ISO 639 Language lists: Introduction

ISO 639 specifies both 2- and 3-letter codes for indicating a language. The codes are used for the value of the lang= attribute. (In P5 encoding, this is the xml:lang attribute.) Use the list linked below to find language codes; the language code will be the 2- or 3-character entry in the “subtag” field.

IANA-registered language codes
