Garden Partys[edit]

Yes, the French president organises a garden party every year but what does the 14 July Elysee Palace Garden Party involve? And who will be invited by the French president? His family? His party colleagues? French generals?

Le quatorze juillet[edit]

... commonly Le quatorze juillet (French pronunciation: ​[lə.ka.tɔʁz.ʒɥiˈjɛ];
the fourteenth of July).

There is a translation error. The French do call it le quatorze juillet, but quatorze means fourteen, not fourteenth, which would be quatorzième. The phrase is the equivalent of the fourteenth of July in English, but the translation of quatorze is incorrect. Perhaps translating it "fourteen July" would be simpler. Oh, and I wouldn't use a capital L.

No, the translation is correct. (There seems to be an extra break in the phonetical bit however.) Mezigue (talk) 15:29, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
The correct transliteration would be the 14 July, but translation entails wording things in an appropriate way for the language that something is translated to. In other words, it's not a literal translation but it is the correct translation. 2602:306:80AB:60D0:2070:2BF1:9212:B7F9 (talk) 15:53, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
