This is actually rather Qt-related. The file dialog is a Qt widget and the library already offers some .ts files. The major problem however is that the .ts file is not included into the Qt library itself but must be included by FreeCAD. So, we have to use the .ts file for a specific version but there is no guarantee that it works with the different Qt versions.

If Qt included it as a resource it would be much easier to handle this.

Just tested it with the .ts file for version 4.5.3 of Qt. The dialog is completely translated there.

So, to test this on your platform get the file qt_fr.ts for your Qt version. Load it into QtLinguist and create a qt_fr.qm out of it. Copy this file into FreeCAD/src/Gui/Languages and rebuild the sources. Now check again the file dialog.

Ubuntu packaging problem. The do not deliver the appropriated languages..
