[Translators-l] Major changes to the Save button: please translate a message for me

French done (including the news page).

Note: I fixed the code of this news page to use "bdi" tags within the
hidden tvars for button labels, because the news page displays a translated
language which is not necessarily the same as the user language used to
render the button labels (this causes issues notably for the surrounding
punctuations if these languages are not using the same direction: the page
in English could be read while the user's language would be Arabic... or
the reverse). I've checked the few existing translations of this page to
make sure they were consistant.

The links to the two important button labels to translate, are also now
made bolder (it should be evident where to go to translate these buttons,
without having to look for the labels in the thousands of translations for
MediaWiki using searches in a long list). At first I was wondering where to
go to translate these two buttons. Now with the help page, it is clear
(even if translators on translatewiki.net don't read it completely and
don't care really about this news page).

>> Please translate this message:

>> This message describes a significant change to the most important button
>> on any wiki:  the "Save page" button will soon be split into two labels:
>>  "Publish page" (for new page creations) and "Publish changes" (for edits
>> to existing pages).
>> There are also links in the message for the button labels.  Please check
>> those translations and make sure that they are accurate.  Those
>> translations will be used by default at all MediaWiki installations (not
>> just Wikipedia and its sister projects), so precise, accurate translations
>> are important.
>> Experienced editors don't need to read the button's label to know what it
>> does, but user research over the years strongly supports this change for
>> new contributors.  This change will be important to people who teach new
>> editors or who maintain help documentation.
>> I hope to send this message to more than 600 WMF wikis, in more than 200
>> languages, at the end of this week.  Every language is important for this
>> change.  Please help me if you can.
>> Thank you.
