Recent translation projects

This post is also available in: Français (French)

Recent translation projects from French to English totalled around 550k words in 2019 in a wide variety of industrial and technical domains.

I’ve collected many specific and general terms over the years and recently combined them into one translation database. These are the number of terms against the number of words translated or proofread by domain.
