What are the Language country codes for Facebook Connect and other websites?

world with flags and facebook connect logo

There are various times you will need a list of locale codes for use in website code for localisation.  If, for example, you’re adding a Facebook like button, Activity Feed, Recommendations, Login Button, Facepile, Live stream or comments system from the Facebook developers site and want a language OTHER than English, you will come across the text:

"How do I display the Like button in different languages? If you are using the XFBML version include the language code when you instantiate the library. Replace ‘en_US’ in this line with the correct locale code:", but what you won't see are the codes."

Here is a list of language local codes for HTML, XTML and XFBML (or anywhere you need language local code).




Please note: If you are using these codes for a Facebook like button, Activity Feed, Recommendations, Login Button, Facepile, Live stream, comments system etc, you will need to change the format. For example if you want to replace ‘en_US’ with 'sp_SP' to have you Facebook connect appear in Spanish, the you make sure the last two letters are Capitals (all caps). Eg sp_SP or de_DE (for Germany) not sp_sp or de_de.
