Icecat Locales and Language Code Table

Avatar for icecat

Within Icecat a large number of languages or locales (language and country combinations) are supported. The numerical IDs (Icecat LangID) and language short codes in Icecat that we use for these languages or locales can be found below. For the sake of short codes and simplicity we use the general country or language code for the main locale. So, “DE” is actually short for “DE_DE”, and just “DE” is used for getting a general German version of data-sheet, which is useful in any country or region where German is spoken. But, to get specifically German content for Switzerland “DE_CH” is to be used.

(Note: in a few cases, like US or BR, country and not language codes are adopted by Icecat as lang code. Over time, we will look into harmonizing these inconsistencies)
