Still about ten days left to add new translations of CLDR (Unicode)
Federico Leva (Nemo), 16/05/2014 15:50:
Sorry for crossposting. CLDR data submission has
started this week,
we're looking for more translators: so far I have added 23 new
translators who made over a thousands translations and seem happy with
Instructions are kept up to date at
And now we're at 30 new translators, 18 of whom made 5812 "edits"!
They're all amusing. :)
We're notably missing, among our languages' "top 10": activity for
Spanish, German, Russian; any translator for French, Portuguese,
Chinese; and in top 20, Turkish, Swedish, Arabic, Czech, Indonesian,
I also see that the following it urgently wanted:
As you know, Wikimedia projects exist in almost 300 languages;
supporting them all is a big effort so we partner with other
organisations, also via Unicode. One small but visible thing we miss is
that many interwiki links in sidebar (among others) don't offer a
translation of the language name when hovered. This can be fixed: we're
now able to translate 100 more language names in your language.
If you're interested, I can create you an account to submit translations
on the CLDR web tool (within June 14): please send an email to ask
one and I'll follow up with instructions. On CLDR you can translate and
tweak many other things, if you desire; your work will impact hundreds
of software projects.
