France gives type a bad name


"The French national typography is accused to bribing several officials in Romania, in 2003, just to get a 20 million dollars worth contract, several French publications inform."

Assume a typo typo

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 :-)
