Looking for a French person (12)

1 Name: Aver : 2010-11-07 05:37 ID:4u2i6dQ0

Part of the NaNoWriMo-story I'm writing this year - it's not fanfiction, so everyone can read it - takes place in France, and of course, a lot of French is spoken there.
Of course, I want the French in that part of the story to be pretty good, so I'm going to need a Beta to correct the French parts in said story, and that's where you come in. If you've got French as your mother tongue and speak English reasonably well - it doesn't have to be your mother language(it's not mine either :) ), then I'd like you to be the Beta for those parts of the story. I need you to speak English well because I, of course, need to be able to communicate well with you. Also, next to the French sentences, I'll put the English translation so that if I've made a really vague sentence in French, you'll still be able to know what I mean and thus, correct it.
Then again, if you didn't speak English, you probably couldn't have read this... ah well.
You don't have to translate things, though. I've learnt French for about seven years now, and I speak it reasonably well. I still make a lot of mistakes in the writing, though, so I want you to correct those. And, if you see things that are correct, but you feel someone French wouldn't say that, tell me as well.
In exchange for your Beta-ing, I'm willing to review any of your own, English, stories you want(and if you need anyone to correct Dutch sentences, I'm happy to help). And, of course, I'll thank you with your FP or FF-account name in the story.

If you're interested, please respond!

Props for going for authenticity, although it's going to be a bit difficult, as the vast majority of the FF population is North American.

Yeah, I know =) I've already posted something in the thread for French people if any of them wants to help me, there isn't much more I can do. I'm sure there are a few French ones out there willing to help, I don't doubt it =P It just takes a while to find them.

One of he things about NaNoWriMo is that the novels are eqivilent to rough draft. If you aren't able to get someone to help this month, you can always find someone later. I actually have French/Japanese/English in one of my projects. I choose to change the font for it, so it would run smoother.

I just went onto Fanfiction.net, picked a TV show (CSI:Miami), selected story language as French, and clicked GO - it came up with a couple of French writers. You could try the same and approach them, maybe.

Will any french person do? And what will you do with them when you have one..? Racist.

>>8 Uh did you even read what she wants to talk to a French person for? Obviously not. Moron.

>>8 - I agree with >>9, you really should have read the post...

Plus, this thread was forgotten for like nearly a month, doofbrain, until you decided to bring it back with your ignorant post, so who cares anymore?!
