I have this :



\begin{tikzpicture} % optional
   \begin{ganttchart}[x unit=2.2mm, 
                      y unit chart=1.2cm, 
                      time slot format=isodate, 
   \gantttitlecalendar{month=name} \\      



I can't mange to print the month names in French. Normally I have just to load translator package with the frenchb option (look at this answer). This package is already loaded by beamer so I tried \PassOptionsToPackage{frenchb}{translator} but it's not working. How can I fix that?

\PassOptionsToPackage has to be used before the package is loaded:


Or frenchb can be given as global option:

Was just writing the same, but I'd use just french :-) – Joseph Wright Jun 9 '14 at 9:21
Thanks I didn't know that I can put commands before \documentclass! – Hunsu Jun 9 '14 at 9:27
