comment Reasons for difference in translation of Pirates of the Caribbean from Quebec to France?
One thing that apparently this law wasn't able to control is car related words: "les brakes, la clutch, le hood, le steering" which afaik are not common outside Québec

I also think things changed in France. If "Star Wars" (1977) had been released today, I'm almost certain it would have kept its original English name.

@Chop mais que dire du rôle de 'pas' dans la phrase "l'instructeur forme le maître, mais pas le chien" dans ce cas?

comment Words permutation with 'de' removal
@YohannV. Yes, that's the base rule but sometimes adjective/noun is used in French too: 'il a une jolie maison' for instance

comment Words permutation with 'de' removal
@Random, In this case there is no adjective. And actually sometimes, that kind of inversion happens in French too ('une jolie maison' but 'un chat noir').

comment I am looking for an expression similar to “J'ai l'honneur” ?
The context is still not crystal clear but do you really need to use such a construct in your sentence. "J'ai eu l'occasion de constater un problème au niveau..." could work too and sounds 'lighter' to me.

Can you provide us with the sentences in which you use it, it's a bit hard to give you an equivalent without any context.
