Localization - A stupid question

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I was wandering where can I find the list of language code name with
this prefix country_language.
i.e. en_US, en_GB, fr_BE etc
I have noticed a few programs use this type of prefix (firefox does in
a way).
I have looked ISO's and never found exactly the list I am looking for.
Does anybody know anything about this..?

Thank you.

P.S. sorry for bothering you for this stupid question. I think I ran
out of google search keywords.. :S

They're sometimes called locales. Here are some lists but Im not sure how  
complete they are:
Also check this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locale

It's to separate the language from the nationality. For example Finland is  
officially bi-lingual, we have sv_Fi and fi_FI. The formatting currency,  
date, time, etc is same for all FI, but the language used in the application  
might be either swedish or finnish depending on which locale it is.

In Unix you can also use locale -a from the command line to see a list
of locales supported by the machine.
