French to English révolu

Dictionary entry: révolu

    Divakar proposes a translation of the English example given in the definition :
    révolu adj(dépassé, atteint) (age)over adv
    (time elapsed)pass vtr
    Il faut avoir 18 ans révolus pour pouvoir voter.
    You need to be over 18 to vote.
    I'll give you my answer when six months have passed.

    His proposal is, indeed, a bit clumsy (no offense). I can't do better, though, as I don't see an elegant translation of this sentence using "révolu", my translation would be "... lorsque six mois se seront écoulés". So, it has little to do with "révolu", therefore I would propose that you get rid of this English example.
