This matter was a problem for me when I had a job interview in French
with a game developer in France: I was in doubt about the language to
use for technical terms.
I chose to say them in French to err on the safe side, but sometimes I
had trouble understanding when they used an English term in the middle
of a French sentence: I was so 'tuned' on French that I tried to decode
that sound as if it had been a French word... and failed miserably :-)
