Language Identifier Constants and Strings

Each language identifier is composed of a primary language identifier indicating the language and a sublanguage identifier indicating the country/region. The language identifier corresponds to a particular locale, for example, English (United States), represented as "en-US". The language identifier is used as part of the locale identifier.

A primary or sublanguage identifier can be user-defined or predefined. The table included in this topic defines the predefined primary language identifiers with their valid sublanguage identifiers and shows the locale identifiers in which they are used. The locale identifiers themselves are defined in Locale Identifier Constants and Strings.

Note: If there is no sublanguage identifier to use with a primary language identifier, your application should use SUBLANG_DEFAULT. It should use SUBLANG_NEUTRAL for resources that are the same for all sublanguages of a primary language.

A user-defined primary language identifier is a value in the range 0x0200 to 0x03ff. All other values are reserved for operating system use.

A user-defined sublanguage identifier has a value in the range 0x20 to 0x3f. All other values are reserved for operating system use.
