Summary0004826: As a shop administrator I want to enter more than three characters for language abbreviation (locale)
DescriptionIn admin -> languages it is not possible to enter a local (what we call an "abbreviation") with more than 3 characters. But very often, this is important: English, Spanish, French and even German have different dialects, orthography (e.g. color and colour) and may even have different words for the same thing. Also, you might want to have an informal version of the same language installed additionally (think of Russian => my | vy).

Please increase the number of possible characters at least to five so we can refer to this standard:

Change maxlength="3" in [{ oxmultilang ident="LANGUAGE_ABBERVATION" }] into maxlength="10" or whatever you want but higher than "4". Or just delete it because it is not necessary ;)

even "255" would be ok and would not harm anyone - please change as well the longdescription to a higher value than 50

If you do not use the two-character language code from the ISO 639-1 specification for your languages the shop is no longer compatible with OXID eFire!
