Language Codes

 
 
A list of all language codes (ISO 639-1) can be found here.

The ISO 639 provides two sets of language codes, one as a two-letter code set (639-1) and another as a three-letter code set for the representation of names of languages.

More information about ISO 639 can be found at:
