Languages & localization

Metanorma allows generation of standards in different languages.

The language of the document is specified in following document attributes:

  • :language: — two-letter language code, such as en (default) or fr.

  • :script: — script (for languages with more than one script). Specify Hans for Simplified Chinese. Default is Latn.

  • :i18nyaml: — language template file. Only needed if you’re using a language other than English, Chinese (Simplified) or French.


If you’re looking for information about how to add support for a new language in your custom Metanorma workflow, see localization in Metanorma builder’s documentation.
