Supported languages

Different language datasets have different features, therefore some languages don't currently work well with particular endpoints. The table belows shows which work with which, and you can use the live Documentation to explore the data more closely. The Utility endpoints are also designed to provide more granular information about what is in each dataset, should you need it.
