TID 1200 Language Designation

Defines a mechanism for specifying a language, optionally with designation of the country in which that language applies.

Notes: 1. For example, the French language could be specified unmodified, or French as written in France or Canada could be distinguished.

2. The language codes specified in CID 5000 optionally allow the encoding of the country of language in the code value for the language. Encoding of the country of language in a separate subsidiary Concept Modifier content item is allowed for backward compatibility with previous editions of the Standard.
