Language Code

A collection of two or three-digit ISO-639 codes to identify languages. For example, English is "en", German is "de", etc.

Languages can also have language variants, which are separated from the root code by a dash. French Canadian, for example, is "fr-ca".


See the Wikipedia page on ISO-639.
