exemple - Why we need a tag?:
For instance, if I want to translate Ubuntu (the Linux distribution) in order to allowed people to choose "Ortograf alternativ' during the install or update process of Ubuntu.
To do this I have to create a new translation team (directory):
To do this I need an ISO-639-1 or ISO-639-2 code. Soon I will be able to use an ISO-639-3 or variant tag (if i have one), a bue print has been draft for it in the Ubuntu translation project (rosetta-launchpad):
I don't know the technical or political reasons behind that, but a language code is often required to be a part of a translation sortware project.
