    Which function returns languages names irregardless installed dictionary

    shirlenelss Level 1

      I am using Findkey in Indesign_TLB to return the indesign keys for languages to fill up a language map in my app.

      And LanguagesWithVendor to get the "Indesign display name" but I suspected Languagewithvendors only list languages with dictionary in Indesign CC 2015


      ISO name                  Indesign key              Indesign display name          etc..........

      ===================================================

      eg. Danish =>           $ID/Danish                 Danish

           Afrikaans=           $ID/Afrikaans             [empty]

       

      Is there another function I can use?

      Looking at C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CC 2015\Resources\Dictionaries\LILO\Linguistics\LanguageNames2\displayLanguagesName.en_in.tx t Afrikaans is in it.

      I don't want to hard code the path and use the txt becos my users are using many different Indesign versions.

       

      Thanks in advance
