Talk:186,000 cases of chikungunya in Réunion
I translated fr:186.000 cas de chikungunya à La Réunion into English, a French article of fr.wikinews. I don't speak French well enough. So it would have mistakes. Check it, please! --Angelix 16:36, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

I have attempted to improve the translation and to make the English read more naturally, mais je suis très nul en français! In particular, I used "markedly" for "particulièrement", "is also present" for "s'étend également", "no one" for "personne", and "anticipated the progression of it" for "en anticiper l'évolution". I also made a few other changes:
- Added a gloss "a viral fever", after "Chikungunya".
- Added a link to La Cire, cellule d'intervention régionale en épidémiologie de Rhône-Alpes, which I think is them.
- Translated the name of CIRE as "Regional Epidemiological Intervention Center of the Rhône-Alpes". (But the name, literally translated, is more like "Cell of intervention regional in epidemiology of Rhône-Alpes". ?? "Center" is definitely a free translation on my part.)
My translation work definitely needs to be second guessed, and the overall tone and wording could use more work. I would also advise changing the headline to
- 186,000 Cases of Viral Fever in Réunion
or, perhaps better still,
- Viral Fever Strikes 186,000 in Réunion
Actually, "strikes" sounds like they just got it, whereas the story describes a trend that has apparently been going on since at least the beginning of the year, so "afflicts" might be better? DavidConrad 18:46, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
Are there any sources in English? If so can they be translated? Jason Safoutin 18:29, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
