Hi !

I've completed the portal translation status page to add menu names in french but doing so I realized that I added every pages in the table no matter if they were "menu pages" or not...
I didn't want to erase every non-menu pages so I put every menu page title in bolt and the others in italic just to easily distinguish page types.
I added a column "title in french" instead of overwriting titles in english. Sorry for disturbing the whole homogeneity of this wiki page but IMO translation is easier to manage this way (until I find an other brand new way !!).
So if *someone* has a little time, there are some translations to make !

Hi Tyler,

The library is a little bit different because all items which are shown 
only in French are written in French ;). So I don't think they have to 
be shown in the English one...
