Le site de l’Académie française est en cours de rénovation. Le public pourra en découvrir les nouveaux contenus et les nouvelles fonctionnalités en 2012.

One of the better online monolingual dictionaries I used: Le Trésor de la Langue Française Informatisé. They do not allow linking directly to an entry, so you have to search on métier and click through on the results.


Ceci n'est pas un seing.

When you click OK there you can enter the site, but to get your question answered you have to work through email. If language were mon métier maybe I would do so, but I'm sure zmjezhd has searched the Trésor for it, which is best.

Then why your earlier post - in French?

Leave it to THE MASTER to translate it for you Faldage-s. This is what it reads:"the site of the academy of French is under renovation. The public can pour over its decorations, its new contents and its new functions in 2012."

Yes, but when you click OK in no matter what language you like you get this: link and then you're up till your neck in French. OK? You can search all of it.

That much I got. Trying to find any helpful information on the etymology of métier was beyond me.

The only French I know is from some very long ago coworkers, so I can't translate hardly any of it. I did Google it and learned that the "Immortals" mentioned on the site are their board members. I guess humility isn't one of their requirements!
