The English Language(s???)

Dear Network,
I need your help in regard to the #englishlanguage (languages???).

In France we had to stay at home for 2 months due to #COVID19. This was called #confinement””.
In my post and in my contact with my foreign friends and clients, I used the word “confinement (in English)” to speak of the “confinement (in French)”.
However, it would appear that the correct word is #lockdown””. At least in #british English.
When I look at Google translate, both words seem to apply.
Here is my question :
What word should I use?
And should I change word when I speak to my #irish#australian or #american friends and clients?

Any advises would be most appreciated.
