Hello all,

Is that what the <language> subelement is for?

Here is an example from that page:

<eadheader langencoding="iso639-2b">

            <langusage>Bilingual finding aid written in
            *<language langcode="fre">*French*</language>* and
            *<language langcode="eng">*English.*</language>*


All the best,

Creighton Barrett
