English comes to http://www.ledefi.com

The French America’s Cup Challenge team, LE DEFI AREVA, has just launched an English version of its much-lauded website http://www.ledefi.com.

This is the first time since the internet site was created in 1999 that an English version has been posted for the benefit of international visitors.

The English version is more simple than the original, containing only essential information about the French team. Today, anglophone visitors can access all the latest news as well as exclusive features written by journalists inside LE DEFI AREVA team.

"We realised during the last Cup that there was interest in LE DEFI outside of France, so we wanted to make sure that English-speaking visitors to the site could access good information this time around", says Project Manager of http://www.ledefi.com, Benoît Baume.

"The English version has opened the doors of LE DEFI AREVA to a much wider audience. We launched only three days ago, and we have already had an impressive number of hits. Go to http://www.ledefi.com/index_en.php3 or simply log onto the home page of http://www.ledefi.com, click on the British flag in the top right hand corner and away you go", he says.

The photo library has more then 400 photos which are also available to English-speaking viewers, as well as free-of-rights photos which can be downloaded from the Press Room.

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
