QA notes: In the web interface, currently you can only enter multiple langs via the URL, i.e. https://ocr-test.wmcloud.org/?langs[]=en&langs[]=fr

Follow-up PR that makes language input in the UI a bit more intuitive: https://github.com/wikimedia/wikimedia-ocr/pull/21

Better UI is merged (single input with tag-style language codes). Live on the test site (only, so far). @dom_walden, not sure if you want to have another look at this.

Thanks. This looks good to me.

When entering languages there is no autocomplete, the user has to know the correct name for the language.

There doesn't seem to be a limit to how many languages you can enter.
