Discussion on: Should a button communicate the current state, the intended behavior, or both?

I have to agree for this case. I think "switch to FR" would be much better.
The way shown basically shows the opposite state - neither an action, nor the current state... 😅

It's quite common on web sites, though. Sometimes you'll see "English" or "Français" instead of just the first two letters. Sites that support more than two languages will usually have a dropdown to pick your preferred language, usually showing the currently selected language. Can't say I've ever had any problem with either approach.
