WoW API < GetLocale

Returns information about the client locale.

locale = GetLocale();

Description

The locale is what makes it possible to know what language the interface is using and thus determine which specific code is going to be executed in a localized addon.

Typically, this is used in a GetLocale block:

Example

if (GetLocale() == "frFR") then
    -- things for the french client
else
    -- for the rest, usually english since it's the default language
end

Locales

  • "frFR": French (France)
  • "deDE": German (Germany)
  • "enGB : English (Great Brittan) if returned, can substitute 'enUS' for consistancy
  • "enUS": English (America)
  • "koKR": Korean (Korea) RTL - right-to-left
  • "zhCN": Chinese (China) (simplified) RTL - right-to-left, implemented LTR left-to-right in WoW
  • "zhTW": Chinese (Taiwan) (traditional) RTL - right-to-left, implemented LTR left-to-right in WoW
  • "ruRU": Russian (Russia)
  • "esES": Spanish (Spain)
  • "esMX": Spanish (Mexico)
  • "ptBR": Portuguese (Brazil)
