Profiles work really well for this kind of thing. Just create a new profile for each object that needs a French label, in the object's property inspector, under the Profile section. Name the profile something obvious like "french". Make sure the new profile is selected in the inspector, then change the label property to the French label. Do this for each object that needs a French label. Then use the revSetStackProfile command to switch between the Master (default) profile and the French one for all objects in the stack that have the french profile:

revSetStackProfile "french" --switch 

To switch back use:

revSetStackProfile "Master"
