Unlike the Germans, the French prefer native words to borrowing from English. Here are a few examples:
|English ⇔ French Computer Terminology|
|CD (Compact Disc)||Cédé|
|database||base de données|
|drag and drop||glisser-déposer|
The French newsgroup for Java is called fr.comp.lang.java.
If you have ideas for useful links for this entry, please pass them on. I would appreciate anything that would be useful for converting programs to work in French, or for French-speaking Java programmers. Information for people fluent in French to help them translate English technical terms is most welcome.
