Indeed there is a lot of work to be done on the French translation. There is
a Mailman-FR list at http://listes.rezo.net/mailman/listinfo/mailman-fr --
Ousmane is leading the effort there. Unfortunately he is almost alone, and
French is not his mother tongue.

I would add that the translation process is a bit awkward. Aren't there
tools such as online shared databases that can be used to coordinate
translations? I can commit some translations and corrections once in a
while, but the effort to do when you have to proofread and correct
everything is way too high for the time I can spend on it.
