In my SP2013 environment, I have 2 variations, en-US, and fr-FR. I found an issue where now when I am on the French pages, the currentCultureName is showing en-US for all sites. Language code is 1033. How can this be corrected?

Figured it out. The _spPageContextInfo.currentLanguage and currentCultureName is based on what preference is saved on the user's profile settings. The region/locale field specifically. It is not based on which label the current site is on. Best way to detect language is check the URL directly.
