Description Leslie Satenstein 2015-08-17 16:23:31 EDT
Description of problem:

fermer la session 

should be

terminer la session

In French there is a distinction between close, end and terminate. 

We  close a door (something physical)


we  end a session.   (something logical)

Top right corner with drop down menu for logging out of Gnome/Fedora 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fedora 22, 23  

Gnome 3.16

How reproducible:

click to log out.

Click on the user Icon/Logon name

Changer d'utilisateur is correct 
Fermer la session is poor French.

it should be

terminer la session
