I am trying to breakdown which language users have their browser language set to. For example, Dutch. By searching for 'nl' it includes traditional Spanish. Please can someone help?Unknown.jpeg

you can try this:

  1. click on the "advanced" link next to the filtering search bar
  2. select "Matching RegExp" in the match type field
  3. Insert "^nl" as a value for the match
  4. Click on "Apply"
