There is one for Spain, Russia, and other countries and not for France? Is this a deliberate choice? I think the French translation community is very active and deserves a special section too.

Good day.

When I was a Mod last year, I suggested a UK forum and offered to moderate it.
This was because all the normal forums are conducted in English and there was no separate language discussion area such as the one you have for you have for French. Purely UK issues were out of place in the international forums.

I have no grasp of what arguments might be made for a distinct French national forum as opposed to a French language one but, if you feel you have a case, why not submit a Support Request.

Bear in mind that all forums need volunteer moderators.
