French term or phrase: Centre de Préparation Omnisport
Throughout a document the "Centre de Préparation Omnisport" is constantly mentioned. Would this be considered a nom propre or should I translate it.
If I should translate it, would Omnisports training center be acceptable in English or would General sports trainingcenter be preferable ?
Thanks for any advice.

English translation:Omnisport Training Center
Explanation:
would be my suggestion, given the capitalization, which implies that the phrase is a proper name. (Does the rest of your document give you any clues?) -- Alternatively, you could leave it in French and add the English translation as an explanation (in such cases, I usually put the English in brackets immediately after the French). -- HTH, HC
