Discussion on: How do non-native English speakers cope with language specific concepts (they learnt in English) in their mother tongue?

In France we use a lot of english terms. We have also french words that are just a little change about english ones.

Example :

  • Tuple => Tuplet
  • Number => Nombre
  • Variable => Variable (so amazing) ...

And somes are different

  • Loop => Boucle
  • Key => Clé
  • String => Texte ...

We use english one to discuss between french dev, to be more efficient (easily for languages, a "foreach" is more common in code than "Une boucle pour tous les éléments" (loop for each elements).
