.NET’s CultureInfo do not support all languages in ISO 639-1

July 4, 2009

When I wanna replace the Language enum in Google translate API for .NET, I found that, there are at two three language that Google supported but .NET Framework not.

The Filipino (tl) or Tagalog;

The Maltese (mt).

And the Hebrew, Google use “iw” as the code for its language api, but .NET and ISO 639 use “he”.

Well, where is the Babel?!
