If this variable is set, it names the language code that the gettext command (see gettext) uses to translate strings. For example, French would be named as ‘fr’, and Simplified Chinese as ‘zh_CN’.

grub-mkconfig (see Simple configuration) will try to set a reasonable default for this variable based on the system locale.
