Subject [jira] Commented: (NUTCH-162) country code "jp" is used instead of language code "ja" for Japanese
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2006 22:42:00 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NUTCH-162?page=comments#action_12361683 ] 

KuroSaka TeruHiko commented on NUTCH-162:
-----------------------------------------

This is causing an undesired behavior for Japanese users.  If the Nutch main index.jsp is
visited from the browser of which the preferred language is configured to be Japanese, the
app server's main page is displayed instead (Tomcat's Welcome page, for example).  This is
because the Nutch index.jsp tries to redirect to the non-exisiting "ja/".

> In locale switching link for Japanese, "jp" is used as language code but it is an ISO
country code.  The language code "ja" should be used.
> By the way, I don't think many users are familiar with the ISO language codes.  A Canadian
user may click on "ca" uknowoing that ca stands for Catalan, not Canadian English or French.
Rather than listing the language code, listing the language names in the prospective languages
may be better. (I say "may be" because the browser could show some language names in corrupted
text if the current font does not support that language --- this is a difficult problem.)
