Find code

See Wikipedia: List of ISO 639-1 codes, and in the table of languages, look at the column saying "639-1". If your language isn't there, see Wikipedia: List of ISO 639-2 codes, and look at the Alpha-3 column. If it still isn't there, look at the ISO 639-3 codes list and click a letter. If it isn't there yet, write the language's name in English. You may also ask someone.
