Actually I got the page in French (which is good) so I don't know if I 
got the latest version. But I did not find a way to switch the language 
on the page (I could reconfigure the browser but that's not reasonable 
to expect). So this raises two questions:

 * What's the right way to handle out of date translation?
   Ignore the translation if it's older than the English file?
   Consider each language to be completely independent from the others? 
   (i.e. they are not translations of each other but independently 
   developped texts and thus cannot be 'out of date'; a bit like the 
   Wikipedia articles)

 * Shouldn't we have a way to switch between languages?

Also, the link to the next page still says 'Wine's History: Next' 
instead of 'L'historique de Wine: Suivant'. So maybe links are not 
localizable? (it could also be that the translation is missing)
