Question:

What are the Netflix approved language codes for delivery? 

Answer:

The table below will assist you in choosing the correct language code for your asset. Please be sure to select the correct code prior to delivery, as some language codes differ between timed text assets (written text) and audio or video assets (spoken dialogue).

If the desired language code is not found in the table below please contact your Netflix representative. If your content does not contain any spoken dialogue, please use the language for “none” which is “zxx”.
