Specify the language for invoices

You can use BusinessInfoType.language to specify the language of invoices for a payer who doesn't have a PayPal account (that is, a unilateral payer). 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.
