Question from Helen de Baar:

Hello, I doubt about the following sentence: internal speaking in principle 3 years contract. J'ai traduit "contrat interne sur, en principe 3 ans. What do you think? Thank you.

A comma too much maybe. If it is meant to be an official contract I wonder what the word "speaking" is doing there. It could also be understood as: "Internally we are discussing a contract /consisting/ of about three years." To be sure what they mean you have to ask them

je dirais "contrat interne sur une période, en principe, de trois ans"

It means internal contract for, in principal, three years.

The original syntax might be 'internal / speaking in principle/ 3 years contract'. If so, than the French translation could be 'stagiaire, parlant en principe, contrat de trois ans'...
