I started a translation. I'm not a professional translator, but I hope that helps. --Anneyh (talk) 20:59, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
Prolongation or extension? I checked a London articles and opted for extension --Anneyh (talk) 21:52, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
Abutment the term in French is a very precise architecture word that I actually didn't know before: Pied-droit... as far as I could check, abutment sounds correct --Anneyh (talk) 21:52, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
- Need to remove the Champs de Mars station on the grid map so as not to confuse tourists?
An edit was made to remove the text " partly common with line 9" but there are 5 stations in shared between line 8 and line 9:
Richelieu — Drouot
Grands Boulevards (not indicated as connection on the line plan, I cannot remember if you can actually go from one line to the other)
Bonne Nouvelle (not indicated as connection on the line plan, I cannot remember if you can actually go from one line to the other)
Strasbourg — Saint-Denis
The tracks are dedicated, but they follow the same way. I was not to sure how to translate suivant un tracé parabolique par la rive droite de la capitale en partie commun avec la ligne 9, suggestions are welcome. --Anneyh (talk) 07:19, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
I would translate that phrase as “follows an arc along the capital’s right bank alongside line 9”, although “follows an arc along the Seine’s north shore close to line 9” probably reads better in English. Useddenim (talk) 17:36, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
«shared station» is not good either.
Be carefull that most metros count 1 stop = 1 station.
This is not the case here: Paris metro has 300 stations = 384 stops.
(which is quite a disavantage in bad statistics which just use numbers without trying to verify there're about the same data)
Stations are a group of stops with the same name, usually near, but it's not always the case (see Montparnasse-Bienvenüe).
«Follows the same path/direction» is a little less misleading, «follows a parallel path» looses the notion of proximity.
«Follow a path next to» is good I think but looses some location details: line 8 and 9 are sometimes one above the other, and sometimes one around the other (I don't remember exactly where and which at this late hour).
