Johanot Martorell - Tirant Lo Blanc - ca
Johanot Martorell - Tirant Lo Blanc - es
Johanot Martorell - Tirant Lo Blanc - en

It's shorter and I like it better to have ca or catala than to have Catalan.
You could get very close to the same thing with
Code:
{authors}/{authors} - {title} - {language}
Using tags for that is rather dangerous because tags are used for all sorts of things. If you want to maintain it yourself, you should use a custom column, probably "text with a fixed set of values".
