'.pl' files are perl files.

You don't localize emacs from emacs lisp, because a lot of strings are
used and referenced from C code.

You have to do it from the source distribution of emacs, apparently, by
putting this file in some specific place in the sources
directory, and then compiling emacs will run this script and add the
French strings.  I don't know the details, but do read the comment in and perhaps some further documentation in the place where
you found it.
