Rack your Brains and Help/ 18
Message de here4u posté le 12-03-2018 à 23:28:29 (S | E | F)
Hello, dear Friends,

Here is your new brain-teaser... I hope you'll find it less difficult than the preceding one, which apparently has cost you a lot of time and energy... Most of you have told me that they had learnt a lot and feel they can do more, still!
I think it is less difficult than N°17, but it's a little longer and more varied as there's a new form of training.
Please, remember that I'm delighted if/ when you give me the whole work, and I'm thrilled to have more and new Learners working with us, but I'd really like you to feel free to leave out what you don't fancy doing.

I hope you'll have fun with this new exercise, a as ever; it will be corrected online on Wednesday, March the 28th. Of course, here's the FORCE to support and help you!

I) Please, help my student! He really needs you! He was asked a question for an assignment, but has left « a few mistakes »... Can you correct them for him, please? a lot for you help.
Finding the necessary ponctuation is the first step to success...

the customer services are most that to wait for custumer it include to try the better to doing sure witch the custumers is satisfying i know custumers’s satisfaction is extrêmelly important to a compagnie for exemple I recently have a custumer than was deceive than we did not have an item in the store i cold for others branches of the compagnie and finaly called compagnie head quarter to found a item i than had been shiping it to our branche and the custumer had an item with for days to worked hard to meat customer need is never a priority

II) Can you, please, reorder the words so as to make meaningful sentences… All the words must be used, none should be added!

Modifications! 1. RECEPTIONISTS/ SERVICE/ CAN/ CONSUMER/ TEAM/ VIRTUAL/ EXPERIENCED/ LIGHTEN/ COME/ CALLS/ LOAD/ OF/ BY/ TO/ YOU/ YOUR/ YOUR/ OUR/ HAVING/ = 19 - Start with :"You...

2. EACH/ EACH/ AN/ TO/ OF/ ITS/ IN/ THEY/ HOW/ AND/ AND/ WORK/ HAVE/ DON’T/ FIX/ USES/ KNOW/ INTIMATE/ STONEMASONS/ KNOWLEDGE/ TYPE/ PLACE/ STONE/ STONE/ ?/ = 24 - Start with : "Stonemasons... (and be cunning!= not as "obvious" as it seems...)

III) ANOTHER TORTURE?
Vous dites que ces exercices sont très difficiles, mais que c’est ce que vous aimez … et je vois les « trouvailles » que vous faites … Maxwell, qui est un bourreau pire que moi, m’a suggéré un autre genre d’exercice … Un peu perplexe, je compte sur vos découvertes pour pouvoir faire un « corrigé » … qui sera, comme toujours appuyé sur vos efforts !
Maxwell : "A partir de l'expression française suivante : "Donner un air de fête à ", trouver au moins 3 traductions différentes possibles que vous utiliserez chacune dans une phrase qui explicitera le contexte dans lequel on peut l'utiliser, l'éventuel registre de langue associé, et les nuances de sens. Ces 3 expressions anglaises ne devront (si possible) pas être interchangeables, et chacune devra apporter quelque chose de différent.

Thanks a lot, Maxwell … I hope your friends will still love you after this exercise...

Hello my dear Here4u, and Maxwell ! Thanks a lot to you both, I DO love these terrific and really great exercises !
Hi Everybody!

I) Please, help my student! He really needs you! He was asked a question for an assignment, but has left « a few mistakes »... Can you correct them for him, please? a lot for you help.
Finding the necessary ponctuation is the first step to success...

the customer services are most that to wait for custumer it include to try the better to doing sure witch the custumers is satisfying i know custumers’s satisfaction is extrêmelly important to a compagnie for exemple I recently have a custumer than was deceive than we did not have an item in the store i cold for others branches of the compagnie and finaly called compagnie head quarter to found a item i than had been shiping it to our branche and the custumer had an item with for days to worked hard to meat customer need is never a priority

Here is my little help:
CUSTOMER SERVICE IS MORE THAN WAITING for CUSTOMER. IT INCLUDES to try the BEST to BE sure WHOM CUSTOMER is SATISFIED. I know CUSTOMER’s satisfaction is EXTREMELY important FOR a COMPANY. FOR EXAMPLE I recently have a CUSTOMER WHO was DISAPPOINTED THAT we did not have an item in the store. I CALLED for OTHER branches of the COMPANY, and FINALLY called COMPANY'S HEADQUARTERS to FIND AN item. I THEN had been SHIPPING it to our branche, and the CUSTOMER had an item with FOUR days to work. HARD to MEET NEEDED CUSTOMER is never a priority.


II) Can you, please, reorder the words so as to make meaningful sentences… All the words must be used, none should be added!
Première phrase :
RECEPTIONISTS/ SERVICE/ CAN/ CONSUMER/ TEAM/ VIRTUAL/ EXPERIENCED/ LIGHTEN/ COME/ CALLS/ LOAD/ OF/ BY/ TO/ YOU/ YOUR/ YOUR/ OUR/ HAVING/ = 19 - Start with :"You...
You can lighten your experimented receptionists team having by load your virtual calls to come of our consumer service.
Vous pouvez éclairer votre équipe de réceptionnistes expérimentés ayant en charge les appels virtuels à venir de notre service consommateurs.

Deux heures de plus, pas de muscle dans le cerveau, chère Lucile, mais la cocotte minute a failli exploser ! ...

deuxième phrase :
EACH/ EACH/ AN/ TO/ OF/ ITS/ IN/ THEY/ HOW/ AND/ AND/ WORK/ HAVE/ DON’T/ FIX/ USES/ KNOW/ INTIMATE/ STONEMASONS/ KNOWLEDGE/ TYPE/ PLACE/ STONE/ STONE/ ?/ = 24
Stonemasons have an intimate knowledge and know uses how to fix each stone in its place and don't they work each type of stone ?
Les tailleurs de pierres possèdent une connaissance intime et connaissent les usages pour fixer chaque pierre à sa place et ne travaillent-ils pas chaque type de pierre ?

III) ANOTHER TORTURE?
Vous dites que ces exercices sont très difficiles, mais que c’est ce que vous aimez … et je vois les « trouvailles » que vous faites … Maxwell, qui est un bourreau pire que moi, m’a suggéré un autre genre d’exercice … Un peu perplexe, je compte sur vos découvertes pour pouvoir faire un « corrigé » … qui sera, comme toujours appuyé sur vos efforts !

Ces 3 expressions anglaises ne devront (si possible) pas être interchangeables, et chacune devra apporter quelque chose de différent.
Thanks a lot, Maxwell … I hope your friends will still love you after this exercise...

My answers are:
1) Mary lay the table that Sunday: it MAKES IT SO FESTIVE; by adding a bunch of flowers, it MAKES IT VERY FESTIVE.
Marie dresse la table ce dimanche : elle (la table) a un air de fête ; en ajoutant un bouquet de fleurs, cela donne un air de fête.

2) The whole country is IN A HOLIDAY MOOD : it's the National day, and people will dance all night long after fireworks.
Le pays tout entier a un air de fête : c'est la Fête Nationale, et les habitants danseront toute la nuit après les feux d'artifices.

3) That night, in Saint-Tropez, had its OWN CELEBRATORY ATMOSPHERE, when Summer comes and when Eddy Barclay invited all his friends in a stylish villa.
Cette nuit, à Saint-Tropez, avait son air de fête, quand l'été arrivait et qu'Eddy Barclay invitait tous ses amis dans une villa de style.

Friendly yours..., even after these really difficult exercises !
... A lot of work since your posting !!! "If at first you don't succeed, try again !"
Have a great Thursday and a very sweet week!

Hello!

Choco... but I was just kidding! (Testing the "reordering would penalize the volunteer, and/or the other posters...) I'll manage, and will ask for help, if necessary...

Yes, Lucile! Let's not forget our brains! I'm used to telling Students that "if you don't use it, you lose it!"


and

(In front of their giggling, for a few years, I've had to add that I was speaking about our BRAINS

CUSTOMER SERVICE IS MORE THAN WAITING for CUSTOMERS. IT INCLUDES TRYING TO DO the BEST to BE sure THE CUSTOMERS ARE SATISFIED. I know, CUSTOMERS’ satisfaction is EXTREMELY important FOR a COMPANY.

hello everyone

here is my try

Please, help my student! He really needs you!

the customer services are most that to wait for custumer it include to try the better to doing sure witch the custumers is satisfying i know custumers’s satisfaction is extrêmelly important to a compagnie for exemple I recently have a custumer than was deceive than we did not have an item in the store i cold for others branches of the compagnie and finaly called compagnie head quarter to found a item i than had been shiping it to our branche and the custumer had an item with for days to worked hard to meat customer need is never a priority


The customer services are most WAITED for customers, it includeS to DO the BEST to BE SURE THE CUSTOMERS ARE SATISFIED . I know customers' satisfaction is EXTREMELY important FOR a COMPANY , for example, I recently HAD a customer WHO WAS DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE we did not have an item in the store, I CALLED for others branches of the COMPANY and FINALLY ASKED the company HEADQUARTERS to FIND an item WHICH HAS BEEN shipping to our branch ; and the customer HAS RECEIVED the item UNDER SOME days. WORKING hard to MEET customer need is EVER a priority !

Les services à la clientèle sont les plus attendus des clients, il comprend de faire de son mieux pour s'assurer que les clients sont satisfaits. Je sais que la satisfaction des clients est extrêmement importante pour une entreprise, par exemple j'ai eu récemment un client qui a été déçu que nous n'ayons pas un article dans le magasin, j'ai appelé d'autres filiales de la compagnie et finalement j'ai joint le siège social pour trouver l'article qui a été expédié à notre succursale et le client reçut l'article sous quelques jours. Travailler dur pour répondre aux besoins des clients est toujours une priorité.

II) Can you, please, reorder the words so as to make meaningful sentences

Stonemasons have an intimate knowledge of each type of stone , and they know to work its uses and how to fix in each place. 24

Les tailleurs de pierre ont une connaissance intime de chaque type de pierre, et ils savent travailler ses usages et comment les poser dans chaque endroit. 24

III) ANOTHER TORTURE?

1 To celebrate my next birthday, I would like to give a festive air by decorating the room where the party will take place, like an enchanted garden, with many plants, beautiful flowers and a lot of music of course.

2 In December, nothing more like a christmas tree in front of the house to give you a festive christmas spirit.

3 For the traditional popular festival at Brantôme in Périgord, the entire city is in a holiday mood, a lot of ribbons have been hang on the street lights, everywhere, many flowers decorate the shops and stands, it makes it very festive.

4 We can bring a new festive look at the kitchen unit, just changing the buttons of the doors, or customizing the ceramic with new stickers.


Thank you both here4u and Maxwell for your infinite imagination to make our brains work harder and harder....

1 – The merry pealing of bells was GIVING RISE OF A FESTIVE AIR to people,
who was crowding into the small medieval church to celebrate
the Easter.

2 – White sails of tacking boats catching the scarce wind,
far out on the sea, made me feel that THE GENTLE BLOWING BREEZE
was part of the JOYFUL SENSATION DONATED TO me by
the advent of springtime.

3 - Swarms of screeching swallows,
in wild carousels, are hunting their preys,
filling my soul OF GOOD MOOD,
something the nature IS GIFTING TO me,
in the vanishing light of a summer sundown.

Thanking for your nice exercise, I remain,
hoping you have a pleasant day.

So long

L'exercice est intéressant en lui-même mais le choix de l'expression ne s'y prêtait pas : J'ai eu l'impression de couper les cheveux en 4 en essayant de catégoriser et je n'ai pas réussi... J'ai d'autres idées pour les prochains exercices où les catégories seront plus claires...

Hello!

Voici votre correction. Cette fois encore, je recherche un/ des volontaire(s) pour traduire la correction du texte de mon élève et les deux phrases reconstituées.

Certains m'ont encore maudite pour ce qui est de l'exercice de "reordering". J'ai donc fait beaucoup plus facile et grammatical pour le nouveau ... Vous verrez, avec cette correction, qu'il n'y avait pas de réelles difficultés dans ces phrases ... Je vous accorde cependant qu'elles étaient très longues !
Mon élève a été beaucoup mieux compris (et corrigé) que les fois précédentes ! Comme quoi on s'habitue à tout !
Tout le monde a fait de bonnes phrases pour l'exercice de Maxwell. Bravo donc, pour vos recherches, vos efforts et vos trouvailles !

I) Please, help my student! He really needs you!
the customer services are most that to wait for custumer it include to try the better to doing sure witch the custumers is satisfying i know custumers’s satisfaction is extrêmelly important to a compagnie for exemple I recently have a custumer than was deceive than we did not have an item in the store i cold for others branches of the compagnie and finaly called compagnie head quarter to found a item i than had been shiping it to our branche and the custumer had an item with for days to worked hard to meat customer need is never a priority

Customer service is more than waiting on (1) customers. It includes trying your best(2) to make sure that the customer is satisfied. I know customer satisfaction is extremely important to (3) your company. For example, I recently had a customer who was disappointed that we did not have an item in our store. I called four other branches of our company and finally called company headquarters, to find the item. I then had it shipped to our branch(4), and the customer had the item within four days. Working hard to meet customers’ needs(5) is always a priority.

- to wait on a client = servir quelqu'un ... à ne pas mélanger, bien sûr avec "to wait for" qui signifie "attendre".
- to do your best= faire de votre mieux.
- it's important to him ... c'est important pour lui
- to be disappointed = être déçu. To be deceived = FAUX-AMI = qui signifie "tromper".
- a branch of a company = une succursale de notre entreprise.
- the Headquarters = le siège d'une compagnie
- to have something done = to have my hair cut / to have a room painted = faire faire quelque chose. Lien internet

- to meet customer's needs = satisfaire les besoins du consommateur.

II)Can you, please, reorder the words so as to make meaningful sentences… All the words must be used, none should be added!
1.RECEPTIONISTS/ SERVICE/ CAN/ CONSUMER/ TEAM/ VIRTUAL/ EXPERIENCED/ LIGHTEN/ COME/ CALLS/ LOAD/ OF/ BY/ TO/ YOU/ YOUR/ YOUR/ OUR/ HAVING/ = 19
You can lighten your consumer service load by having your calls come to our experienced team of virtual receptionists.

(Attention au "double sens de "to lighten") Lien internet


2.EACH/ EACH/ AN/ TO/ OF/ ITS/ IN/ THEY / HOW/ AND/ AND/ WORK/ HAVE / DON’T /FIX/ USES/ KNOW/ INTIMATE/ STONEMASONS/ KNOWLEDGE/ TYPE/ PLACE/ STONE/ STONE/ ?/ = 24
Stonemasons have an intimate knowledge of each stone type, its uses, and know how to work and fix each stone in place, don’t they ?

La petite difficulté consistait à se demander dans quelles circonstances une phrase se terminait par un point d'interrogation sans être interrogative ... Il fallait penser au question-tag, bien sûr.
OK! C'était long, très chronophage ... un vrai casse-tête.

III) ANOTHER TORTURE?
2 de vos phrases que j’ai particulièrement appréciées …
- To add a festive look to your party, choose some records of festive music and set up flashing spotlights around the room .
Pour donner un air de fête à ta fête , choisis quelques disques de musique festive et installe des projecteurs clignotants dans la pièce .
- The first harvest of the settlers on the American continent had a holiday mood that they shared with the Natives who had helped them sow and fertilize the land with decaying fish = La première récolte des colons sur le continent américain fut un jour de fête qu'ils partagèrent avec les indigènes qui les avaient aidés à semer et fertiliser le sol avec des poissons en décomposition. (story of the Mayflower)
Et puis, bien sûr, la récapitulation faite par Maxwell.

1. => touche festive, atmosphère festive
Autres expressions :
1. give a photo a festive look
1. make it (seem) very/so/extra festive
1. add a festive feel to your party
1. give your home a festive feeling
1. add a festival-like atmosphere
1. give a festive atmosphere to the simplest of salads
1. bring festive flair to holiday gift-wrapping
1. inject a festive flair to your outdoor living room
1. give a festive air to your plate / give the room a festive air
2. => air de vacances
3. => apparence ludique, amusante, originale

Je laisse deux ou trois jours aux volontaires ... S'il n'y en a pas, je mettrai les traductions, mais je pense vraiment que vous apprenez beaucoup plus en le faisant vous-mêmes.

Encore et BRAVO à tous.

hello everyone,

Je propose cette traduction

Customer service is more than waiting on (1) customers. It includes trying your best(2) to make sure that the customer is satisfied. I know customer satisfaction is extremely important to (3) your company. For example, I recently had a customer who was disappointed that we did not have an item in our store. I called four other branches of our company and finally called company headquarters, to find the item. I then had it shipped to our branch(4), and the customer had the item within four days. Working hard to meet customers’ needs(5) is always a priority.

Le service client est plus que de servir les clients. Cela inclut essayer de faire le maximum pour s'assurer que le client est satisfait. Je sais que la satisfaction du client est extrêmement importante pour une entreprise. Par exemple, j'ai récemment eu un client qui était déçu que nous n'avions pas un article en particulier dans notre magasin. J'ai appelé quatre autres filiales de notre société et finalement j'ai contacté le siège de l'entreprise, pour trouver l'article. Je l'ai ensuite fait expédier à notre succursale (4), et le client a eu l'article dans les quatre jours. Travailler dur pour répondre aux besoins des clients (5) est toujours une priorité.
