Bonjour les francophones!

Est-ce qu'il y a quelqu'un dans le forum qui pourrait me faire une traduction francaise de ces mots de Gandhi:

Be the change you want to see in the world

Merci!!!

Sorry to post this on the IB forum, but I really need some help here!

Ok, here's a starter that people can throw stones at:

Devenez le changement que vous voulez réaliser dans le monde.

Very Happy

I really like it Tanj! That brings out the meaning much better than my Belgian contact who simply said "soyez le changement que vous voulez voir dans le monde".

My niece wanted to know what the French was but didn't tell me why. After I gave her the translation she then suddenly announced it was because she wanted to get it tatooed onto her.

Don't know how to take that tbh! Rolling Eyes

Thanks for your input!

Wow - that's upped the stakes a bit! If that's the reason, you might want to consider making it a bit more personal:

Deviens le changement que tu veux réaliser dans le monde.

But I'd check it with a native speaker before committing to the ink! Very Happy
