Filter Search Results by Language

In most databases, there is a filter you can select to narrow your results by the language of a source. Note that this may not mean the entire article or source is written or spoken in that language; sometimes it means that sections, quotes, excerpts, etc. are in that filtered language, while the rest of the source is in another language.
