Is also a good idea to load "lmodern", so you can have accented characters in vectorial fonts. I load inputenc, fontenc, lmodern and babel, in that order. There are packages with conflicts with babel and even utf8, but that's not the case here (example "soul", pour souligner).

there are two distinct problems here: input encoding, which may be solved with \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} and babel. The caption package is an outsider, it's just telling you to load it after babel so it knows in which language it should put the labels (like 'tableau 1.' instead of 'table 1.' etc).

One solution is to use XeTeX (or similar), which allows direct use of unicode and system fonts. The example below uses Times New Roman for the main font, and specifies two others for the Chinese and Hebrew (WenQuanYi Micro Hei and Cardo, respectively). You can change the fonts to the appropriate type faces on your system. Unfortunately, I have stopped using ...

Localize the change to within the floating environment while also specifying the change to \tablename: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[english,frenchb]{babel} \addto\captionsfrench{\def\tablename{Tableau}} \usepackage{fontspec} \begin{document} \begin{table}[!h] \selectlanguage{french} \caption{First} \end{table} \begin{table}[!h] ...
