I was checking online a press release that I translated recently and noticed that the proofreader changed back to English the date and the city of LONDON. I have always translated London by Londres. Some other terms that have the perfect equivalent in French were changed back to English. I really don't see why.

Do we not translate the date of press releases now ?

You are right Feb 13, 2008

I believe what you did was right. The reviewet might be mistaken or have some other unknown reason.

Why don`t you ask your client about it?

Check with your client Feb 13, 2008

I believe your practice is the usual one. Your client's choice may be as simple as making it easier for monolingual English personnel to find the French version of a given press release. Your client can tell you whether this is indeed the case.
