Open Graph Meta Tags


Learn how to use the og:locale:alternate meta tag to improve your site.

Defines an alternative locale for the content on a webpage. This tag is used by social media platforms to display content in the user's preferred language, if available.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:locale:alternate" content="fr_FR" />
Specifies French (France) as an alternate language for the content.
<meta property="og:locale:alternate" content="es_ES" />
Defines Spanish (Spain) as an alternate locale, allowing social media platforms to serve content in this language if preferred by the user.
<meta property="og:locale:alternate" content="french" />
Incorrectly specifies the locale using the full language name rather than the proper locale code.
<meta property="og:locale:alternate" content="en-US" />
Uses a hyphen instead of an underscore to separate the language code and country code, which is not the standard format for locales.


  • Specify Locale Correctly
    Ensure you use the right format for locales, which is typically in the form of language_TERRITORY. For example, "en_US" for English (United States).
  • Use in Conjunction with og:locale
    Always pair "og:locale:alternate" with the "og:locale" meta tag to define the primary language first and then list the alternates.
