Hi there.

I'm using Systran to translate a long document (for personal interest) which has a couple of sections with a lot of what looks like financial and socio-economic terminology. I can fix up most of the rough English, and I do read a lot of French, but I don't know financial terminology really at all. I may be over-cautious with some terms, but I just want to double check. Help would be appreciated. I will put the target phrase in each case between slashes. If you notice anything else wrong that I am not seeing, please let me know. Thanks.

p. 118

En termes d'emplois, une telle réforme administrative va bien plus loin, ////// et à bien meilleur marché, ////// que toute politique de décentralisation industrielle, même s'il est entendu qu'il faut s'efforcer ////// de les mener de front. //////

In terms of employment, such an administrative reform goes much further, ////// and with cheaper good, ////// than any policy of decentralization of industry, even if it is understood that it is necessary to endeavor to ////// bring them forward (carry them out). //////

"de front" here means "simultaneously, in parallel".
