Hreflang Tag -

Use the hreflang tag, if you have multiple versions of the same website in different languages and you want geo-targeting.
For example:

< link rel="alternate" hreflang="en-US" href="https://www.example.com/us">
< link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr-fr" href="https://www.example.com/fr">

Canonical tag -
