Copy all content of the sitecore tree from one language to another

If you want to migrate all the content of the siteore from
existing language to new language then below solution is fit for you.
Problem statement: my client wanted to migrate the complete
site from /fr-fr to /fr  so I had to
migrate all language version of “fr-fr” into new language version called “fr”. We
migrated more than 1 million items from FR-FR to fr with below solution:
There are three major tasks to migrate this language
  1. Export the language
  2. Change the language in file

Step1: Create new language in the system called FR only.
Step2.  Go to control
panel > globalization>

Step3. Click on export language to a file

my case I selected the content folder as I need to migrate the complete tree,
but we can select any folder or item.

Step8: Open the file in notepad ++ or any editor and
replace fr-fr with fr
