Example Usage

Example usage of language of a document-link in an iati-organisation.
The @language attribute declares a valid code (en) from the Language codelist.
Note: This specifies the language of the document being linked to.
 <document-link format="application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text" url="http://www.example.org/docs/report_en.odt">
  <title>
    <narrative>Annual Report 2013</narrative>
    <narrative xml:lang="fr">Rapport annuel 2013</narrative>    	   
   </title>
   <category code="B01" />
   <language code="en" />
   <document-date iso-date="2014-02-05" />
   <recipient-country code="AF" />  
  </document-link>
In some cases, a document-link may be in multiple languages. This is expressed by repeating the language element.
<document-link format="application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text" url="http:www.example.org/docs/report.odt">
        <title>
                <narrative>Annual Report 2013</narrative>
                <narrative xml:lang="fr">Rapport annuel 2013</narrative>
        </title>
        <category code="B01" />
        <language code="en" />
        <language code="fr" />
</document-link>
