The media query is mostly for the case that you have the same content, but different representation for the content under different settings. But in the case of language, the content needs to be changed anyway, and you can simply change the stylesheet referenced at the same time, e.g. for English users you serve
<html lang="en">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet-en.css">
<!-- English content -->
and for French users you serve
<html lang="fr">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet-fr.css">
<!-- French content -->

There is no extra bandwidth consumption, is it?
