My recently-purchased SATA disk says "1 TB/To" and "32 MB Cache/Mo Cachette" on the retail box, so my assumption is yes, this is French. Plus, the line Guarantie limitée de 5 ans would seem to confirm this.
I don't know French, but I can recognize it in written/printed text. Yes, this is a late-model Seagate consumer drive. :-)

It's French: 'octet'. (You often see this in older standards documents,
too, which have to be clear about the number of bits in a byte.)
