Language Strings

The setlocale and _create_locale functions can use the Windows NLS API supported languages on operating systems that do not use the Unicode code page. For a list of supported languages by operating system version, see National Language Support (NLS) API Reference. The language string can be any of the values in the Language and Language name abbreviation columns of the list of supported languages. The C run-time library implementation also supports these language strings:
