English and French have many words that look alike but whose meanings do not precisely overlap. Good translators learn to identify them and avoid the traps they lay. This presentation, however, seeks to go one step further by identifying structures that are fundamentally French and that can make your English translation sound odd if left unchanged. Using examples from actual jobs, we will identify how we can make the copy flow more naturally in English.
