About Oromo

Oromo is a Cushitic Afro-Asiatic language spoken in Ethiopia and Kenya. Because the Oromo writing system is based on the English alphabet and has no accents, no special accent codes or fonts are needed.

Note: Oromo documents from before 1991 may be written in the Ethiopic script.

HTML and Oromo Language Code

Language Code: om

No special codes or fonts are needed for placing Oromo on the Web, but language tags are suggested so that search engines and screen readers parse the language of a page. These are meta data tags which indicate the page of a language, not devices to trigger translation.

Visit the Language Tag page to view information on where to insert it.
