[Mediawiki-i18n] Specifying source language for a translatable page

I am trying out MediaWiki 1.22.5 / XAMPP with Apache 2.4.7, MySQL
5.5.36, PHP 5.4.25 as a single site supporting multiple languages on my PC.
I have problem using the Translate Extension (in
MediaWikiLanguageExtensionBundle-2014.03) to translate a page from a
native language say French to English.
It seems MW defaults the source language of the page to the site
language which is defined as English in this case: $wgLanguageCode = "en";
While I can translate a page in French into other languages like
Chinese, I cannot translate it into English, as the generated link
for English in Other Languages actually displays the original French page.
I tried naming the page with /fr suffix but it does not work.
Please see these links as examples:
My question is: is there a way to specify the source language for a
translatable page when it differs from the site language?
I asked this question on the MediaWiki Support Desk and in IRC
#mediawiki last night but got no answer yet. I'm not sure if this
should be directed to this list or not. Please refer me to the
appropriate place if not.
