Although I'm not sure if suffixes of translations would change to the above rule or not, I've tried creating a template {{WPDLanguages}}[1] to show the list of /lang:{tag} subpages, forked from current {{Languages}} template[2].

Note: Due to MediaWiki's limitation of the number of parsing function calls ({{#ifexist}}), current implementation of {{WPDLanguages}} will check existence of only subpages with /lang:{tag} suffix. (/{tag} subpages will be ignored.)

I'm afraid that there have already been so many translation subpages with /{tag} suffixes...

Regards,
Tomoyuki

Note that there are quite a lot of Spanish translations in existence already, done by the UOC in Barcelona. You could translate new things, or help to migrate those over to webplatform and edit them so they are up to date.
