Oh my, Simon, well done, what's going on?

‘The contract was mediated through the Romanian typography but was never respected by the French counterparts’

Everyone knows the French counterparts won't respect you [in the morning] ...

typography = bureaucracy?

In the sense that you can't have reports and studies without typography.

I once had "formal" (by which I meant relating to physical form in an aesthetic sense) translated into Polish as "official".
If you don't speak a language, a good way to check a translation is to have it returned to the original language. Just once, if you keep going, you end up with something like the specimen text on my web site :-)
