I've learned C++ by reading a French book when I was far from reading fluently English too :)
Then I learned more by reading manuals/snippets/... (written in English).

But one of my friends learned C++ in French, and (when he was student) he never learned the English words for some technical words.
To talk about programming with him was a bit confusing at first (now he knows technical words in English too :)).

So I'm not sure if learning programming concepts in French (with only French words) is a really good idea, but it's still better than not to be able to learn those programming concepts at all ;)

Following this idea, there should be no French edition of programming books at all, except 
perhaps for (Visual) Basic and PHP... :-)

When I was a young student (now, I am an old, self-taught student... :-)), I was glad to 
find French books about programming: I was far from reading fluently English as I do now.
I improved by reading thousands of pages of AD&D rules... ;-)
