The translation has been done excellently; only with regard to the French
"apprivoiser" I have still some doubts: compare
"On ne connaît que les choses que l’on apprivoise"
and
*kaś cit tān eva viṣayān avagacchati yān sa prīṇayati*.

("apprivoiser" is also difficult to translate into english etc.)

Best,
