Locale code is a combination of ISO 639-1 language code and ISO 3166-1 country code. For example, en_PH is a locale code for English language in Philippines. Locale codes are used to define the language and country settings for date, time, currency, and number formatting.

They are used in programming languages, frameworks, and libraries to provide internationalization and localization features. Locale codes are also used in databases, operating systems, and web browsers to provide language and country-specific settings. Locale codes are standardized by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and are widely used in software development.
