Allen AXIS CONTRACT" Subject: French Question Just wondering how the French Canadians or Swiss French would say "clockwise" as in the sentence "Turn the key clockwise". I've been finding "Tourner la cle' en sens d'horloge" in some manuals I've been asked to revise and am wondering if this is a (1) a literal translation from English; or (2) a dialect issue to resolve with our vendor translators. I've always used and heard "dans le sens des aiguilles d'une montre" for clockwise and my fellow French colleagues agree. I will assume it is a literal translation until somebody can shed some light onto the matter.
