Julien Scavini, a French bespoke tailor, spent a weekend in London after an absence of many years. He wrote about his impressions of Savile Row and Jermyn Street today.

In French. Google Translate isn't great, but the post is mainly photographs and the language is less technical than that of some of his posts.

The title, L’écho de Londres, can be translated as something like "News from London", or maybe "London Report".

Bing translator is quite good really, but you cannot expect to read it without some work involved.

It seems comparable to Google Translate, and GT allows users to submit better translations.

It doesn't hurt to crack out the French dictionary. I like the practise, even if it takes longer to read the article (I'm masochistic like that).

Each phenomenon which is taken up should be treated with as much thoroughness as possible at that standpoint... One thing at a time and that done well!

My assumption is that not everyone on the forum reads French, or has the time to look up vocabulary.

Wordreference.com is an excellent, free online dictionary. I can't remember the name of the free online dictionary whose definitions are in French. It gives usage examples, like the OED (Oxford English Dictionary).
