Description

In https://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=113669090 there were many <span lang="fr-FR"> tags added, even though it's on the French Wikipedia. This looks like T71494 but I'm not sure it's exactly the same issue. One cause might be the mix of French and English text.

See also https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=656444224 with <span lang="EN-US"> on the English Wikipedia.

Strip language annotations on external import

Couldn't reproduce this locally, but will add language annotations to the external import blacklist, which should prevent this.
