Searching for weather.com Language Codes (en-US)

Post by jsmorley »

I have created a small table on our server to hold the Language Codes (i.e. en-US / fr-FR etc.) supported by https://weather.com.


The information can be accessed at:

https://admin.rainmeter.net/LanguageCodes.php


You can simply scroll or CTRL-F search in your browser to find the Language Code you want.

You can also use WebParser to add a feature to your skin allowing your users to select the language they want.


The data is returned with <tags></tags> to make it easy to parse.

<CountryName> : Name of a specific country (i.e. Romania)
<LanguageName> : Name of the language (i.e. Romanian)
<UnitName> : Units of measure (Metric / Imperial)
<LanguageCode> : The Language Code to use with weather.com (i.e. ro-RO)

Code: Select all

<CountryName>Romania</CountryName></td><td style="width: 40%;"><LanguageName>Romanian</LanguageName></td><td style="width: 10%;"><UnitName>Metric</UnitName></td><td style="width: 10%;"><span style="color:#E67E17"><LanguageCode>ro-RO</LanguageCode></span>
There are currently 181 records in the table. These are in no way ALL the Language Codes that exist, just the ones supported by weather.com.

All names are represented in the English / ASCII character set variant of the name.

Germany, not Deutschland
Japanese, not 日本語, not Nihongo

The data is sorted by CountryName, LanguageName".

To be clear, these codes when use with the URL for weather.com will control what language and units of measures the values are returned in. This has nothing to do with which location is being measured. You can return the weather for Milwaukee, Wisconsin in Arabic if you like...
