Google Taxonomy source what should I choose, or is it not important?

I have just noticed in our Google Shopping feed generator that our Google Taxonomy source is set to en_US 


If we were in the UK should it be en_GB and then if in France fr_FR


or is it not important which one is chosen?


Obviously I wouldn't select 'French' option for our English Language site. 


Maybe the answer is obvious Smiley Happy But I just wanted to check if it should be en_GB for UK and en_US only for our US site, then by changing what effect if any will it have?

WilI I need to re-map our categories? 

Many thanks in advance

There is no difference between US and other languages.

You do need to make sure you stick with one language. So if it's US stick with US within the same feed.


US can be used in all countries.


Hope it helps
