Hi Julian

It is because there is no macro referring to "Author" in the french.dm
file if the the '-buttonname Author' option is used in the classifier.
You can simply solve the problem by adding this macro into the french.dm
file.
In your case, to display "Author" in French, a macro below need to be
added into french.dm.
_labelAuthor_ [l=fr] {authorInFrench}
