Translation from French wanted.


I think it's polite, but remember Lady Bracknell. It's sung/talked over Prix choc, Etienne de Crecy, which has different words. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JIn...ew?usp=sharing

It doesn't sound like French people? I'm a poor judge.

My impression is these persons are foreigners. But not 100% sure: for my sensible ears, hearing the TV in France (even a minister.. or the president..) and hearing French on streets in big towns or in Paris give me the feeling I am in a ghetto or the north of africa. My best experience the last month was hearing a priest from Togo speaking french (he had a light word deformation due to its country of origin but the wording and syntax was a pleasure).
So, perhaps a french person with other ears can say its communication receiver/decoding result.. if it is french "native" or "like french" and if the persons speaking it are from "holland" "germany" "north africa" "togo" "chti" "south france" "alsace".. who knows, whatever it is, french is not french from every mouth (like english.. english from the royals sound "primitive pedant", from a scottish mouth "funny communication support for negotiating separation from UK", from an australian mouth "desert survival streamlined language", from ireland "friendly countryside communication method when the other dont speak irish", from USA "cowboy/gettho/trumpy/capitalist/slave-ordering/english/louisiana-french/.." haha

personally, I would put it loud and ask a friend if its iPhone can translate the text.. I never used any voice translation program.

Unfortunately my ears aren't the best ones
I tried to load the audio file in Audacity, to use the vocal isolation function (under Effects menu). However, Audacity finds that the two stereo channels are almost 100% the same, and small differences are due to the mp3 encoding. As a result, that isolation function can't work.
Is it possible to provide any other true stereo audio file for this song?

I asked my French friend (I hesitated because she's 80 and it could be naughty). She said it sounded like French persons, thought the voice sounded familiar but couldn't place it.

Do iPhones do that? There must be a website.

This is a found tape of unknown provenance. Most of it is Joe Frank's 'Summer notes', the only difference is the broadcast version lacks this and 2 other segments in French backed up by the same music. He replaced it with content he made himself (the rest of the episode has actors). I hypothesize that it was a working version that slipped out of his control. The person who has it doesn't remember where he got it.
