Steps to reproduce:

I have been to these pages:

Actual results:

There is no "Languages" menu on these pages. They are not linked to the original English version.

Expected results:

They should be linked to the original English version.
I tried to update them, but I wasn't able to do so with the UI we have. I got an Internal Server Error.

We need this fixed as soon as possible.
Priority: -- → P1
See also bug 802041. Not quite a dupe but we might fix both at the same time.
Oddly enough, I *believe* this should have been fixed with this:

We'll have to see why "show_translation_parent_block" isn't always displaying.

If it can help, I did a crawl to see "where" the issue could be : (this is only valid for detecting if there is a missing link fr->en-US among fr pages)
Created attachment 760550 [details]
Translate Page Parent
The attachment above shows how to set the translation parent; this is a documentation issue, no new feature should be needed.
Like Luke says, this is *kind of* a dupe of 802041; will see what I can do.

Thanks Ethertank, that is great. <b> and <datalist> are now fine.

You are right, the English article for <a>, links to a wrong French URL. It sends users to
They are then redirected to

Yes, there is the "Set translation source" interface on the French article. But as the English article is linked to a wrong French URL, we can't set the source. We get a server error instead.
I've fixed the translation source(s) for fr/docs/Web/HTML/Element and fr/docs/Web/HTML/Element/a
