See http://www.horde.org/horde/docs/?f=TRANSLATIONS.html

and also


Try the debugging steps there for debian.

Sounds good.  See the above links for the information on locales in
debian, and the debugging of problems with locales.

You need to verify they are working correctly.

Then you should see French by default, if the server is working correctly.

I don't use Debian, so I can't comment on that.

If your browser is set to French, and your Horde language is set to
French, it should work...

The help text is actually in French.  The rest of the stuff is translated
via gettext().  So this is consistent with a broken gettext()/locale
on the server.

Try what is on the above web links...
