Okay, this is the thing. I have a sentence I want to put into a story, a sentence in French. It should be along the lines of 'Orleans Farm Machinery. Made in France.' and ideally be easily understood by an English reader.

My attempt was:

Manufacture Francaise. Orleans ferme machinerie.

Of course, I have no idea if this makes any sense or not. Little help?

Might I suggest...

Fabrique en France

This is even better now that I see it. You could also add a company tag line, along the lines of, 'Ask for the best!'
(demandez le meilleur)

I'd go with 'Fabrique' over 'Fait'

... althouth 'Made in...' seems to be universal. i doubt that a French manufacturer producing for export would stick with the French version of 'Made in..."

Come to think of it...everything here says fabrique too. I change my vote. (-;

"Fabriquée en France", surely, because a machine agricole is feminine.
