From Gentoo Wiki
My participation has been limited thus far to translating pages from English to French.
- English: C1 level.
- French: Native (which does not mean perfect).
- Wikitext: Complete beginner.
daemon does not translate to démon in French. Indeed, daemon can (rarely) mean demon in English, but, in the context of computing, the term originates from its "helper spirit" or "guardian" meaning, which is not shared with the term demon. Following various other translations (including the French translation of His Dark Materials), I recommend using daemon or dæmon in the French text.
