The ISO 639 Registration Authorities' Joint Advisory Committee has made the following change:
Identifier: btk [no change]
English names: changed from Batak (Indonesia) to Batak languages
French names: changed from batak (Indonésie) to batak, langues
The implication of this change is that the item is considered a language group rather than an individual language.
This change has already been implemented on the ISO 639-2 web site, and information about the name change has been circulated in various fora. However, no formal announcement has previously been made.
Best regards,
Håvard Hjulstad
(secretary ISO 639 RA-JAC)
