The difference in the shift parameters offered by Circe2000 and my column
on Spain are likely the difference between the transformation parameters
between France and Spain.
You may get better correspondence with EU50 coordinates in Spain if you use
those parameters published for Spain.
I thought you said that you are in Spain ... ?
Happy Mardi Gras!

Thank you very much, I finally find the offset in Circe2000 (the
software I mentionned above):
dx = -84 m
dy = -97 m
dz = -117 m
I put it here for interrested people.
