The language setting in the Adwords allows you to target the customers who speak a certain language and the language of the sites that you'd like your ads to appear on. It has nothing to do with the language of your ads, so your ads' language should match your language targeting setting in order that your customers can understand it.

For instance, if you choose your language targeting as French, your ads will show for people who speak French. Therefore your ads need to be written in French.

Google doesn't translate ads or keywords. Your ads are displayed in the language they are written in.
