Bonjour. Est-ce que quelqu'un peut me dire ce qui ne va pas dans ma traduction ? Merci.
sentence : Labour has a comfortable majority in Parliament, so the significance of the by-election is symbolic. It is no less important for that.
translation : Le parti travailliste a une majorité confortable au parlement, ce qui fait que l’importance de l’élection partielle est symbolique. Ce n’en est pas pour autant moins important.

A little local difficulty
On May 22nd a by-election is scheduled to replace Crewe’s previous Labour MP, Gwyneth Dunwoody, who died on April 17th. Labour has a comfortable majority in Parliament, so the significance of the by-election is symbolic. It is no less important for that. Were Conservatives to win, their first by-election gain since 1982 would quicken momentum built up by months of large opinion-poll leads and a strong showing at the local elections on May 1st. To overturn Labour’s majority of 7,078 in Crewe, they need to change the minds of 8 % of the electorate. A similar national swing at a general election would give them a solid parliamentary majority. (…) Predicting the result is a fraught game. Both Labour and the Tories are cannily playing down expectations. At the local elections on May 1st, voters in Crewe backed the Tories over Labour by 45 % to 29 %. But a poll on May 11th showed the Tories leading Labour by only 43 % to 39 %, with the Lib Dem candidate, Elizabeth Shenton, on 16 %. This is partly because Ms Dunwoody’s huge popularity is rubbing off on her daughter, Tamsin, airlifted in from Wales to fight the seat for Labour.
