I'm learning French.  I could try a translation with the help of a 
dictionary.  I'm still shaky on verb conjugation and such, but I might 
still be better than Google Translate.  In any case. I could at least vet 
the output from Google Translate;  I may not be able to improve it, but I 
won't make it worse.

But I really think enough of the gnucash-fr readers understand enough 
English to figure out that you're looking for a moderator, and you won't 
really need a translator.  In Europe it's usual for the school system to 
teach multiple languages.  You could even ask if one of the readers on 
gnucash-fr would translate your English message.  They'd probably do a 
better job than I.
