Some good news for all people speaking French in the world ;-)

PGP 5.53fr: a team of programmers based in Belgium and UK 
have started a French version of PGP for Windows.

Four programmers based in Belgium and UK announced 
they intend to publish a PGP 5.53fr version based on the 
PGPi code. 

This news is important because it would be the first non-English 
version of the best encryption program, and it would be made 
in the national language of the country which symbolizes 
cryptographic prohibition in the world: France.

All information on this work are on the web site "Traduction 
de PGP 5.5.3 sous Windows 95/98/NT" : 


The authors say there are looking for : "Developers in Microsoft 
Visual C++ 5.0 (...) Anonymous participations are also welcome."
