Re: language codes list on wiki

I updated the codes.
That RFC document is a good link for information. The question is how we should incorporate that information into ImpressCMS to enhance things (country dropdown lists, language management, ...)

The multi-language is one of the strong points of ImpressCMS, so what can we do to improve on it? Obvious strategies will be to provide language distribution packages that can be easily installed in the system from the ACP.
Any other suggestions?

Re: language codes list on wiki

Think we should consider to have multiple lists for ICMS:

1. Country codes/names: ISO 3166, already implemented.
2. Language codes/names: As listed in the wiki list and according to the RCF document
3. Language codes/names: ISO 639-3, 3 letter code for the languages

Further, we have to know how to read the codes from no. 2 and 3.
I think nl-BE should be read as Dutch in Belgium (no. 2), as where vls represents Vlaams as language (no. 3).

If these lists are part of the core they are available to core and module developers and these developers can decide which list is best to use for a core or module feature/function.

Re: language codes list on wiki

I think adding the lists can certainly be arranged. If we want to work on languages, we'll need a better foundation and these lists are part of that.
