Two simple sentences. Oct 8, 2016

Yes, French picks the possessive gender of the following noun/object, while English refers to the sentence subject gender when picking the possessive pronoun.

But this is definitely not a critical error, because it is clear what happened in both sentences. Google can definitely make more serious errors than that one leaving you in doubt what messages/events/situations were supposed to be rendered.

What do you have here in both sentences? Just simple phrasing and SVO structure. Google can handle that.
