How to set "French" (or whatever) as the main language

Sorry to post this if this was already explained a hundred times, but I haven't found it yet...

Ok, I've edited my profile and set my user preferences to french.
But assuming I want to create a mono-lingual site (let's say for french speakers only), is there a way to translate a fresh silverstripe install into french?

For instance, I don't know how to get rid of the "Go to xxx" in the title attribute of all my <a> links.
Where can I change these settings?
Are there good practices for doing that? (maybe i want to add another language at a certain stage, etc.)

Thank you advance for your answers or links

You need to change the title attribute in your Template Files. If you just want a mono-lingual site you you just have to write french content and adjust your templates to it.

Thx a lot for your answer.
I've thought the "go to" in the title attribute was also added even for the user edited content... But I did not test it before... Mea maxima culpla!
Now it makes sense.
