[OS X] Language and Region codes ???

[ #25805 ]

This totally puzzles me. I wrote about the language and regioncodes of the installed voices on my iBook. They all returned '0', and I assumed that this meant 'unknown'. That turns out not to be true.

I downloaded and installed Acapela Multimedia HQ TTS [] this morning, and now I have all of their available TTS languages installed. Simply querying the Language and region for each installed voice returns a strange list, and I can't find a complete list of all codes anywhere, so help is greatly appreciated. This is the list I have so far:

Language                   Region
0  English                 0  both UK and US
1  French                  1  France
2  German                  3  Germany
3  Italian                 4  Italy
4  Dutch                   5  Netherlands
5  Swedish                 6  Belgium
6  Spanish                 7  Sweden
9  Norwegian               8  Spain
34 Belgian Dutch (Flemish) 12 Norway

Does anyone have a complete list of these codes and their meaning?
