neutral  Melissa McMahon: I think it needs to be in inverted commas and glossed as it is a specifically French legal status and the direct translation doesn't really indicate what it means/Yes, based on category, I am assuming this is legal doc rather than news article.
8 hrs
  -> I think it depends very much on the context of the document being translated, e.g. the target readership.

agree  Garoubet: I agree with the translation, and I agree with Melissa's comment.

  -> Thanks Garoubet. I still think it depends on the target readership, as it might be safe to assume that the reader would understand what this status meant under French law.
