Ok, the problem is, as far as I see, that you do not provide the
textdomain to use to the WP function __(). For example, you have the

__("Forum Locked")

but when you use the textdomain "simple-forum", it should read

__("Forum Locked", "simple-forum")

You mentioned that some words actually were translated, I assume they
are words that are contained in the global language file (e.g. "Posts").

By the way, in your beta, the filename is simple-forum-FR_fr.mo, while
it should read simple-forum-fr_FR.mo as this is the correct and usual
locale token. And, you should use the API hook "init" for loading the
textdomain, because this ensures that multilinguality plugins such as
Polyglot will choose the correct language.
