Re: Help with translation please.....

Whether anyone bothers about it nowadays I don't know, but what I learnt years ago Coops is :

 

Veuillez trouver ci-joint photocopies

 

but when there is la, les, une, etc. in front, it should be

veuillez trouver ci-jointe la photocopie

veuillez trouver ci-jointe une photocopie

veuillez trouver ci-jointes deux photocopies, etc.

Eric, I see you are being your usual sycophantic self when writing to the "authorities"

There are rules and turn of phrases to use when communicating with the administration....

Well, yes.... don't get me wrong, I don't mind a bit of forelock-tugging if it gets me what I want.

Anything for a quiet life and there's no point hitting your head against a brick wall, n'est-ce pas?

And I so appreciated your help at the time, Eric, and now the maire and I are practically on 3-kisses terms.
