Sometimes, users are directed to the 404 page while switching the storefront. That usually happens because of the absence of the alternate hreflang tags on each of those pages to direct readers to the other. In case you want two or more Magento 2 categories pages in different languages to be interconnected you can install the Magento 2 Alternate Hreflang extension.
