On a Joomla multilingual website, when I set up categories, I can create one top-level category assigned to each language installed - EN and BR, for example. Under each of them, I can have categories with the same name for each language (e.g. Blog).

I assumed I could do the same with Tags.

But, when I create two top-level tags assigned to each language installed and populate them with tags which is the same word on both languages - e.g. tutorial - I noticed that is not possible, as I would do with categories.

Steps to reproduce the issue

  1. In multilingual Joomla installation, go to Administrator > Components > Tags
  2. Create two tags assigned to each of the languages installed. E.g.: EN assigned to English and BR assigned to Brazilian Portuguese.
  3. Create a tag named Tutorial and assign it to English.
  4. Select EN as its parent tag.
  5. Create a new tag also named Tutorial and assign it to Brazilian Portuguese.
  6. Select BR as its parent tag.

Expected result

Tags with the same name, when assigned to different languages and nested under different parent tags to be created.

Actual result

The system gives you the following
Error - Save failed with the following error: Another Tag has the same alias (remember it may be a trashed item).

Additional comments

Allowing tags to work as categories do, users will be able to create tags with the same name and be able to sort articles by language when using tags as well.
