The Windows version of NewViews currently does not support the Universal Coded Character Set or Unicode. This character set will be implemented in a future release of NV2 which will allow all accented characters.
Yes, the NV2 manual is in English but you may be able to convert the manual to French using online utilities. The F1 key for Help will always display the English manual.
The English version of Excel is currently supported and perhaps in time NV2 will support the French version of Excel.
