Langtags

Lingua Libre uses nor ISO 639-3 nor BCP47 but Wikidata Qids as internal identifier for a language. Currently, ISO 639-3 codes are used in two cases:
• For the name of pages containing lists in the list namespace;
• To forge Wikimedia Commons's category names

Other languages:
English • ‎Esperanto • ‎norsk bokmål • ‎polski • ‎македонски

Switching to other code ?

Changing the code would affect only those two parts of the process. If we switch from one language tag to an other, we would have to:

  • Add a new property BCP47 locally as you suggested (a bot can import them from Wikidata);
  • Rename all local lists (can be made by hand, we don't have many lists for now on);
  • Rename all existing Wikimedia Commons categories and move all the audio recordings (a bot there is required);
