ISO 639-1 Language Codes

The Language Codes are matched with a country flag where applicable followed by the language name in its native form and then by the language name in its translated form, e.g. in English.

Support for ‘Complex Text Layout’ and the installation of appropriate character sets may be required to display some characters correctly.
