# Translation of keywords algorithm2e

I would like to use algorithm2e with translated keywords option (e.g. frenchkw), which should be working according to the documentation, but it doesn't do nothing for me.

\usepackage[vlined, lined, french, frenchkw]{algorithm2e}

\begin{algorithm}[H]
\KwData{this text}
\KwResult{how to write algorithm with \LaTeX2e }
initialization\;
\While{not at end of this document}{
\eIf{understand}{
go to next section\;
current section becomes this one\;
}{
go back to the beginning of current section\;
}
}
\caption{How to write algorithms}
\end{algorithm}


Result, notice how Algorithm caption is correctly translated, but keywords are not.

You have to specify that you'll be using only onelanguage for this to work:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[vlined, french, onelanguage]{algorithm2e}

\begin{document}

\begin{algorithm}[H]
\KwData{this text}
\KwResult{how to write algorithm with \LaTeX2e }
initialization\;
\While{not at end of this document}{
\eIf{understand}{
go to next section\;
current section becomes this one\;
}{
go back to the beginning of current section\;
}
}
\caption{How to write algorithms}
\end{algorithm}

\end{document}


While algorithm2e does provide options for the use of different languages, without onelanguage it requires the user to specify different inputs for these. So, instead of \KwData - an english/default definition - one would need use \Donnees - the french definition.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[vlined, french]{algorithm2e}

\begin{document}

\begin{algorithm}[H]
\Donnees{this text}
\Res{how to write algorithm with \LaTeX2e }
initialization\;
\Tq{not at end of this document}{
