automatic language tag generation

I have a library with books in three different languages (English, German and Dutch). It would be handy to have a tag connected to each book containing the language information (eg 'English').

Does anybody know if this functionality already exists ?
Or does a plugin exists which can identify books written in the English language ?

If not anybody an idea how to approach this ?

Thanks !

Calibre Metadata already has a field for Languages (this is also used by language specific Sorting Rules)
The Column may just be hidden. (Right click on any column head: Show: Languages)

You can easily select books by Language in the Tag Browser
