BB Press and WordPress Question

I know BB Press is not WPMU so if I am not allowed to ask this question please let me know.

I want to create a BB Press set of forums but I am at a loss to where to find the best support information. I was hoping someone here has used BB press and can point me in the right direction.

Not only am I interested in setting up a forum for the whole community but I was hoping to take the master theme and use it on the message board site. The other drawback is I need a message board that is french. Now, I am not french so it would be great to have the backend english and the front end french.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!
Helen
