C'est regrettable pour nous qui ne connaissons pas l'anglais.
Je suis membre de la communauté world pulse il y a déjà une année. je n'arrive pas encore a exploiter toutes les opportunités offertes dans notre site parce que tout est écrit en anglais.Lorsque je traduit le texte avec google,je constate une modification du sens du texte.
J'aurai souhaite poster un besoin:appel de font pour mon organisation NGABO.mais je doute fort de la qualité du message que je peux donner aux autres car ce sera de l'anglais traduit avec google.
je vous demanderais de bien vouloir comprendre et m'aider dans la correction de mon texte avec tolérance.


Je peux vous aider cette-fois ci mas il faut prévoir d´autres aides pour diffuser ces appels en Français, dans le futur.
Oui, car il y e an beaucoup, mais la majorité est en Anglais.
Merci de bien vouloir m´envoyer votre "draft" (prémiere version du texte) par e-mail
Je serai partante pour traduire de mon mieux pour le Français, la notice que j´ai affiché ci-dessous.

Merci aussi de visiter

Nous avons la meme

Nous avons la meme preoccupation que Brigitte, les appels en anglais nous decouragent sensiblement. Alors nous demandons quel sera le sort de francophone dans ces histoires de financements, alors que nous ne pouvons pas grand chose sans moyen.
