ok, the ddtp db has this english/french apache description:

| Description: Versatile, high-performance HTTP server
|  The most popular server in the world, Apache features a modular
|  design and supports dynamic selection of extension modules at runtime.
|  Some of its strong points are its range of possible customization,
|  dynamic adjustment of the number of server processes, and a whole   
|  range of available modules including many authentication mechanisms,
|  server-parsed HTML, server-side includes, access control, CERN httpd
|  metafiles emulation, proxy caching, etc.  Apache also supports multiple
|  virtual homing.
|  .
|  Separate Debian packages are available for PHP, mod_perl, Java
|  Servlet support, Apache-SSL, and other common extensions.  More
|  information is available at http://www.apache.org/.

first my personal opinion: I like the french format

If you insist on your format, you should talk with the french translator
or better with the french translation group
(debian-l10n-french@lists.d.o) and find a solution.
