Downloading is not French

Downloading, uploading? Non, Monsieur! This is what some word-coining committee came up with a few years ago to help France's IT users keep their speech pure from these two vile Anglo-American words:

downloading = téléchargement à partir d'un autre ordinateur

uploading = téléchargement vers un autre ordinateur

Paid for by the French taxpayer's money, but don't expect the French to realize the problem, theirs are first-class national blinkers, courtesy of a totalitarian school system the Anglo-American leftists are so fond of.
