Having just switched organisations, I have worked with a different custom made java-based app (only for assigning interpreters to meetings or otherwise add/change their programme). In the other app, there was no difference between language varieties.
While I see the use of having language varieties separately in XTRF (as it's indeed needed, especially for localisation projects or marketing/branding materials), I find it extremely limitating that that the "general" language doesn't include it's varieties.
I wish that, when searching for vendors with DE, to be able to see everyone having DE, DE-DE, DE-AT, DE-LU, DE-CH. Same for French, same for English and so on. This would be very intuitive in my opinion, without having to click on all language varieties, and you would still be able to search for a specific variety if needed.
Do you think other key users would find this development useful? If so, could this be implemented?
