Localised language names need a lang-attribute to tell the browser that it is not in English

Description

Use a browser's "translate" feature on a page where we list languages in their local names and be amused how the browser bungles the translation. Or use a screen reader to let it read out the language names and be amused that it pronounces everything in an English accent.

The solution is to add a lang-attribute to the DOM element containing the localised language name to let the browser know what language this is in. So for the German language entry, the attribute should be lang="de" for example.

We have these language lists in several places.

This may not be a complete list.
