Anyone fluent in English and French?

Ok, I'm at work, and they asked to translate a very official letter into English, but
1. I'm not used to doing that.
2. I have absolutely no dictionary here.
3. I would like to do a good job.

I'm giving a first try at the moment, butAny help would be much appreciated a(although I can't promise more than good reps).

Sorry for the inconvenience
With all my due respects blablabla.
Merci


Cher Monsieur,
Lauréat dans la catégorie Meilleure Action de Mécénat des premiers Art Awards, nous sommes heureux de vous envoyer le catalogue de la seconde exposition d'art contemporain actuellement dans nos murs.

Notre exposition, L'Idiotie, conçue par JYV, a donné lieu à l'édition d'un catalogue intitulé De l'Iidotie aux Burlesques contemporains. Forts de notre première expérience, nous nous sommes faits, à l'occasion de cet événement, partenaire du Jeu de Paume qui présente dans un même moment l'exposition éponyme conçue part CK.

C'est avec grand plaisir que nous vous accueillerons pour une visité privée de l'expoistion, qui se termine le 3 novembre 2005.

En vous remerciant de l'intérêt que vous portez à notre implication dans l'art contemporain et avec le plaisir de vous recevoir en Champagne.

Quel prix de mon amour! Il craint des pleurs qu'il m'oblige à répandre . Insensible au feu le plus tendre dont un coeur ait brûlé jamais , quand mes soupirs ne peuvent suspendre l'injustice de ses projets . Il fuit pour ne les pas entendre.

(July 4th, 1994 - August 5th, 2009) I love you so much... I miss you so...

Not really lol. It is contemporary art, so it's not that popular. You should hear what visitors tell me about it...

No. I work as a guidein a famous champagne house at the moment (until november), and every year, they welcome an contemporary art exhibit in their cellars, and I have to talk about it to visitors. I'm not really an expert.

Yes, I might have seen you there then (but of course, I didn't know it was you ). Are you from Ireland, then? I suppose your mothertongue is English?

Wish I could help you more, Giuliano, apparently your translation seems fine to me...
