I obviously found the file responsible of displaying the contact form with FireBug, changed the displayed names in the input area and then re-upload my file, however, nothing was changed.

The input value of the first area was your name, i changed it to votre nom, but still displying me your name. You can check it in this url, you can use FireBug to check this. Here is a sceenshot, and I'm use the Boldy theme:

It is because you are overidding your values in custom.js:

$('#quickName').val('your name');
$('#quickEmail').val('your email');
$('#quickComment').val('your message');

Remove these lines and you should be good to go.
