One of the most principal system values in the localization business is a language value. You can find the list of default languages defined in the Home Portal, but yet you can add a new language to your XTRF Platform. This article shows you how to add a new language to XTRF Platform.

Generic Languages

Please note that in XTRF Platform there are defined languages, such as English EN, which refer to the generic system value XTRF Platform. If you require precisely defined language, you should point to the system value which refers to the particular form of the language such as English US or English GB.
