1. Astron,  I've just finished compiling latest LibO 3.5 branch. I confirm
the patch has been pushed in master and 3.5 branches. I've no more problem
with French translation. Thanks for having put my name in git log.

By my technical prerequisites, I could have done the required modification
all by myself. But I still need some time to be more familiar with LibO code
organization. For example, what does this hard-coded macro
And how to get an instant view of code modification I did? I've to run make
-rs, which a bit slow. I can't stand waiting. (ccache is installed and work

2. Michael : As you was insisting : I've updated the LibO 3.5 Release Notes
with a great screenshot. :P

3. Concerning the "Statistics" strings. I think it's really important for
the end-user to get a consistent look and fell in the whole LibO interface.
Indeed, the feature found at File - Properties - Statistics and Tools ->
Statistics are both the same. Both features (and name) are definitely linked
together. If we update the first, this latter have to be renamed too.

My pool goes to "Statistics" because:
- in LibO 3.4 it was called like this;
- we have the same feature called like this in MSO : it could be confusing
for the LibO newbie (Typical student reaction: I have to count the number of
words I used for my homework e.g. writing exercises / redactions. I don't
find the statistics feature like in Word. Pff LibO is crappy... I'm getting
back to MSO.) --> It's the request for help, I'm sure we will have for the
forthcoming version if we rename this small (but essential!) feature.
- French and other translators are continuing to call this feature

How do you view this?


Ps: I'm on exam for now. I won't be back until I haven't finished these.
Tomorrow C# .NET :-(
