Microsoft Bing Translator Language Codes and Names

I noticed that Microsoft/Bing Translator API does not list the languages and associated language codes that need to be used in the API calls anywhere in their documentation. There is a function that gives you this list but wouldn’t it be easier to just list it somewhere? Language codes match the ISO 639-1 language list except the CHS/CHT distinction for Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
