* Languages that have two synonymous codes.


This table is based on the ISO 2 letter (Alpha-2 code, ISO 639-1) and 3 letter (Alpha-3 code, ISO 639-2) Standard Codes for the Representation of Names of Languages.

The table does not include mostly ancient languages that do not have assigned two letter codes.
