I can not have that type of behavior going on in my turbo lifts. To distracting for the crew.

Whatever happened to France, it was fairly recent, very late 23rd Century or first half of the 24th. It was still a contemporary language in Enterprise, and there was a French-speaking colony in TOS.

I remember a scene in the german version of one the first episodes of Enterprise Captain Archer tells some alien that humanity actually speaks german. There you have it.
