Language Metadata Table

Release Date: August 7, 2018

Based on the work conducted over the past sixteen months for international HBO productions, MESA’s Language Metadata Table (LMT) is an expandable mapping resource that organizes language metadata from a preliminary list of almost 140 languages and dialects.

HBO is encouraging industry adoption of the IETF BCP 47 languages standard and, in the spirit of industry collaboration, granted MESA the rights to publish HBO’s work and begin an LMT Working Group.
