To end this useless discussion, it's sarcasm too. I can use a lot of 
IMHO myself.  "sorry it's not my fault i'm not perfect" because it's 
easy to criticize *after* someone make some work. Sorry for non French 
reader, but there is a French expression far that (I'm not smiling 
too) : "inspecteur des travaux finis" ! At first, I take your comments 
and make some changes in my translation and try to discuss with you 
about what I disagree. But it seems you take my comments as a personal 
offense and I don't see any offense in my comments (?). Fortunately, 
there are smarter guys there who try to sort things out (Thanks Bernard).

It's not really a rush but the last French translation was quite old 
(2008) and the next stable release of VDR (2.0) is coming soon. You say 
you don't use French so it doesn't matter to you but not to me. My 
intend was to have at least a translation for this release even if it 
was not perfect. Before this, I haven't see anything here about the 
French translation and there was nothing in the dvbkivabien2 forum too.

I'm happy now because with this intervention, I'm sure there will be a 
French translation in the next release, mine or an other, I don't care !
