    "Situation becomes freer"

    Hi!

    I am helping to translate a film and am having doubts about the following sentence:

    "Only a year had passed since Stalin’s death, but the situation had already become freer and a new topic was introduced to the public – better customer service in the stores."

    Is it correct?

    Also, if several enquieries are allowed, can a fashion house becomethe most important producer and introducer of western-like fashion design
    ?

    I've been googling for ages - thank you!

    Re: "Situation becomes freer"

    Perhaps "Freedom increased" is a better option?

    Re: "Situation becomes freer"

    Welcome to the forums, Este.

    '...the situation had become freer' and 'freedom increased' are both correct and mean the same.

    Please start a new thread for the unrelated question.

    I don't think 'topic' is the word you want - unless you mean as a topic of conversation. Maybe 'concept'.
