With much gratitude from the Csound community, this news:
Via Francois Pinot:
The French translation of the Canonical Csound Reference Manual is complete. I began this work in December 2006, and since then, this work in progress has been distributed with each release of Csound. The next release (5.14) will be the first one with a full French manual.
I will continue to keep the French version of the manual synchronized with the original one. Between two releases, people can view an up to date version of the French manual here:
Many thanks to people who helped me to achieve this work and especially to Andrés Cabrera and john ffitch for their disponibility.
-- The French Manual has been added to the Documentation page on Csounds.com for future reference.
