  • Adding Korean to my Language Manager

    I am trying to add Korean to my site. I selected Add Language in my Language/Phrases Manager. The first few steps are simple, but I don't want to mess up these steps.

    1. Language Code

    Language Code This is the abbreviation your language uses, such as "en" or "en-US". See here for more information.
    When I go to the link there are two options.


    ISO 639-2 is the alpha-3 code. Where two codes are provided (22 languages total) the bibliographic code is given first and the terminology code is given second.

    ISO 639-1 is the alpha-2 code. Multiple codes for the same language are to be considered synonyms.
    Which one is best to use?

    2. HTML Character Set

    HTML Character Set This is the value of the 'charset' attribute for the HTML content type setting in the 'headinclude' template.<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />

    I went to w3.org and found this:


    There was 4 options:

    ks_c_5601-1987/ksc5601
    euc-kr
    so-2022-kr
    mac-korean

    Which is best to use?

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    1. You'll want to use ko here.

    2. You might want to use UTF-8 here.

      Colin,

      UTF-8 is not an option. Can you shed some insight? Thanks!

        UTF-8 is a standard character set that contains a very big amount of characters but isn't language specific.
