Hi Nick
An "error" in the french localization file of DC3:
Format>Texte>coupure des mots
The technical word for "coupure des mots" is (in French) césure.
#1. A menu item must begin with a capital;
#2. Like you do in SP, a better label for this function would be something like "Autoriser la césure".
This applies to BCC, L&A too.

A horror (yes, really ;^)): Ortographe must be Orthographe (Édition>Ortographe>Ortographe…

The same word (arrière-plan (background)) is used in two slightly different context:
Envoyer à l'arrière-plan: Send to Back
Mettre en arrière-plan: Move to Background
This is confusing (in French at least).
Maybe adding the word "calque" (= layer) would be less confusing (something like: Déplacer dans le calque d'arrière-plan = Move to the Background Layer).

More, I think that menu items should not only use the same shortcuts and the same labels but should be placed at the same places (same menus). This makes easier, when using different BeLight applications, to find these commands (specially when not using shortcuts): Fonts and Colors are found in Window menu in DC (and in the Font sub-menu of Format, too), L&A and BCC but is located in Format menu in SP.

More, there're some typos in some categories names of the Clip Art menu:
Réligion sould be Religion (w/o accent)
Fleure should be Flore.

Jean-Jacques,

Thank you very much for these comments! These mistakes seem to be present in the program for quite long time.
