1 thing I found was at your profile it says number mois (or months) then it's says ago it shouldn't :
On my profile it looks like this in french : Inscrit il y a 2 années, 3 mois ago It should say Inscrit il y a 2 années et 3 mois ago
Thank you scratch team!

Oui, c'est vrai :
On devrait dire plutôt : Les commentaires ont été désactiver pour ce compte d'utilisateur ! Pas pour ce “User Profil” !

Mistakes of French Language in scratch

In the current translation system if there isn't a translation for a phrase or word, the english version is used instead. In French the word “ago” simply isn't there, but by leaving it blank the system decides to use the default. This is unlikely to change on the current version of the site, but we're improving things like this as we convert pages to the new website and in the next version of Scratch.

Mistakes of French Language in scratch

Hello,

In France, many years ago, in videogame, characters were named “sprite” (using the english word), they have never been called “lutin”. I think translating “sprites” to “lutins” sounds very oddly in France. A better translation should be “objet” (plural : “objets”) which means “object” as in “Objects Oriented Programmation”.

Sometimes objects (sprites) represent persons (Abby for instance), in this case it is weird too, because human beings are not sprites (neither they are objects)

So I suggest to translate the word “sprite” to the expression “personnage / objet” (plural : “personnages / objets”) which means “character / object” in english.

Best regards and congratulations for such a great work.
