column      value                comment
1                ISO-639-3        3-letter code
2                ISO-639-2/B     3-letter code base on English 
pronunciation of name
                                            E.g. ger, wel for German and 
3                ISO-639-2/T     3-letter code based on local 
pronunciation of name
                                            E.g. deu, cym for German and 
4                ISO-639-1        2-letter code
