When iOS device language is set to French and Voiceover is switched on, when a user is accessing a picker, the Voiceover says (in French) to "swipe left or right to adjust" whereas it should be "swipe up or down to adjust".

Steps to Reproduce:
1. iOS Settings > General > Accessibility > VoiceOver > switch ON
2. General > Language & Region > iPhone Language > select "Francais / French" and then select "Change to French".
3. Go to Home screen and open "Horloge" app ("Clock")
4. Select "Minuteur" tab ("Timer")
5. Swipe right to highlight either the hour, minute or second picker.
6. Listen to the Voiceover for the highlighted picker.

Expected Results:
The instructions for using the picker should say (in French) "Swipe up or down to adjust"

Actual Results:
The instructions for using the picker says (in French) "Swipe left or right to adjust"
