Living in France, come from England. English is native language.
Hello,

I need help with the term 'se concevoir'. The original sentence is

"Les études transatlantiques se conçoivent forcément comme étant interdisciplinaires…"

And my attempt is:

"Transatlantic studies are by definition interdisciplinary"

Do you think this is ok? Any improvements...?

Many thanks

    That sounds fine :thumbsup:
    'se concevoir' is only a rhetorical synonym for 'be'.
    You could use the phrase 'the... are nothing but...' or 'aren't but...' to insist on the 'forcément'.
