Ah great! Indeed it didn't work but I thought it was that no changes were done,
hence not results. Now it works. It'll be more confortable to follow future
changes and apply them in the translation.

Indeed. The translation has been started 2 years ago, but up-to-date now. One of
my problems was to decide to synchronize with some stable or svn release; I
choosed svn release. Now all future stable releases will have some proper
translation. The existing fr_FR contains files translated for an old
VirtualBox, older than 4.0 if I remember.
