French to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Certificates, Diplomas, Licenses, CVs / marriage certificate
French term or phrase:CG
These two letters appear at the very end of the main section of a French marriage certificate. I'm not sure if it's an official's initials, the initials of someone's position, or something else.
@philgoddard, if I were a translation agency and one of my translators posted on a public website the name of a person in an official government document, I would never send that translator another job. It's not really relevant that the name may be of a public official. These documents have personal information in them, and are to be kept confidential. When I post regarding these documents, I keep this in mind.
There is just the trouble with my conseiller général theory that Paris does not have a conseil général. It has le Conseil de Paris, which is: "l'assemblée délibérante de Paris, possédant à la fois les attributions d'un conseil municipal (Paris en tant que commune) et celles d'un conseil départemental", according to https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conseil_de_Paris . Although the Conseil de Paris includes the functions of a conseil général in addition to being a conseil municipal, it would be odd, in an official document, to mention the name of an administrative entity that does not exist.
Haha, yes I know conseil général is irrelevant. I was just expressing the (sometimes) futility of the search for the meaning of initials/acronyms. I hadn't thought of searching on the name. I'll do that.
A conseil général has nothing to do with a wedding in France. Perhaps this adjoint au maire is also a conseiller général, but you have blacked out the name, so we can't check that online. The name of an adjoint au maire can't be confidential.
