What got me started is that "Characters | Category | Label | keycap" remained untranslated, i.e. its French translation was "keycap". 

A number of keyword translations are missing or wrong. I can tell that all actual contributors are working hard to fix the issues.
I can imagine that it’s by lack of time in front of the huge mass of data, or by feeling so alone (only three corporate contributors, 
no liaison or NGOs). No wonder if the official French translators are all sulking the job (reportedly, not me figuring out).
