How to use openai text to speech to generate speech for different languages?

If your input is English, you can use the following code:

from pathlib import Path
from openai import OpenAI
client = OpenAI(api_key="your_key")

speech_file_path = Path(__file__).parent / "speech.mp3"
response =
input="Today is a wonderful day to build something people love!"


but what If you want to say the same input, but different language?

Is there a parameter called “language” in the text to speech API?

Sorry, there isn’t.
