Well... Around here we've been used to Microsoft translations like:

ETES-VOUS CERTAIN [O/N] ?

... and of course pressing 'o' doesn't work while 'y' does. :-)

Wanting to localize such low-level keywords is utopia. Otherwise you'll
want to translate command names like free, rm, mv, etc. and yet programming
languages as well like C keywords. And then you come to a point where
nothing could be interoperable any more.
