Thanks for the detailed description.

I have started with revision 1336 (not 1236) and will keep it up-to-
date with the latest version from svn.
As I remember the next release is planned on Feb. next year, so I 
have a little bit time for reviewing my own work.
If I'm happy with the result I will send it to you.

If you are interested in having a german translation of your homepage 
(http://www.lis.inpg.fr/realise_au_lis/kicad/) than please let me 
Would also be nice to have for german students or other interested 
people. ;)
