Subject Re: Stemming and other tokenizers

I have a similar use case, but slightly more flexible and straight forward.
In my case, I have a field "language" which stores 'en', 'es' or whatever
the language of the document is. Then the field 'transcript' stores the
actual content which is in the language as described in language field.
Following up with the conversation, is this how I am supposed to proceed:

   1. Create one field type in my schema per supported language. This would
   cause me to create ~30 fields.
   2. Since, I already know the language of my content, I can skip SOLR-1979
   (which is expected in Solr 3.5)

The point where I am unclear is, how do I specify at Index time, to use a
certain field for a certain language?
