How to tell the time in French

Where it says treize heures moins cinq, just above Jargon Busters, should that translate as 2:55 rather than 0:55?

This relates to:

Bonjour Catherine !

Indeed, "treize heures moins cinq" actually means "12:55", so thanks for pointing it out to us! We actually changed to "vingt heures moins cinq" to highlight the difference between 7:55 and 19:55 !
Merci!
