Language Designators

A language designator is a code that represents a language. LingoHub uses the two-letter ISO 639-1 standard. This identifies a language used in many regions or a dialect used in a specific region. To specify a language used in many regions, use a language designator by itself. To specify a specific dialect, use a hyphen to combine a language designator with a region designator.
