Spanish language for Latin America (es_419)

XTRF has 'Spanish (Latin America)' added as default for Spanish language.

In order to communicate with CAT Tools about what language pair is used in a given shared Project, ISO codes are used.

Spanish (Latin America) is a locale that brings all Latin American dialects under one language code. It is frequently used in localization but not every CAT tool recognizes that.

XTRF has it added as default, and ready for work with various CAT Tools.

If you can't see it on your system, one of the following actions may be required:

  1. Checking if the Active box is checked next to that language in  Configuration MenuSystem Values (Advanced) > Languages Edit,
  2. New defaults may need to be added (especially if your database has a long history of Projects),
  3. A new entry can be added manually.
