ATM in Paris Logistics

Jump to last reply

Since we don't speak or read French (other than a few words), please help in the logistics of using an ATM in Paris.

When you put your card into the reader, does it offer to do the transaction in English?

If it doesn't, is the next prompt to enter your pin? How is that spelled out in French? I can't really google translate it because I don't know how the machine presents the prompt.

Can someone show me in French, what the prompt would be to enter the pin, and then of course to recognize the next question of withdrawal, deposit etc. so we choose the right button to withdraw the specfiied amount of cash we want that day. I would like to see a preview so I can recognize it when I am at the machine if that makes any sense.

Also, is their a euro limit per day that can be withdrawn? Does that depend upon each bank? Sorry for so many questions, but this "stupid American" wants to not fumble at the machine.
