The language engineering monthly report for August 2017 is ready.
**Highlights for this month**
Language database is now an independent project to make reuse easier. It
used to be part of jquery.uls library. It contains over 500 entries
detailing basic information about languages, such as their autonym, their
writing script, and region(s) of the world where they are spoken.
August was, so far, the most active month of 2017 for translatewiki.net
with the highest number of translation updates (55k) and translation
reviews (15k) by over 350 translators.
For those unfamiliar with this report, its goal is to summarize all
technical changes to internationalization, translation tools and other
language support products. It also highlights the diversity of contributors
to this area and that many of them are volunteers.
