this is my english script:
<li><a href="http://www.actuaries.ca/meetings/sponsorship/2011_Sponsorship_Program_e.pdf" target="_blank">Sponsorship Program 2011</a></li>
<li><a href="https://twitter.com/CIA_Actuaries" class="twitter-follow-button" data-show-count="false" data-lang="en">Follow @CIA_Actuaries</a>
<script>!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");</script></li></ul>

I got this from Twitter's development page:

Language

The Follow Button is available in English (en), French (fr), German (de), Italian (it), Spanish (es), Korean (ko) and Japanese (ja). To specify the language for the Follow Button, use the lang property and set it to the two letter ISO-639-1 language code.

Javascript Code Example with language set to French:

<a href="https://twitter.com/twitterapi" class="twitter-follow-button" data-lang="fr">Follow @twitterapi</a>
<script>!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");</script>

I believe there's nothing you can do about that on your end. Twitter has it like that.
