    you really shouldn't have swear words in french essays...

    Swear words never translate directly from one language to another - you have to take note of the words actually used in the other language, even if they seem to make no sense to you.

    The same goes for phrases in normal use, such as "guilty as charged" (the whole system of law in France is very different from that in the USA, which in turn is different from that in Britain) - seldom can it be "word for word", so never rely on a website - it might give you something silly.

    For instance: In French one single word can mean "river ferry" or "shallow cooking dish", and another single word can mean "pregnant" or "audio loudspeaker".

      How is "guilty as charged" a swearing expression? It is a normal expression within the law system of some English-speaking countries. Do people near you use "guilty as charged" to swear??!!
