Translation.
I'd like to help in the LJ translation from English to French! I've played around with the translation tool, but anything that I entered I was unable to save, so I'm asking around here.

Is this the right place to be? Je parle et écris Francais relativement bon, et je veux aider si je peux.

Faites-moi savoir à qui pour parler ou si je suis dans l'endroit approprié!

If I'm not in the right place, does anyone know where I should go?

Merci beaucoup!

Vous êtes parfaitement dans l'endroit approprié! :-)

The reason why you couldn't save your translations is because you don't have the necessary privileges. Otherwise anybody could just come in and change things, no? :-) Currently only eclips1st and diafoirus have privs.

In response to this, I have written a tool which makes things a little easier. Using that tool, you can translate things (just follow the instructions on the main page) without actually saving the translations to the main server. You post a link to your translations into this community and then people can make corrections to it. Finally, eclips1st and diafoirus will look at it and commit it.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask! Tu peux aussi demander en français, si tu veux.

Merci beaucoup!

I successfully translated one full page and posted it on lj_francais for review!

Thanks for the tool - it really is a great help!

Thanks, I'll take you up on that offer should I need to; although English is my native language, I love French and I'm quite adept at picking it up!

Re: translation to english

It means "what are you doing?" but it could either mean "you" as in singular or "you" as in "you all" - in the plural form. If used singular, it is the formal method of speech.
