Right, I'm having one of those days.

I'm looking for something. Google isn't helping. Neither is Bing.

I'm learning from my past mistakes [webmasterworld.com], but that ain't helping either.

I want a list of languages, like en-US, en-GB, etc. I've found that the format is RFC 3066.

I understand how the codes are created. I just want a list of them all.

Maybe I'm getting the wrong end of the stick - is the point of the standard not to create a list of languages like this, but provide a means of identifying any language/location combination? If so, that's a shame. Because I really could do with that list.

Any ideas?

I just want to avoid manually creating a list.

Even an incomplete list would do - as long as it has most of the common language variations in there (en-, fr-, es-, etc), I'd be happy.

ISO 639 - language codes

ISO 3166 - country codes

ISO 4217 - currency codes

ISO 8601 - date formats

I'm not so sure if there's a list of country-language code pairings.

Here is a list of language code and country code combinations.
