Word Tailoring is a dictionary-style reference tool that allows you to access a wealth of information quickly and easily. With a few clicks, you can find a number of English equivalents for a given French word or phrase used in everyday or administrative writing. As these French keywords often have multiple meanings, Word Tailoring contains concise examples in both English and French for each equivalent to help you select the best possible translation for your context.
To begin your search, go to the alphabetical index above and click on the first letter of the word you are searching for.
Note: Word Tailoring is available in English only. However, a similar writing tool, the Lexique analogique, is available in French.
