    Hi everybody,

    I'm translating a website about software for handicapped people and this software has two modes: an edit mode for the parents or social workers that have to adjust settings and such, and a user mode for the handicapped user, so they can't change the settings accidentally. How do I translate these two terms: edit mode and user mode?

    Thanks a million,
    Tabernarius

    oui, c'est la traduction littérale... mais ici dans le contexte c'est plutôt l'idée de paramétrer des options, en étant loggué avec des droits spécifiques par rapport à l'utilisateur final.

    C'est la traduction française retenue par la plateforme Moodle, par exemple.
