Hello Everyone!

I hope you're doing well.

I'm seeking translation suggestions for the last sentence of the following (I couldn't fit the entire sentence into the field above):

Comme un combat partagé entre ses rédacteurs et ses lecteurs, chacun y trouve sa place : l’information étant le plus souvent illustrée par des témoignages des personnes vivant avec le VIH ou leurs proches. La vie des lecteurs trouvant de l’écho jusqu’à la recherche d’un autre dans les célèbres petites annonces.

I thought perhaps: From beginning to end, the publication accurately reflects the lives of its readership.

What do you think? Do you think that for the sake of accuracy I should include a word-for-word translation of les célèbres petites annonces? My thought is that it was meant figuratively, but I could be wrong!

Thank you for your suggestions.

agree  Richard Benham: I don't know why you can't call it the "famous personals section".
