category chinese -> meta

The tag is used for the language the comic is in, rather than referring to Chinese objects in the comic.

English isn't in meta either.
If you can make a list of all the "translated" languages currently available here I will edit the request to include them.

Note: I did the Ethnologue list (which lists all languages with at least 10m speakers) and used post #33056 for the rest, so I might be missing a few obscure languages.

Should we alias mandarin to chinese, since Mandarin is a dialect of the umbrella language Chinese? We don't have tags for the other dialects, anyway.

No, mandarin is the fruit (topic #11269). There is a "mandarin orange" tag, but it should be unified with "mandarin".
I'm aware that technically Wikipedia lists it as "mandarin orange", but its name is still "mandarin".
If you don't like it, think of it as how Danbooru has "microwave" instead of "microwave_oven" (topic #11312), even if I still believe that Danbooru is wrong.
Mandarin-the-language should be tagged either "mandarin_(language)" or "mandarin_(chinese)", at which point we can implicate "chinese" and put it under meta; so if anyone with free time could go through all the pics tagged mandarin and tag appropriately, that would be great.

I will tag mandarin-the-fruit with mandarin, then, and delete the mandarin_orange tag.

For now, I will tag posts that previously had the mandarin-the-language tag to mandarin_(chinese).

This discussion certainly warrants more discussion: all Chinese dialects use the same writing system, and the only difference is in the way they are pronounced, meaning that Mandarin is not (for our purposes) distinguishable from other Chinese dialects. Should we tag mandarin-the-language as simply chinese?

The mandarin_(chinese) tag is only used by pool #27, anyway; all the other Chinese images use the chinese tag.

I think where appliable they should be differentiated.
Think of it as an aide for translators.

Alright, so I'll change pool #27 to just chinese.

Well, I guess that works too, event if it's not what I had in mind.

That said, can you guarantee that the list of languages you posted earlier is the full list of all the non-english languages currently tagged on the site?

Practically? No.

Mutur Zikin has written quite a comprehensive list of languages, but it would take me tremendous time to manually search all of them, not to include the various spelling differences (e.g. the Taana language is spelt Taana in the list but thaana here) and dialects, to the point where going through all the tags or posts would be quicker.

Uhh right I kept forgetting.
If anyone wants to resubmit it, feel free to.
