Hello ! This site does not speak French and I regret it

Historically I have been using Pentax devices for 40 years
In silver: k1000 mx me super A Lx etc ..
In digital k10 k5 and now k3 and k01 with a large target range
This forum is little read in France and it seems to me interesting to publish a French version to boost trade in this country
The marketing is weak and the brand is often placed unfairly negative deal with Nikon and Canon dealers
On social networks automatic translations are laughable.
Note: French read English but rejects it

Welcome, photography is above language, but when the going gets tough... Google Translate is your friend.

Bienvenue, la photographie est au-dessus de la langue, mais quand les choses deviennent difficiles ... Google Translate est votre ami.

Hello from another Australian, elegay. I don't speak French, but Google Translate can help out. The translation may be a bit strange sometimes. Give it a try.

Bonjour d'un autre Australien, elegay. Je ne parle pas français, mais Google Translate peut aider. La traduction peut être un peu bizarre parfois. Essaie.

Welcome from the middle of the US the state of Kansas specifically

I am amazed when I travel outside of the US at the ability of people i meet to speak multiple languages, not only the people one meets who deal specifically with tourists but also individuals you just meet on the street as it were. Most of us in the US are severely limited in that ability - to our detriment.

Personally [and you may laugh at this,] I had 3 years of French in high school 9th - 12th grades - and then 1 year in college which was translating french novels into english (no I did not go to the library and just get the book in english) However that was around 30 years ago and I wasn't good at speaking French at all. now, well, how are you at doing something you haven't done in 30 years ????

Photography however is kinda of a universal language is it not.

Although a new member, I have found that members of the forums are quite willing to help folks with questions and knowledge. I hope to enjoy your images soon.
