TMX language codes

DISCLAIMER: This list is offered as quick reference, and does not pretend to contain all language codes. ISO lists of languages and countries are regularly updated. No guarantee and no liability are implied.

The TMX standard for Translation Memory eXchange uses language codes made of a lower-case, two-character language code compliant with ISO 639, followed by a dash (a minus sign) then a two-character upper-case country code (aka a locale, a geographical category), compliant with ISO 3166.

In the early days a -01 suffix was sometimes used instead of the country code when a language was limited to a single country. In addition, language codes were sometimes capitalized, so for example it was common to see JA-01 for Japanese when it should be ja-JP, or EN-UK instead of the canonical en-GB. Since TMX TMs are text files, a simple search-replace operation with a text editor will fix the issue. For example, run a case-sensitive search for "JA-01", replace it with "ja-JP", including quotes.

Kindly contact us if you find errors or omissions.
