    Or is that [tk] for Turkmen (the language code in ISO 639-1)?
    Not to confuse with [tr], the ISO 639-1 code for the Turkish language...

    (no language currently has the 2-letters code [tc] in ISO 639-1).

    The Tokelau language also exists with its own language code [tkl] in ISO 639-2/B
    or 639-2/T, but no 2-letters code in ISO 639-1.

    Tokelau [TK] is a group of islands in the Pacific, and a dependency of New
    Zealand [NZ].

    Turks and Caicos Islands (in French, ╬les Turks et Ca´ques, ISO 3166 code [TC])
    is a dependency of the British Crown in the Carribeans. Its main language is
    English [en]...

    May be it's time to get into the new CLDR repository if you don't have one of
    the many copies of the ISO 3166 country/territory codes list, and of the ISO 639
    language codes, and the ongoing ISO 3066 locale codes?

    Never forget that language codes and country/territory codes are different...
