|French to English translations [PRO]|
|French term or phrase: Les paroles s'envolent, les écrits restent|
|Cette phrase me hante. Je travaille pour des partenaires de "confiance", les relations se font souvent par téléphone, je commence donc à traduire avant de recevoir le PO, j'aimerais donc mettre cette expression dans ma signature... I am under a tight deadline for a s....y price and would like this motto translated.|
Thanks to my peers.
P.S: Ceci est juste une explication, pas besoin de traduire, sauf le slogan ;)
