Mhh.. I can't seem to find a good reference on this.
I will try to ask to some haitian developers.

Well, no, Kreyol is a language on its own. It's derived from many
language (among them are french, english, spanish) and there are
actually several kreyol variants (Haïti, Jamaïc, etc...)
The Pootle has a single Kreyol instance, that's why I expected
someone had already tested it on a XO.
Thanks anyway for the pointers, I will keep you posted on this.
