The language is determined by the user's setting in the internet browser. For example, an english speaking user can access the website from a foreign country in which another language is spoken and still use the english setting (eng-us). The composition results from the language code (eng for english) and the country code (us for the United States).

In most cases, the first language is the user's native language and the secondary language is a language known to the user. Typical browser settings are:

German (spoken in Austria) as first language, no second language:

  • de-de (German - Germany) = German spoken in Germany
