Hi

How would you translate this sentence in English:

Propos recueillis par Mr Dupont auprès de ...

Words collected from ... by Mr. Dupont ???

Thanks in advance for your help

    Hello wonderful and welcome to the forum,

    Normally English uses a different approach. Assuming that "..." is a person, we would say "... interviewed by Mr. Dupont".

    It's true that the English has a different feel (not as nice as the French), but we wouldn't really say "words collected" or "...gathered" or anything else.
