Section 4.3.1 says:

        C> LANG fr
        S> 200 Le response sera changez au francais

        C> feat
        S> 211- <quelconque descriptif texte>
        S>  ...
        S>  LANG EN;FR*
        S>  ...
        S> 211 end

It should say:

        C> LANG fr
        S> 200 Les réponses seront en français

        C> feat
        S> 211- <texte descriptif quelconque>
        S>  ...
        S>  LANG EN;FR*
        S>  ...
        S> 211 end

Notes:

I'm natively speaking French, and the original text is not correct.
In particular, some words stayed in English, and word order is not the same in French.

The correction make the hypothesis that UTF-8 is allowed in reply messages, which is not specified in the RFC (see other errata).

Throughout the document, when it says:


Notes:

The RFC talks about UTF-8 for paths, but not about response messages.
The LANG command specified in the RFC can lead servers to send reply messages containing character outside of the ASCII character set.
It should specify that UTF-8 should also be used for reply messages.
--VERIFIER NOTES--

Section 4.1 says:

This specification RECOMMENDS that the server
default language be English encoded using ASCII. This text may be
augmented by text from other languages. Once negotiated, server-PI
MUST return server messages and textual part of command responses in
the negotiated language and encoded in UTF-8.
