If you want to hold an international technical conference, it needs
to either be in English or you need to provide high-quality translation
services from French to English.

Just because you are planning to hold a physical conference within
France at some point, it doesn't mean that the official language
spoken at the conference should be French. If you want to attract
people from all over, that's doomed to failure unless you provide
high-quality translation services.

What a highly negative post...

I'm sure it will be a big success in France, and amongst
many others VMS'ers fluent in French.

Feel free to arrange a conference in any language you like, but
do not kick on those that are actually *doing* something.

I have already registrered, of course...

Quel esperanto ? L'esperanto unix ou microsoft ?
Ou plus ancien (genèse chapitre 11) ?

Mon combat (I'm just a lonesome warrior) : préserver toutes les espèces en voie de disparition, dans leur plus grande diversité. Après, ok, qu'elles parlent entre elles en espranto :)

Ah, Esperanto. Another example of wasted time. :-)
I actually knew some once.

Oracle Classic on OpenVMS.
