I agree. We should replace French by, eh let's say, Dutch to also get a 
"small" language in ;-)

OK. I've changed it to:
If you selected a language that is recognized as an official language for 
more than one country[6], you will next be asked to select a country. If 
you choose Other at the bottom of the list, you will be presented with a 
list of all countries, grouped by continent. If the language has only one 
country associated with it, that country will be selected automatically.

The footnote [6] has:
In technical terms: where multiple locales exist for that language with 
differing country codes.

Thanks Christian.
