#5204: i18n: FR / Error message translation mistake in /account

 In the account page
 (https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/someusername/account ), when changing
 your display name, if the wished display name is not available, an error
 message  will appear.

 In English it should be "Display name not available" which has been
 translated by "Affichage du nom non disponible" which is a bad translation
 because it means "Displaying this name is not doable".

 I would recommend: "Pseudonyme non disponible".


 How to reproduce:
 1 Invite some french speaking friend,
 2 open a bottle of red wine,
 3 ask your french speaking friend to connect on osm with his french
 4 ask him to change his display name to some unavailable one
 5 discuss about subtlety and refinement of french language while drinking
 the red wine.
