While publishing the content in sitecore, the following error occured.

Job started: Publish to 'web'|#Exception: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException:

While checking on logs, i found the error with following language

Could not parse the language 'ms-BD'. Note that a custom language name must be on the form: isoLanguageCode-isoRegionCode-customName.

But that language is not installed, and there are no language corresponding to that code.

UPDATE #1: Add some more log details:

  • anything more in the stacktrace of your error? – Marek Musielak Oct 22 '18 at 8:32
  • Is the language defined under the /sitecore/system/Languages node? – Dan Sinclair Oct 22 '18 at 11:48

Looks like you are trying to use culture 'ms-BD' that is not present in .NET by default. Check that you definitely need 'ms-BD' and it is not mistake or misprint.

You can check cultures registered in system by running this C# console app:

class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
        CultureInfo[] cinfo = CultureInfo.GetCultures(CultureTypes.AllCultures & ~CultureTypes.NeutralCultures);
        Console.WriteLine("List of cultures registered in system");
        foreach (CultureInfo cul in cinfo)
            Console.WriteLine(cul.DisplayName + "  " + cul.Name);

I get next cultures:

  • Malay ms
  • Malay (Brunei Darussalam) ms-BN
  • Malay (Malaysia) ms-MY
  • Malay (Latin, Singapore) ms-SG

But you are trying to use 'ms-BD'. Malay (Bangladesh)? If it is not misprint/mistake and you are intended to use 'ms-BD' then you need to register your custom culture:

class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
        string culture = "ms-BD";
        string name = "Malay Bangladesh";

        CultureInfo cultureInfo = new CultureInfo("ms");
        RegionInfo regionInfo = new RegionInfo("BD");

        CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder cultureAndRegionInfoBuilder = new CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder(culture, CultureAndRegionModifiers.None);


        // Custom Changes
        cultureAndRegionInfoBuilder.CultureEnglishName = name;
        cultureAndRegionInfoBuilder.CultureNativeName = name;


After running this console application on machine where exception was occurred you will get new custom culture that should fix exception.
