Changing book language

I have an epub I created in Sigil going from an english version to now make it German. I see in the Content.opf file the language tag. I need to change this to German which I am hoping will break the words as they roll over in the proper place when the text flows. Is there a place in Sigil to do this or I can change it in the .opf file, but how do I know what to put in there to choose German?

I think you want to use the Metadata edit window (F8 ) to change the BOOKS specified Language to 'de'). (Sigil is not a translator program)

The DEFAULT Dictionary Language and Interface Languages are set in: Edit: Preferences:

Note: these setting locations are the current beta for V6
