I really appreciate this!
Like you might know part of the development work of Kiwix takes place in
Mali and Kiwix is broadly installed in Malian schools.
Translatewiki had also added support of Songhai on our request and we
have been waiting to this translation for around a year.
Thus, thank you very much, this translation will be included to Kiwix
base code and make available for end-users in next releases of the software.

Thank you for the information and the links. I translated it into
Songhay (ses) in which Translatewiki has already been localized.

at Kiwix, we do our best to support as much as possible the

smaller wikis but also provide localised user interface.
Kiwix user interface is localised by volunteers on Translatewiki. You
can get there a good overview of the current status for each language:
Kiwix user interface is already translated in more than 100 languages
but you can see by yourself that many essential African languages are
still not fully translated. For this reason we can't integrate them as
"supported language" to the software.
Thus, this would be really great if a few readers of this mailing list
help to improve Kiwix localisation in their mother tongue. Translate
the whole set of strings in one language takes only a few hours and
can really benefit to thousands of Kiwix users (but many of the
languages are already partly translated).
Here is how to start:
Thank you in advance for your help.
