A french man gives his comments on your map ...

Postby Tom32 on Sun Oct 07, 2007 1:00 pm

First of all, great job, i ve been awaiting for that one for some time, as all French CC members i believe.

For the sake of correctness and consistency, I would just like to give you some comments on wording, so that hopefully you can make it perfect :

Continent names
- Pyrenees continent shall definitely be renamed "Aquitaine", as "Pyrenees" is only the the name of the mountain chain separating Spain and France.
- Alps continent shall be renamed "PACA" (standing for Provence-Alpes-Cote d'azur)

Spelling mistakes
- Loire-Atlantic shall be renamed "Loire-Atlantique"
- Cote d'Armor shall have a terminal "s" : Cotes d'Armor (unlike Cote d'Or which is a single coast)
-Lozerre has only one "r" : Lozere.
- Alps => Alpes

Consistency and aestethic
- Vienne is ok, but quite administrative. Given the borders you made, "Poitou" would be much nicer and accurate
- Same for Haute-Vienne. "Perigord" would sound so much nicer.
- ...... Doubs => Jura
- ....... Var => Provence
- ....... Paris => Ile-de-France
- ....... Pyrenees (territory) => Pays Basque
- ....... Aude => Languedoc
- ....... Cher => Berry
- ....... Corsica => Corse
- ....... continent "Burgondy => Bourgogne
- ........continent "Britanny" is wrong, even in English i think it shall be Britain. In French : Bretagne
- ........ continent "Picardy" => Picardie, but "Nord" would be quite more appropriate given your boundaries
- Charente would be nicer with an "s", as your boundaries include both Charentes, the Charente, as well as the Charente-maritime. You can also use "Angoumois", which is the traditional name for this area.

I did not mention mistakes due to the lack of accent in english language, but if you are willing to, i can help you correct that too.

Cheers and thx again for your work ;)
