That sounds like the right thing to do to me as well, based on my 
limited knowledge.

 From what I hear, the two languages are similar but not identical.  So 
people could translate to Filipino "using Tagalog as a guide" (the 
dropdown option on the translation pages) to get a quick start without 
mixing the two languages up.
