Below is the list of languages you will see when you need to select language(s) in Amara, either for your profile, or to specify the language of your video or subtitles. The list is ordered alphabetically by the language codes in accordance with ISO 639. This order does not match sorting alphabetically by language name in English, so you will find Spanish ('es') and its local dialects between Esperanto and Estonian, while Chinese Simplified ('zh-cn'), Chinese Traditional ('zh-tw'), and their variations are near the end of the list.

If you need a language that is not available in this list, please send your request to add the language to support@amara.org, indicating the exact name of the language and its ISO 639 code.
