I didn't intend to offense you and the other translators at all, you did a
huge work in translating the whole survey; it's always easier to proofread
than to translate. In addition I'm conscient you were a native french

I've slightly improved the introduction screen in order to make it more
readable, somes sentences were (from my point of view) not very natural,
that's what I was trying to say. Well, I'm not very subtle in english, but
I respect all the work done by contributors and especially translators.
