    You could try using Google Translate? Would that be any help?

    Ces choses sont la merde

    Send it in English but type slowly, they'll understand it then.

    babelfish is pretty good for translating simple stuff - don't give it technical stuff though coz it gets a bit lost there!

    None of the online translators are very good for long translation..The meaning becomes lost as they translate literally.

    i have tried with online translation but the guy still doesnt understand - if you translate a sentence with online translation sites and then redo translate back you would suprised at the difference -

    It would help if you posted the actual text you want translating.

    google tranlator is very good - if you order something from a foreign website ( ie german ) they'll email you back and all the gumf at the bottom is in Deutsch .. cut n paste in google and it tells you what it all means

    google translate

    Sorry.... getting lost here. Yes, what you typed would be pretty clear.

    Off now, so if you do PM me, don't be expecting a speedy response.
