What are we going to do about duplicate language tags?

I’ve taken a look through the tags list, and I’ve noticed that a few languages have multiple tags (e.g. #español/#spanish or #deutsch/#german). This makes the tag system less useful.

It looks like Discourse has support for tag aliases, so I think that we should set those up as early as possible to avoid any more duplicates.

The one thing that we need to decide on is which format to use for language tags. The English-language tags are currently slightly more popular than their native-language counterparts, but either one will work.
