    Hi...this is a really big favour to ask..... I live in the UK and back in 2009 whilst on holiday in Europe I bought a magazine called Quilt Mania Hors-Serle Enfants 2009.....because it had two beautiful childrens applique quilt in it that I would love to make.
    The only problem is,it is a french publication and therefore all the instructions are in french.
    I know a very small amount from being taught many years ago in school and I have tried with dictionaries etc but cannot translate it.
    Would anyone be kind enough to translate the instructions for me, the instructions are very short, just a couple of paragraphs really.......I would be more than happy to pay or send fabric if preferred as I know this is a big favour to ask...thank you

    I lived in France for 6 years and am fairly fluent... I also used to subscribe to Quiltmania so I've possibly got the edition you refer to. I'll gladly translate the instructions for you - and you're only up the road from me in 'Brizzle'! :mrgreen: :-D

    EDIT: Just been through all my magazines and although I have two Hors Series from 2009, I don't have (or can't find!) the children's one but if you can scan and email me the text, I can translate it no probs! :-D

    You also could put it in Google translator and that should work

    Basics work in Google translator. I speak french fluently and needed help with spelling. After entering words into google translation the results were total opposite of what I meant to say! Could have been most embarrassing! since you have someone that can translate, it's the safest and best route...

    It's very risque to use online translators (not just google)at the best of times. I sure wouldn't go there for something such as this!


    Little Roo and K3n ... great that you have connected and to think, both Brits! :)
