In my thesis I have french resume part, but main text is in English. I need to have in the resume French tables naming (Tableau) in table captions and in the main part instead of Tableau the English version Table. My idea does not work:

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[english,frenchb]{babel}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\begin{document}
    \selectlanguage{french}

    \begin{table}[!h]
        \caption{First}

        \begin{tabular}{|c|c|}
            \hline  1& 1 \\ 
            \hline 1 &1  \\ 
            \hline 
        \end{tabular} 
    \end{table}
\selectlanguage{english}
    \begin{table}[!h]
        \caption{Second}

        \begin{tabular}{|c|c|}
            \hline  1& 1 \\ 
            \hline 1 &1  \\ 
            \hline 
        \end{tabular} 
    \end{table} 
\end{document}

What is the way to solve the problem?

    As you included the package fonstspec I assume you compile with Xelatex or LuaLatex? In that case you should use polyglossia instead of babel. – JBantje Dec 1 '14 at 20:21

Localize the change to within the floating environment while also specifying the change to \tablename:

enter image description here

\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]
  \selectlanguage{english}
  \caption{Second}
\end{table} 
\end{document}
