Country Table in Core Development (Archive) Posted September 6, 2006 Both ISO 2 and ISO 3 codes are needed as there are payment gateways that only accept one or the other. The zone names are currently in their native language (ISO-3166-2). Providing native definitions for the country names is also being looked into (eg, Germany vs Deutschland). This will ofcourse depend on the language. The english language would use ISO-3166 country names, however other languages should use their native country names definitions.
