Making language translations stick

The automated french translation of "Making it stick" comes out something like "He's making the stick".

Well, that's not what I intended for the title of this blog. A better translation might be...

"Rendant quelque chose de dernier de mani?re permanente."

...which is not as short as "Making it stick" but means something like "Making something last permanently."
