ISO 639

ISO 639 is an international specification assigning identifiers to language, i.e. language codes. It is split into five partial specifications.

The first specification was used to roughly encompass the most used languages and language families, and assigned them two letters each, for example en for english, or de for german (DEutsch). Because two letters can only address 26² = 676 combinations, a second part, ISO 639-2, has been introduced. In this table Klingon has been added with tlh. Part three also has tlh for klingon.

This is often used as confirmation that klingon is an officially recognized language.
