Hreflang tags are a technical solution for sites that have similar content in multiple languages. A site owner wants search engines to point people to the most “fitting” language. Say a user is Dutch, the page that ranks is English, but there's also a Dutch version.

The hreflang attribute (also referred to as rel="alternate" hreflang="x" ) tells Google which language you are using on a specific page, so the search engine can serve that result to users searching in that language.
