    Dedicated or Dedicated itself??

    I am trying to translate a sentence from French to English and doubting about this subject. It would say "TEM (it is a company) has been dedicated itself to ...(its activity). Would you say that "itself" is natural and necessary in English? or just "...has been dedicated to..."

    Re: Dedicated or Dedicated itself??

    The following are natural:

    'TEM has dedicated itself to ...'
    'TEM is dedicated to ...'

    If this does not satisfy you, post the French sentence in the Other Languages forum.
