I'm teaching Translation Theory and Practice to the university students. In order to support the application of theory to practice, we often craft a set of key ideas or process steps. One of such step is back translation. I want to provide my students some bilingual articles on any General topics which they will use in class to translate in either French or English. Later I will ask them to compare it with the translated text and see if their translation is better or worse.
Can you please give me some websites where I can find bilingual articles in French- English?

Hi Captain,

Maybe you could check out the website(s) of the Le Monde Diplomatique.

In English here:

French version:

You should (pay to) register, but you can do some reading for free too. If the author of an article has a French name in the English website, look for for the original text in the French website, and viceversa.

I think it is more common to have articles translated from French to English, but I am no 100% sure.

Try the website of the United Nations Apr 10, 2014

The English and French versions of the UN website contain many of the same articles.

two options Apr 10, 2014

It shouldn't be hard to find a Canadian newspaper that publishes its articles online in both languages.
Alternatively, you can pick a paragraph or two out of literary works at farkastranslations.com.
