Version 1.8.3 : translations and investigation

Version 1.8.3 brings an updated and complete french transalation of But, what’s interesting is how this translation was made. have been elected for Libre hosting plan by WebLate is a great translation platform that provide smooth work flows in a dedicated user interface.

The WebLate arms are wide open to your contributions for any language you like. You can work on it on your side as long as you want, and you’ll be helped away by WebLate automated checks (about string ending spaces or colons or comas…).
