Find ->
Normal search ->
Only [English] [where "English" is the language you translate to] ->

As ever with translation, there are questions to consider.
Chat is a standard word for chats in chatrooms, but there are some
French-speakers who would like to avoid adopting English words into
the language. If you are keen to avoid "franglais", use "Rechercher

Some French-speakers want to use the word "joueb" (= journal web)
instead of blog, but is that pure French?

I don't think there's a neat way of combining the ideas of being lucky

There's no French word for the wildcard asterisk. The English word is
used, and may be explained as the "caractère de remplacement"
(replacement character). I've put "remplacer" meaning replace, but you
could just leave it as "wildcard".

Please just ask if you want any further explanation!

I enjoyed experimenting with FindForward, and think it's a great idea

"back links" liens référents

"fils d'Actualités" newsfeeds 

franglais chat

chat bavardage

blog OR weblog joueb franglais
