Azure Translator sometimes changes units from miles to kilometers

Hey folks, just reporting a couple related translation bugs in the Azure Translator service. It's reproducible on Bing Translate as well.

If you translate EN "7.5 miles away" to FR, the translation will change the word "miles" to "kilometers". This issue seems to only affect the FR translation. Other languages such as spanish, german, etc translate to a word that means miles as expected.

Similarly, the translation of "100 miles" to HT results in "100 kilomèt". Translations to other languages preserve "miles" as expected.

Here's a screenshot of the FR issue on bing.

Thanks for the help!
