I am a gamer, programmer, and a wannabe linguist who is fluent in English and Mandarin, and proficient in French.

I am an achievement hunter. Come and visit me on trueachievements.com

I am also an administrator on Wiktionary and have been for over 3 years. I edit mostly in French, Dutch, English and Mandarin, but I also dabble in Italian, Japanese, Maori and Swedish. We are constantly looking for competent volunteers/lexicographers to contribute to this wonderful multilingual dictionary website.

comment Qu'est-ce que c'est, le piano bastringue?
Merci Istao. Votre réponse est très utile. Dans un tack piano, des clous sont attachés aux marteau produisant un son avec la percussion plus forte.

comment How to pronounce “voucher”
It's an English word borrowed from Anglo-French, which is itself derived from Old French voucher (to claim, to summon). It is now finding its way back into French.

comment Comment traduire « boilerplate » ?
J'suis d'accord. Il n'y a pas de terme qui correspond exactement. Peut-être 'standard de texte'?
