General Rules

  • If the primary language has only one sublanguage, use SUBLANG_DEFAULT.
  • If the primary language has more than one sublanguage and we have no general translation for this primary language yet, use SUBLANG_NEUTRAL for the general translation.
  • If the primary language has more than one sublanguage, we already have a general translation for this primary language and you want to add a translation specifically for this sublanguage, use SUBLANG_SubLanguageName for this specific translation.

Exceptions of these Rules

  • If the primary language is LANG_ENGLISH and you want to add a general english translation, you have to use SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US.
    Every file, which contains translations, should have a LANG_ENGLISH, SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US translation as this is also used as a fallback.
  • For LANG_IRISH, you cannot use SUBLANG_DEFAULT. In this case, you have to use SUBLANG_IRISH_IRELAND.

Languages that need to be discussed

  • Simplified Chinese vs. Traditional Chinese, can we set a default or neutral language here or do we always need two different translations?
