AFAIK English is the default language for all KDevelop projects and,
according to the philosophy of KDE internationalization each project
should come at least with English documentation. To add a French
translation it should be usually enough to create a "fr" directory
inside the docs dir and place the French stuff in there - but I may
miss something at this point. Maybe one of the translation gurus can
give reliable information concerning this topic.

When you create the translation file with kbabel, you have to save it in
UTF-8 format. Kbabel's output file format can be configured somewhere inside
the Kbabel settings. I had the same problem with German "Umlauts" and
saving the .po file in UTF-8 solved the problem.
