No, there is currently no patch available that I know of. About a year or
so ago, someone sent a patch for a much older version, that changed the
English keywords to French (i.e. changed one hard-coded set to another).
I don't know how thorough a job this patch did.

What's really needed is an attribute that lets you specify all the boolean
keywords, and htsearch should use these for both input and output. This,
and the boolean syntax error messages are the last remaining pieces of
htsearch that haven't been internationalized yet.
