Language codes for your employee data file

Including the Language variable in your employee data enables us to address your employees in their preferred language. When responding to a survey, participants will also see the questionnaire in the language assigned to them in the employee file.

What should the Language variable look like?

My Effectory uses ISO 639-1 standard language codes. Once you've matched your column containing language data with our Language field, My Effectory will automatically show you all available options in a drop-down menu. See a list of all supported languages below.
