I am not sure what you mean- but I have two options for you - let me
know what you think;

1. Greenstone has a search iterface in many languages including french
- The interface can be set to default to whatever language you like.
(See the Maori Newspapers Collection at http://www.nzdl.org/ for an
example.

2. You can use the metadata editor to make metadata sets of your own.
If dublin Core (or the others which are all in english) is not
suitable then you can either use a french metadata set or make a new
metadata set with the metadata editor tool.

Maybe DC in french to to make it easier to use? I found this
translation: http://www-rocq.inria.fr/~vercoust/METADATA/DC-fr.1.1.html
I don't know how good it is.
