Hi there.

You should use "en-US".

There is a great explanation on the following two URLs that I am sharing below:

- hidden link (a great explanation and example at the top of the page)

- (a great explanation in the response from this StackOverflow post with an example containing the exact combination that you mentioned - lang="en-ES")

Kind regards,
Mihai Apetrei
