"French" is very wide, and includes not only the language but rather, depending on the university curriculum, everything from French History, Politics, Media, Philosophy and Film Studies.
Translation is more specific. You would be dealing with texts in a vary of contexts (newspaper articles, instructions, possibly legal contracts etc) and would be translating them from French into English and vice-versa.
Translation is better if a) you want to work as a translator, in which case a translation degree would be more relevant and help you stand out to employers or b) you dislike literature/history etc and wish to avoid those modules.
