How to configure a mod_rewrite for CMSMS?

I'm using a CMS (CMSMS) that formats the links with the following structure when configured for mod_rewrite :
http://domain.tld/parent/content

This parent/content URL scheme is automatic and cannot be deactivated.

I've modified the CMS to take a language parameter into account, so now the URLs look like this :
http://domain.tld/langage/parent/content

What rewrite_rule should I use, knowing that when not using mod_rewrite, my CMS accepts these two arguments only :
index.php?hl=language&page=content

How does your current rewriteRule look like?

Basically it should look like
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/parent/(.*) /index.php?hl=$1&page=$2 [L]

Note that in CMSMS, the parent/content portion of the URL is automatically generated by parsing the page order and checking a page's parent.
When not using mod_rewrite, the parent/content mode is not used, only the content is being passed as an argument.

These are my current rewriteRules :
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d [NC]
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/(.*)$ index.php?page=$2&hl=$1 [QSA]

I found a solution to my problem.  It appears that the rewriteBase was not set in my .htaccess; thus redirecting URLs to the wrong directory.  The above RewriteRule is therefore correct and works very well.
