I have translated into French, but not easily, with (I believe) same issue
warning = notification
There are 2 kinds of notification/warning :
As alert and warning seems to be synonyms, we have to use synonyms like
notification, information, announce...
I hope it is useful.
But even if I have some ideas, I am not proud of my translation. So it
would be nice if someone else could check French translation.
