Wikipedia edition codes

Each Wikipedia has a code, which is used as a subdomain below wikipedia.org. Interlanguage links are sorted by that code.

The codes mostly correspond to the language codes defined by ISO 639-1 and ISO 639-3, and the decision of which language code to use is mostly in accordance with the IETF language tag policy.

One code is not a language code ('be-x-old') but refers to a specific orthography.

Some deviations include:

WP edition name WP code Code meaning in ISO 639
Alemannic als
Ripuarian ksh Kölsch, one variety of the Ripuarian languages
Bokmål no Norwegian in general, i.e. Bokmal ('nb'/'nob') and Nynorsk ('nn'/'nno'). Nynorsk correctly uses 'nn'
