I am trying to add a googlemaps path to my requirejs-config file, but I need to put the locale on the end of the string. Here is what my requirejs-config file looks like. I need a way to get the local in javascript to put on the end of this url.

var config = {
    'map': {
        "*": {
            'googlemaps': '//maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=mykey&libraries=places&language=' + NEED-LOCAL-HERE

I would like to do this inside of //Magento_Checkout/web/template/shipping-address/form.html. This is what I have in that file right now.

<form class="form form-shipping-address" id="co-shipping-form" data-bind="attr: {'data-hasrequired': $t('* Required Fields')}">
    <!-- ko foreach: getRegion('before-fields') -->
    <!-- ko template: getTemplate() --><!-- /ko -->
    <div id="shipping-new-address-form" class="fieldset address">
        <!-- ko foreach: getRegion('additional-fieldsets') -->
        <!-- ko template: getTemplate() --><!-- /ko -->
        <!-- ko if: (isCustomerLoggedIn) -->
        <div class="field choice" data-bind="visible: !isFormInline">
            <input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" id="shipping-save-in-address-book" data-bind="checked: saveInAddressBook" />
            <label class="label" for="shipping-save-in-address-book">
                <span data-bind="i18n: 'Save in address book'"></span>
        <!-- /ko -->

<script type="text/x-magento-init">
        "*": {
            "shippingAddress": {
                "googlemapskey": "https//maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=mykey&libraries=places&language=PUT_LOCALE_HERE"

You should pass the value in the template

In your .phtml template

            "https//maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=mykey&libraries=places&language=<?php echo $block->getLanguageCode() ?>"
        ], function () {
            // Your code here

You need to build the method getLanguageCode() in your block. You can pass your api key in template: key=mykey.

There are some extensions about google map. You can download and see the source code
