Many customers wonder what the letters mean in the translated documents we send. Essentially when sending a file back to a client we always add a language code. So if your document was called “Document-to-translate.doc” and we translated it into Greek – we would send it back as “Document-to-translate-EL.doc”.

Below is a useful guide to ISO Language Codes.
