I need help from anyone who speaks French. A project I am working on
now is about Henri Rousseau, "Le Douanier." I need to know the best
translation for Le Douanier. Alternate translations include agent,
customs agent, customs inspector, or inspector. The title is a
tongue-in-cheek nickname in reference to Rousseau's job as a collector
of tolls at a Parisian toll booth.
I've used a variety of French to English translators, have read several
different books, and have spoken to someone from Canada. Can someone
give me a definitive translation?
