Sorry, I replied earlier only to the sender and not to the list. That
could be an interesting topic for others translators so I decided to
forward the reply bellow to the list also.

Hmmm, *very* interesting. Shall I include this commentin the first line of
translated file ? Does this matter which line number I use to keep the

Also, and most important, shall I use the version number of the original
english version in the comment or the translated file version number ?
