French translation of the Scientific Guide to 'Skeptics Handbook'

Posted on 28 September 2010 by John Cook

A Scientific Guide to the 'Skeptics Handbook' is now available in French. Personally, I think this is pretty cool because my mother is French (but as I grew up in Australia, she never taught me French which was a shame). Many thanks to Olivier who did the translation.

Note - the Scientific Guide has also been translated into a few other languages, shown below. If you're interested in helping translate the Guide into another language, you can download the Word document, translate it and email me the translation. I'll then insert the translated text into the existing design and email back a PDF to check that it all came out right. But best first to contact me to ensure noone else is already working on your language (versions in Dutch, Danish, Portuguese and Japanese are close to completion).
