May I suggest an addition?
" http://www.franche-comte.org/dn_industrial_and_defensive_architecture/ " It would certainly add to the lack of explanation found now on this site!126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:04, 14 June 2011 (UTC)Ronald L. Hughes
Thus, English readers are left to their own devices to figure out just what the words in French mean. That is most English readers might well understand that "Salins" means "salts" or in this case "salt water", but did the brainaic who posted this site ever condsider the other words? NO! The mostly un-educated person on first glance at this site, does not receive even the most rudimentary background in the meaning of the words. Thus ""Bains" could mean either a "pot" or "basin" etc., which would really describe the "salt works" which at one time overran this area! Thus the salt water would be either boiled or left to evaporate in the Sun, to relieve itself of the very important substance, of "Salt!"188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:16, 14 June 2011 (UTC)Ronald L. Hughes
- Why do you want a place name translated? Do you also want the sea port of Le Havre http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Havre to have its name translated to The Haven? When someone writes an entry for the salt works or the salt baths then you can expect the terms to be in English, but how am I supposed to find a town if it doesn't have an entry under its own name?
