[[Image: shows images on every language, as it is the original english 
namespace name. Plus, the translation set at $namespaceNames[NS_IMAGE] 
also shows them, as well as being the official image namespace name.
As the French translation sets (languages/messages/MessagesFr.php) 
$namespaceNames[NS_IMAGE] = 'Image', that was the only name you could 
use in your wiki.

You can have the site on multiple languages. Just use the proper name 
for including images.

Not really, follow the link i gave you

The title has letters (É é) utf8 encoded (É é) and those chars encoded 
utf8 another time (É é).
Due to the way MediaWiki stores the utf8 in binary latin1 schemas, it's 
not strange to have mysqldump corrupting the text by doing encodings "by 
their own".

You probably need to apply a utf8 decoding to the page titles to have 
them right before you start creating pages with only a utf8 layer.
