I got an error stating :

Warning: This document appears to be written in French but the html start tag has lang="en-gb". Consider using lang="fr" (or variant) instead.

However, when loading the page and Ctrl + U to view source, the page is indeed in French and the tag « lang » specifies « fr-fr ». This is to let you know of the error.

Probable source of error ? maybe because our website is english by default but the analyzed page is in the french folder https://mysite.com/fr/

Sincerely yours.
