Hello, Thibaut;

A few strings do need update, you could help maintaining them in the Translation Project; you can also find more software packages to translate or proofread there.  (The Translation Project handles translation for many GNU packages, but some packages run their own translation infrastructure, like GNOME or GnuPG.)

You could also check Contributors Wanted on Savannah (including the French team), though many requests may be obsolete now.

Oh I thought that no translation had been done because I could not find the French pages.
Then are they still pages, or documentation, in English that would need a translation into French?
Or perhaps you know about a software/game designer that would have liked is product translated into French?
I could gather in this project a relatively important number of translators in the making, around ten.

Thank you very much,
Best regards,

Bouexiere <thibautb>

Thank you for interest in our website!  French translators have done some work on it already, but of course, we'd like to improve its internationalization.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am a student in Translation and Interpretation in France.
We are currently seeking to contact not-for-profit organizations with translation needs in view of establishing a partnership with our Master’s degree in translation, localization and technical communication. I really wish to specialize in Web Localization because it appeals me much.

I hope we could find a way to set up a partnership to improve the experience for your website visitors by translating it into French and internationalize it.
The aim of the partnership would be for students to undertake translation work which could benefit the organization while enhancing the students’ experience of translation for specific purposes.

If you are interested in such project I could send you a letter explaining the scope and goals of the initiative.

Happy new year,
Best regards,

Bouexiere <thibautb>
