for David, French

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. I have been unable to read your question because of "error, Gateway timed out" BUT since I know you are requesting a translation site to do long sentences correctly, let me post what I wrote yesterday for the same type of question in German. Just substitute the word "French" each time you see "German!"

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Trust us on this one! Translation sites are so stilted, incorrect and will NEVER get the nuances of a language! Besides that fact, you will NOT learn a language with a translation site!

Here is how to use a dictionary. Take the English word you want in German and "walk" it through ALL these steps with a good bilingual dictionary. 1. Look for all the German translations and write those down. 2. Take each German word and look that up for the primary, secondarly, terciary meaning in English. 3. Now select the best translation, depending upon the context, and post what you have done for someone competent in German to proofread it for you. You need to pay attention to the part of speech, word order, etc. There is NO SHORTCUT to good learning!
