[Koha] How to search by Language on OPAC?

I am having the same problem. A faculty member just asked the other day
for a list of books in certain languages, so I was glad to see Melisa's
question. I'd like to figure out if this is a bug, or if there's
something I can do as an administrator (i.e., not a coder) to fix it.
If anyone knows of a workaround for now, that would be good, too.

Thanks Nicole. I think I've still got something wrong. Our framework
didn't have a 008 field so I created one. Now when I'm editing a record
I have the "..." next to the field and when I click on it I am able to
enter the 3-character language code in 35-37. But whenever I try to
search by Language I am getting "No Results found."
On a side note, we were wondering if our patrons would have to use the
3-character code when searching in the OPAC. We want them to be able to
enter "French" for example. Would that work?
