Can you tell me please what "détaché" is supposed to be? What I have found out at least is that the string comes from the Python script

Sorry, I had to reopen to answer.

Thanks for your fix. I can't reproduce this bug with version 1.16 available in f23 as the text written is "Unknown".
When reading your patch, I assume it fix the issue.

But when going to your translation platform, french is 100% :

So why is it written "Unknown" ?

Note : the second bug has not been corrected :
please have a look at this screenshot :
There is back-slashes before apostrophe.

On the first screen :
 * block "Sur le web" (on the web) => yes, the bug is present
 * block "Exemples de projets" (projects examples) => yes, the bug is present
 * block "recent files" => no problem
 * block "last commits" => no problem
 * block "start a new project" => can't try

Additional issue I didn't notice before :
 * the tab name is "Start page", it should be french also.

thanks for your help, it's just a tiny review but details matters.

Where in the About dialog does it say "Unknown"? This could be a problem of the Fedora package.

In the source tarball a file Version.h is deployed but when the package maintainer downloads the sources directly from git this file is not included. Then it will be created at build time and there it can happen that not all relevant information can be extracted and it simply writes "Unknown". This text does not go through the translation process.

"Unknown" is written for "Revision number" and "Release date". Issue is the same in English when running FreeCAD in english :
# LANG=en_US.utf8 FreeCAD
I'll make a ticket in fedora bugtracker if you say so.
