True. Nicely putted. My email maybe sounded provocative but my
intention was to remember us all not to criticize.

Such notice is already there in lang file. Some translators decided to
translate it even before translation of Constitution itself.

In ideal case for translation we would have volunteer IT lawyer in
each language which is fully fluent in French. No offence but I barely
read French. Well same goes to legal language ;). But I still wonder
what can I do to improve situation. Maybe some volunteer will show up
eventually if we discuss such a need sometimes. We should know our
weak spots to make them stronger.
