Delta words for going forward/backward in time

The following words may be used to specify deltas that refer to dates in the past or future respectively:

Business mode
This contains two lists of words which can be used to specify a standard (i.e. non-business) delta or a business delta.

The following words may be used:

   approximativement
   environ
    
 
The following words may be used to specify a business delta:

Ignored words
In writing out dates in common forms, there are a number of words that are typically not important.
 
There is frequently a word that appears in a phrase to designate that a time is going to be specified next. In English, you would use the word AT in the example:
 
   December 3 at 12:00
    
 
The following words may be used:
 
   a
   à
    
 
Another word is used to designate one member of a set. In English, you would use the words IN or OF:
 
   1st day OF December
   1st day IN December
    
 
The following words may be used:
 
   de
   en
   du
    
 
Another word is use to specify that something is on a certain date. In English, you would use ON:
 
   ON July 5th
    
 
The following words may be used:
 
   sur
    
Words that set the date, time, or both
There are some words that can be used to specify a date, a time, or both relative to now.
 
Words that set the date are similar to the English words 'yesterday' or 'tomorrow'. These are specified as a delta which is added to the current time to get a date. The time is NOT set however, so the delta is only partially used (it should only include year, month, week, and day fields).
 
The following words may be used:
 
   aujourd'hui          0:0:0:0:0:0:0
   aujourd’hui          0:0:0:0:0:0:0
   demain               +0:0:0:1:0:0:0
   hier                 -0:0:0:1:0:0:0
    
 
Words that set only the time of day are similar to the English words 'noon' or 'midnight'.
 
The following words may be used:
 
   midi                 12:00:00
   minuit               00:00:00
    
 
Words that set the entire time and date (relative to the current time and date) are also available.
 
In English, the word 'now' is one of these.
 
The following words may be used:
 
   maintenant           0:0:0:0:0:0:0
    
Hour/Minute/Second separators
When specifying the time of day, the most common separator is a colon (:) which can be used for both separators.
 
Some languages use different pairs. For example, French allows you to specify the time as 13h30:20, so it would use the following pairs:
 
   : :
   h :
    
 
The first column is the hour-minute separator and the second column is the minute-second separator. Both are perl regular expressions. When creating a new translation, be aware that regular expressions with utf-8 characters may be tricky. For example, don't include the expression '[x]' where 'x' is a utf-8 character.
 
A pair of colons is ALWAY allowed for all languages. If a language allows additional pairs, they are listed here:
 
   h  :
    
Fractional second separator
When specifying fractional seconds, the most common way is to use a decimal point (.). Some languages may specify a different separator that might be used. If this is done, it is a regular expression.
 
The decimal point is ALWAYS allowed for all languages. If a language allows another separator, it is listed here:
 
   Not defined in this language
