It is a common business practice to localize 
content into a neutral version of Latin American 
Spanish to serve all or most Spanish-speaking 
regions in Latin America. This code is intended 
to identify this neutral variant of Latin 
American Spanish and distinguish it from 
Castilian found in Europe.
