One doesn’t have to exclude the other; wanting to find text tagged as “US English” when searching for text in “English” is not unusual.
So users could be vague (just language) or more specific (e.g. adding a region, dialect, or orthography), while searches could either be encompassing (e.g. just language, which would also find more specifically-tagged variants) or narrow (which would only find specifically-tagged ones).
