FlightStats New APIs now speak German and Japanese

Close on the announcement of incorporating Simplified Chinese in the FlightStats® Flex API responses. FlightStats has now added German and Japanese to its repertoire. The new Flex APIs can now deliver query results in any of four languages using the "extended options" feature - English, German, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese.

 FlightStats® Flex APIs deliver translated flight status responses and flight schedules data, along with airport names, countries, cities, and street addresses. Developers will be able to specify the language they prefer by simply appending a optional parameter to the query and will receive the translated response in their choice of XML or JSON.

All of FlightStats services follow the same pattern, so to request localization simply add the following optional parameter to the query: (no special parameters required for English)

German
&extendedOptions=languageCode:de






Japanese
&extendedOptions=languageCode:ja





Simplified Chinese
&extendedOptions=languageCode:zh
