augmenter

English translation of augmenter

raise

The French word 'augmenter' is equivalent to the English term 'raise'. It is usually used in the context of increasing something in quantity, size, quality, or strength like we do in English. For example, when discussing salary or wage increase, one might use 'augmenter'. However, in contexts where 'raise' is used to describe bringing up a child, the French term 'élever' is more appropriate. Nonetheless, its usage depends greatly on the context in which it is used.
