I'm not such what units are used in France but I assume you are going the US type units to metric.

Anyway, for the unit convesions try this site:
http://www.onlineconversion.com/
They have sections where it does the math for you.
OR FoodTV has a helpful table if you search for Measurements and Conversion Table
http://www.foodnetwork.com

If you are mathematically challenged, remember the units to help you along:

How many mL in 3 Tbsps?

3Tbsp x  15mL   = 45mL
            1 Tbsp

Unluckily, you can't change something that is a volume to a weight simply without a density.

The Google Calculator has been fairly helpful converting some measurements for me: "The calculator can solve math problems involving basic arithmetic, more complicated math, units of measure and conversions, and physical constants."

thanks guys! you're awesome. now that i have the "how to convert" problem solved - does ANYone know what to convert TO??? that's where my real problem lies. in a french recipe are sugar and butter measured in liters? mL? grams? i assume butter is grams, and teaspoons and tbls are mL i think, but as for the rest.... even a site that has recipes actually written in french might help. i did a google for that but after several false hits came up empty.

Flour and sugar are usually given in grams or kilograms in the European recipes I've used (French and Danish); this cooking conversion calculator has plenty of densities programmed in.
