Sendy in foreign language

I have Sendy running fine on a Debian box and served by Nginx. I have
installed French language files to enable Sendy to operate in French.
works perfectly under Apache on my local computer but not on the
site with Nginx. Sendy uses gettext so this should be fairly standard to
working. The Sendy forum has some suggestions on getting translations to
work and I have followed these without success. I’ve had a discussion
Ben on this forum which is online here:

I don’t want to be forced to use Apache as Ben suggests. So I’d be
grateful if anyone can see how to get this working on Nginx.

Here is my server configuration which I downloaded via the Sendy forum:

Server {
listen 80;
listen [::]:80;


autoindex off;
index index.php index.html;
