A petit truc I've just found ....if you're having trouble finding the right spelling for a verb form.
Type 'verbe xxx' into google.fr, this site http://www.la-conjugaison.fr tops the list in the search results. Click on it and there you are, all the tenses etc of that verb xxx set out for you.
Maybe my battered copy of Bescherelle Conjugaison has had it's day.

Brilliant, Liz - I'll make it a sticky !

Here is another useful site, Word Reference. There is also a forum where translations of words or expressions are discussed !

Blaze i also find wordreference.com a useful site.. Cos it gives context and has a verb conjugator too. I shall look at the Liz's suggestion as well.

A recent .....hmm ....acquaintance used
the word 'foncierement' on me and I almost fell for it until I checked
and found that I am ......fundamentally .....what she said.

La vache!

Someone posted a link to reducing the size of photos but I can't find it. Can that person very kindly put it on here please. I've posted a classified ad but can't attach a photo and really would like to.

Thank you.

Sueindoors, I've posted a comment on a thread called "posting photos on the forum". Hopefully that has the information you were seeking?

Another very useful one is Linguee. Like most translators, we use it when we're stuck as it gives you the word / phrase in various contexts. Don't rely on the translations marked with a yellow triangle...
