We have a tag which has the following guidance:

Questions related to the language support provided by Ubuntu.

We also have a tag which has the following guidance:

Questions that relate to the use of different languages in Ubuntu

  • @andrew.46 I don't see this post getting any more feedback, nor is someone against acting on the tags. So I guess we can go forward with muru's suggestion (which is logical and has the same number of upvotes as this post) and make the language tag a synonym of language-support.

A small community consensus but nevertheless a consensus. So:

  1. I have merged into
