Specify the language for invoices

To specify the language of invoices for a payer who does not have a PayPal account, or a unilateral payer, you can use BusinessInfoType.language. If you omit the language field, a unilateral payer receives invoices in the merchant's language. If the payer has a PayPal account, this field is ignored and the payer's language is used. The language field is specified in the billingInfo container.
