Template:Lua

Reads a local copy of data from the table at Codes for the Representation of Names of Languages, extracts the ISO 639-2 codes, names, and ISO 639-1 synonyms. There are two functions in the tool: ISO_synonym_extract() and ISO_2_name_extract().

    • {{#invoke:Language/data/ISO 639-2/make|ISO_synonym_extract|file-date=YYYY-MM-DD
    for use in Module:Language/data/ISO 639-2 (-2T only) and Module:Language/data/ISO 639-2B:
