    Unhappy Which Word is more accurate TO or WITH

    Hello friends,

    I've Been translating a text (French to English) and I want to ask you which translation you think is more accurate.

    "Notre équipe vous aide à réaliser vos séjours à la carte, garantit une sélection des meilleures adresses et réserve encore vos vols aux tarifs les plus corrects."

    "Our team helps you realize your tailor-made holidays, ensures a selection of the best addresses and even reserves your flights with the most correct rates."

    ou

    Consider this slightly looser translation:

    'Our team helps to make your dream holiday come true, guarantees a choice of the best accommodation and even books your flights at the best rates.'

    I agree with Rover, except that his version does not quite capture the precise sense of à la carte. May I suggest you start "Our team helps make your tailor-made holiday a reality..." and then continue à la Rover.
