Language Identifiers and Locales

Windows Mobile 6.5
A version of this page is also available for
4/8/2010

The NLS tables describe the language identifiers available to an OS design. A language identifier is a sixteen bit value that consists of a primary language identifier and a sublanguage identifier. This differs slightly from a locale identifier (LCID), which is 32 bits and includes the primary language identifier, sublanguage identifier and a sort identifier.

Platform Builder uses the LCIDs in your NLS table to determine which locales to support in your OS design. You can modify the NLS table to add or remove locale information. Use the MAKELCID macro in your applications to create an LCID. Use the language identifier to set the LOCALE environment variable for a localized build of the OS.

The following table shows the worldwide languages and locales.
