I have a collection of English Bibles which I use for my broadest Text Comparison. However, Latin doesn't match English very well ... so why are Latin transcriptions given the language of English? Yes, I know I can subtract it out but sometimes I just want things to work so I can get on with my work.

(type:Bible ANDNOT type:"Bible Notes") should be unnecessary; just use "type:Bible". (If you do find a difference, please let us know.)

Agreed, but that won't remove the ones with the wrong language metadata:

These don't look like they belong in an English Bible collection.

Agreed. It's a habit I've developed from the way I use mytags ... but it is misleading to use such sloppiness on the forums.

Report it via the metadata correction wiki.

Some of these resources marked as English Bibles are wrong. Hopefully as they are recycled they will be fixed, but the process is not without cost. Setting resources as English is default setting. This means, in the case of a text with Latin, the Latin is contained within tags and the English isn't marked. Reversing this is tricky.

Then it would be a miracle for a Greek-English lexicon to be tagged English!? OR it's a race between multiple non-English language tags...
