Hey , thanks for your answers ! :D

Well to improve my english, I try to watch CNN10 the friday to watch the news of the week in english. I'm learning pages of vocabulary on different subject like sustainable developement, climat change and things like that .... but the problem is I don't apply directly this vocabulary in a discussion because I don't have native english person who I can discute with ... it's for that I 'am here :D !

It will be with pleasure if you want help in french too !! If you want we can organise a voice discussion meeting to introduce oneself :)

Well we will have deal with time difference but I can make an effort :D

Mechanical designing, its for me the conception of mechanical parts or the conception of mechanical systems. For that we use some software like CATIA or SOLIDWORKS developed by Dassault.

Hello, Floxfloer. Welcome to the forum! I look forward to following your progress in English as well as your participation in any of the numerous discussions of language-learning in this forum. Just a quick note (après les fleures, vient le pot) ...

While I could be wrong, I suspect that "mechanical design" might be a slightly better term than "mechanical designing" and, depending on what kind of work you actually perform, perhaps "mechanical engineering" might be more appropriate. I would enjoy hearing from others on this and would not at all mind being corrected!

I have a feeling that industrial design is the term you're looking for as opposed to mechanical design. I only know the term because I know someone who got their bachelor's in industrial design five plus years ago. An example of one of the things that she designed was a TENS unit that was more accessible to people with specific mobility issues. I also just googled SOLIDWORKS and "industrial design" is one of the terms that they use on their website.

Here's another program that would fit under the term of industrial design.
