how GSA knows that a website use french language ? Does it just check :
<html lang="fr"
Content-Language: fr-FR ?
Does the soft extract some sentences and use an API language detector ?

Than you :')

    It detects language by many signs...
    1. lang tag
    2. domain name->tld->language
    3. ip location -> country->language
    4. encoding (e.g. special unicode signs only used in special languages)
    5. special words only used on certain languages
