missing translation for French: "bytes" for file size should be "octets"

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Files of a size inferior to 1 KiB (1 Kio in the French translation) show size in bytes, which is correct, but in French, the translation for "bytes" is missing: the label should read "octets" instead.

See attached screenshot.

Taken from <http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte>:
"On peut donc considérer qu'une documentation en français qui exprime la capacité de mémoire en bytes a été mal traduite. Toutefois, en anglais comme en français, si l'on veut explicitement désigner une quantité de huit bits, on utilise le mot octet ; tandis que si l'on veut exprimer l'unité d'adressage indépendamment du nombre de bits, on utilise le mot byte."

Ubuntu Translations bugtracker cleanup. Sorry for the spam.

This bug was marked as Fix Committed a long time ago, and it must be safe to presume that the fix is released in a recent release of Ubuntu. If it is not, please open another bug.
