Rfv-sense: installer--A person who installs.

Entered by a French native speaker. I cannot find this sense in OneLook dictionaries. Searches in Google book seem dominated by the software sense: A program that installs software and prepares it for use. Also, what are the sorts of things that an installer (person) installs? In Czech, there is the word "instalatér", which is a person who deals with plumbing, with electrical wiring, or possibly other things; the Czech word possibly stems from French installateur. --Dan Polansky 14:05, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Easy enough: try Google Books "kitchen installer", I doubt that a computer program can install a kitchen. Mglovesfun (talk) 14:07, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
I think we can pass this as clearly widespread use. Do we have a second?​—msh210 (talk) 16:13, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
In my opinion, yes we can. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:58, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
