Translating the programs aren't all that difficult, you just have two 
columns of text separated by tabs, english to the right, french to the 
left. I think you use 'newdict dictionary.fr' to get a list of new words 
that are missing from the old french translation. I prefer to modify 
line 9 to:

grep -h -v '^#' dictionary.sv.in | cut -f 1 -s | sort | uniq > alldict
because else you will get a lot of obsolete strings to translate as 
well, I think.

When you are finished updating dictionary.fr.in, run 'make' and 'make 
install' in the 'common' subdirectory to update and install the new 
translation and take it for a spin.
