Hi Steve

Thanks for your efforts, I know you've attempted to correct some of the  
grammar, spelling and phrasing, but I am sorry to say that the quality of  
the translation is bad to the point that sentences do not make sense. I  
believe French is not your mother tongue (it is mine) and unless you can  
have the document rewritten so as to make sense, I will not be able to  
have it included in the database.

Best regards,
Coralie
