Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
Almire Gandonnière (Loué, Sarthe, France, 3 August 1814 – ) was a French writer, remembered today only as the collaborator with Hector Berlioz of the libretto for La Damnation de Faust (1846), which was based on the translation of Goethe's masterpiece by Gérard de Nerval. Gandonnière, under various pseudonyms, published satires, verses and occasional critical essays in the Paris press.
