at the origin a greek trading post.
