Locales Missing

Hi,

we have different brands for austria, germany and switzerland
abc-germany
abc-austria 
abc-switzerland

we were hoping that we can simply use one store and translate those (replace images, replace company name) for the Austrian/switzerland storefront and keep using one store. As Products, prices, currency, company is 100% the same.
Unfortunately you only have one "de" localization" and not de-AT and de-CH as you have for Portuguese for example
"isoCode": "pt-BR",
"name": "Portuguese (Brazil)"
},
{
"isoCode": "pt-PT",
"name": "Portuguese (Portugal)"

Would this be something you can add? Can we add it ourselves somehow? Or do you have a workaround in mind?

What we'd need is 
"isoCode": "de-AT",
"name": "German (Austria)"
},
{
"isoCode": "de-CH",
"name": "German (Switzerland)"

Hey @Marc_M,

If you want to create your own translations, you can create a new locale file in your theme. This doc explains how locale files work, and this one outlines the technical details about the file.

Hey @JB ,

this doesn't allow us to visit abc.com/de-CH/ tho ... 

Also it doesn't allow us to choose German (Switzerland) in Settings -> Store languages
