¨pelle¨ spade or shovel?

Bonjour Ntarpley,

You are right that 'une pelle' can also be translated with 'a shovel'. It has now been added. 

See the following for a bit more details:

une bêche (une pelle-bêche) a spade -> flat type

une pelle ronde = a shovel -> round end

 I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
