I'm writing an assignment in English, but I want the heading of the Table of Contents page to be in French.

I would also like to place a link at the bottom of each page saying "Return to the table of contents", but I would like that to be in French too.

What is the French translation for these English phrases?

What did you try ? How is not a dictionnary answering that ? (Table des matières, reverso gives it) –  Nikana Reklawyks Nov 19 '12 at 20:22

Table of Contents is “Table des matières” (notice the absence of a capital letter in matières, only the first letter of a title is made big in French). And “return to the table of contents” would be “retour à la table des matières” (retour is a noun, not a verb).
