LANGUAGE -- language code for the current user

  • Returns the language code for the current user. This is the language used by Foswiki to generate the user interface.
  • The language is detected from the user's browser, unless some site/web/user/session-defined preference setting overrides it:
    • If a LANGUAGE preference is explicitly set, this will be used as the user language instead of any language detected from the browser.
    • ALERT! Avoid defining LANGUAGE in a non- per-user way, otherwise users will not be able to choose their preferred language.
  • Do not confuse LANGUAGE with LANG
  • Syntax: %LANGUAGE%
  • Expands to: en
  • Related: LANGUAGES
