I have a website were we will provide two different translations for two
dialects of Cape Verdean Creole. One is from Island of
Santiago<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santiago,_Cape_Verde> and
another one is from Island of São

In the Language Subtag Registry there is only one subtag for Cape Verdean
Creole (kea) and one reginal code for Cape Verde (CV). So I wonder if there
is any best practice for language tags for dialects?

Can I use regional ISO 3166-2 tags? I found two that correspond good to the
two different dialects:

Sourhern region <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilhas_de_Sotavento> ISO
3166-2 = CV-B
Northern region <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilhas_de_Barlavento> ISO
3166-2 = CV-S
