Metadata is not language-independant!!!

I observed that Blogs written in non-English not have access to the Overall metadata Schema, which is English.

(this Editor is a complete mess!!!!)

E.g. if I choose German as language I only get the following Dropdown menu for Primary tags

The metadata Schema should be language-independant!

I think this blog explains the concept

and also the German homepage explains it:

Show 1 Share
10 |10000 characters needed characters left characters exceeded

And there is this weird concept, that this is applied only to the primary tag, not to the secondary one(s). This means, that you could create a blog/ask question in Portuguese with primary tag Nota Fiscal and add SD Billing as secondary tag, but you can't do the opposite.

And for questions this can be a problem - on tag pages you have a country selector, but not on the metadata ones, neither I can see a filter for metadata, other than question status. As a result you get a different number of questions in both views.
