Culture Codes

In .NET programming, you set a program’s locale by specifying a culture. A neutral culture is associated with a language, but not a particular country or region. A specific culture is a neutral culture, together with a country or region.

For example, en-US has the neutral culture code “en,” meaning English and the country code “US,” meaning the United States. So the specific culture code en-US means English as used in the United States. There are more than a dozen other English culture codes, including English as used in Australia (en-AU), Belize (en-BZ), Jamaica (en-JM), Great Britain (en-GB), and Trinidad and Tobago (en-TT).
