This is fluent French, even though you may not like the way it is
formulated, and want to review it.

Edit and change it if you want. There's no problem to improve the
translation. But don't say it was not made by a non-fluent. You should
have looked at the history and would have seen all the translations I
did on Meta or elsewhere. I'm French, live in France, French is my
native language, and I made that carefully, even though there is no
"BIG MISTAKE", that's only a question of style.
