Hello everybody,

I am a French C++ developper and I want to contribute to Libreoffice.
I downloaded the Libreoffice source code and compiled it on my Ubuntu desktop computer with is configured in French but all the text in the menus is in English. I can't get the User Interface in French as you can see in the following screenshot:


So my question is: How can I get LibreofficeDev in French ? Or saying differently: How can I activate internationalization ?

Thank you by advance.
Best regards,
Adrien Ollier
