display "nederlandsk" in Danish for nl (add to overwrites)
Open, LowPublic


Internally, Wikibase uses Language: fetchLanguageName which in turn uses Language: fetchLanguageNamesUncached ...which loads language names from various sources. Every time an item is loaded from Wikidata, it will place a fallback language behind the label if it is not available in the current language.

The idea is to add "nederlandsk" to MediaWiki list.

Event Timeline

@Rodejong: Hi! You assigned this task to yourself a while ago. Could you maybe share a status update? Are you still working (or still plan to work) on this task?
If you do not plan to work on this task anymore, please remove yourself as assignee (via Add Action...Assign / Claim in the dropdown menu) so in theory, others could work on it. Thanks!

I would have liked to, to continue. But due differences of opinion, the Danish Wikipedia colleagues have worked against almost everything, and finally banned me outright, as well as the admin who supported me. So eventhough I would like to, I can't.
For the Danish Wikipedia people it's more important to keep things as they were, as "we always have done." It's the Danish culture, to go against everything progressive. So I will resign this project, but I hope that someone else will take this up, as Holland is not the country, which it isn't in any of the other Scandinavian languages either.

Kind regards,
Robert de Jong

Uhm, I am sorry to hear that. :( Thanks for the quick reply here.

I suppose we could change this internally, without going through CLDR.

I asked on da-project chat for input

It seems there is no interest in the question. I suggest we align the name in MediaWiki with the label of the item/article title in Wikipedia.

@Amire80 @jhsoby ok for langco?

That's no issue. It can be created when needed.
