Most "normal" pages should translate perfectly fine.  I guess the  
event items are the only problem?   This is a custom type of content  
we have, we will have to look into how to enable translations for  
them if they are not working.  Likewise, with http://osgeo.org/ 
library - some items only show up in French but are not shown in  
English... this is tough, I believe it is the same problem.

Definitely - this is something I meant to do but haven't done.   
Please add the titles you would like to see into the table here:  
http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/Portal_Translation_Status (like done  
in the Deutsch section).  Then when someone has time to edit the  
menus it can be changed.
