Hey all!

I'm reading alot of material on how to start, get going etc... i would be very grateful if someone posted some actual sample texts (french and english buissnes texts) that i would then try to translate into my language.

Or if someone could point me out the sites or books that offer these sample texts and some context to get me started...

Best regards;

Anything goes Dec 17, 2008

If I understand your question correctly, you are looking for the sort of material that might come in as an assignment one day, once you got started.
Basically, it is a matter of finding out what you are good at and where your personal interests and preferences are. If you prefer something technical, look for instruction manuals on manufacturers' websites. If law is your cup of tea, check out sample contracts, or if you are looking for the more creative stuff, try your luck e.g. with some tourism or marketing websites .

Good luck!

thanks Wolfgang; this is pretty much the case. to get started in one somehow more specific domain. doing this on random i figured the general buissnes texts should be appropiate... maybe i'm wrong; the time will tell.

These organizations often have various sample documents relevant to business. Why not just browse those sites for something interesting? I did a quick Google search with "chamber of commerce" and various cities, and I see lots of potential material. I assume you know the corresponding term in French. Or go look on Wikipedia.
