Title Attribute speaking Right Language in Wrong accent, but the rest of the page is fine

Hi all,
I'm testing a page with English and French versions with a screen reader. JAWS with NVDA, IE, Firefox and Chrome. Some of the links have title attributes for additional information. Though these are written in French, and the page itself has a French language attribute so is read in French properly, the title attributes are read with an English accent. Do title attributes require their own language attributes too, even if the page as a whole has the correct one?

Any help you can provide is much appreciated.
