Potential problems in Français (French) language

Go back.

This page will help identify potential problems in your language file. I don't offer a way to fix this automatically, so you'll have to edit the language file by hand. Hopefully this page will still be of some help. Note that not all of these lines have to be actual problems, so pay attention to what you do.

Wrong empty strings

When the English language is set to "" or none, the translation should follow. The strings below don't do this. This is an error and should be fixed.
