Setting language for Open Data portal

Does anyone know if it's possible to set the language for an Open Data portal? I have an English site built, but also require a second site in French. I don't want to rely on the browser language settings to do this.


In a webapp builder app, you can add "?locale=fr" in the URL and all the widget text as well as the surrounding text will display French. examples: 


I was hoping the same would be true for the Open Data app, but I can't get it to work. See attached image showing my french portal, but all the surround text is English (View, Filter By, etc.)


I know someone submitted an idea to add a language option in the portal template (which I voted for!), which is great. but i need to figure out something in the meantime that will translate the surround text, without relying on the browser language settings.


any ideas??
