After a full day of searching, I can't find a way to make the multilingual to work on my site.
I want to create a temporary site to host privacy policies in many different languages (6) but with the skin of our corporate site which is only in English and French. In fact we could have created those pages in the corporate site but we don't want to translate the site in all those languages for now.
I created a new folder to host my new site in multisite mode. I also copy pasted many modules and a theme that was made (by an external firm and where the multilingual works) in my new site's folder to customize/handle them seperatly.
I tried to match all the modules of the original site with my new sites.
I didn't work... All my aliases answers with a
"The requested page "/fr/myalias" could not be found.".
Only the English aliases seems to work.
I followed the solutions found on these web site. Nothing worked.

At the beginning I though that it was the path alias that wasn't working but after a few hours I realized that the site never quit the English language (default).
I added 5 more languages (fr, nl, es, pt, de).
For a start, I just don't know why/how to change the language. I try calling "/fr" but that also answers with
"The requested page "/fr"
could not be found."
Edit: also I realize that all the (working) pages are called with "/?q=node/somthing" instead of "/node/something"... if that helps...
