Very true. I face the same issue when translating into Spanish. It's
hard to come to a similar number of chars when going from English to
Spanish or French.

A good option is to better document the tooltips (the strings / helpers
that are shown in the fields when we place the mouse or focus on top of
the field). There, there is no limit and it does not affect the screen

Sure, the bigger the translators team, the better the quality and end
result ! 

Thanks a lot for your help.
