Hi Mike!

Sorry for the once again delayed reply, things have been very hectic at work in the 
past week (and I'm expecting that next week will probably be similar).

Yep, I saw his post and this I was indeed considering the places where I overrid the 
text that came from the application a temporary fix... As you can guess however I am 
not as confortable as a native speaker of English would be to change the spelling of 
English words (especially since the spelling of these words is actually the right one 
in some parts of the world I kinda feel weird to decide to change their spelling 
since I am not a native speaker).

I will however submit a patch and let you (as in devs) decide whether you apply it or 

BTW, I do agree that they should normally be in the same language/variant if only for 
consistency sake (see last paragraphs of 

I will be submitting an update to the translation as soon as the other patch will 
have been applied since I noticed a few things I want to correct (problems which were 
  present before the update and which I noticed after it was committed (one of the 
singular form is inconsistent with all the others for example...) and I forgot to 
suppress the obsolete entries (on the French translation we only suppress them when 
we submit them and I forgot to do it).

BTW, I did spot another British English word... Initialising is spelled 
"initializing" in US English, right?
