can I tell filebot to use "es" Instead of "spa" and "en" instead of 'eng"

I use this to rename and add the language code to the srt subtitles {'.'+lang}, but it uses spa and eng, I would prefer ES and EN.

is even possible to make filebot to do that?

Thanks

Yes. You can have your custom format yield 2-letter language codes:

Code: Select all

{'.'+lang.ISO2}
My (very excellent) support depends on Windows Store and Mac App Store sales and Patreon support. Paying users, donors and everyone who contributes to FileBot in one way or another will get the very best support.

Does this also work with the {subt} binding or for fn:suball?

No. The suball script does not support custom format expressions at all. If you use --format MATCH_VIDEO_ADD_LANGUAGE_TAG (e.g. i.e. --format constant for -get-subtitles) then you'll always get ISO 639-3 language codes.

You can use -rename --db xattr -non-strict to batch process files offline with your own --format and this way you can change 3-letter language codes to 2-letter language codes.
