i would even make that fellow de la societé des actuaires, even though it's unnecessary given that SoA is a proper noun.

Raskolnikov, l'actuariat en france est le plus grand de tous les pays européens. il y a toutes les plus grandes firmes multinationales ici, et chaqu'une agrandisse et il y a beaucoup plus de travail que des actuaires pour le faire. en particulier, les big 4 expandent agressivement et employent des actuaires de partout. tu es dans une sitution semblable à moi, sauf que j'ai aussi une nationalité européenne. il est toujours bon d'avoir des examens, mais en france ce n'est pas tellement nécessaire.

Bien merci,
Learn alternate characters; you don't even need Unicode for this one, in Windows just type Alt+0231 (on the numpad) to get ç.

Anyway I would naïvely (use Alt+0239) translate the phrase and use the initials of each "important" word, like MSA (Membre de la Société des Actuaires).

You guys seem to have a weird fixation for french...

Anyway, in french (Quebec, Canada), people tend to say "Fellow de la Société des Actuaires" or "Fellow de la Society of Actuaries".
