Rather than nearly text found elsewhere in the Guidelines, I would just 
insert this:


The textLang  element may be used to record information about the 
languages used within a bibliographic item.

     * textLang (text language) describes the languages and writing 
systems identified within the bibliographic work being described. Imprint, Pagination, and Other Details 10.6.6 Languages and 
Writing Systems
       mainLang	(main language) supplies a code which identifies the 
chief language used in the bibliographic work.
       otherLangs	(other languages) one or more codes identifying any 
other languages used in the bibliographic work.

Use of this element is described in 10.6.6 Languages and Writing 
Systems.  Though that chapter implies that it may only be used for 
manuscripts, it may in fact also be used in bibliographic references.


Make sense?
