Language: A language of the resource. Recommended best practice is to use a controlled vocabulary such as RFC 4646 [RFC4646].

Notes: An image may contain language such as superimposed labels. If an image is of a natural scene or organism, without any language included, the resource is language-neutral (ISO code “zxx”). Resources with present but unknown language are to be coded as undetermined (ISO code “und”). Resources only containing scientific organism names should be coded as "zxx-taxon" (do not use the incorrect “la” for Latin). For regional dialects or other special cases, conform to the IETF Best Practices for Tags Identifying Languages.

As of 2012-04-11, the Dublin Core metadata Initiative recommends the use of a controlled vocabulary such as RFC 4646. For Darwin Core, the latest RFC for ISO 639-1 is the recommended version (RFC 5646 as of 2012-04-11).

Further documentation on the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) language codes can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IETF_language_tag.

A list of language codes can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-1_codes.

Example(s): 'en' for English or 'ru' for Russian
