Please add the Rangi language to Wikidata because it has a wiktionary on Incubator, and I'd like to populate Wikidata with Rangi content.

Still trying to figure out how to add translations of metadata in other languages to existing wikidata entries. For example, quite apart from entering Rangi language data, I don't seem to be able to add something as useful as a description field for French like "language d'Australie" to https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q10474818 (there are only seven languages which already have data entries in the Label and Description fields). Instructions please?
For now you can only add Rangi content to monolingual statements. Not labels and descriptions. For that you need to check https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/add_Rangi_(lag) on the status
When setting my preferences under https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:Preferences, 'user profile' tag, I can choose 'more language settings', and Kilaangi appears under 'suggested languages'. However, whereas all the other suggestions are defined (e.g. Deutsch as 'German', hrvatski as 'Croatian' etc), Kilaangi appears as 'undefined'. What do I have to do in order for Kilaangi to be defined as 'Rangi'?
That is another problem. This is about adding Rangi as a monolingual language to be used in some properties. What you describe has to do with ULS. You'll need to file a separate bug for that.
Thanks for the explanation (which I partly understood). I'm just a linguist trying to make languages available on the web (of which there must be thousands, both linguists and languages), so it would be nice to make all of this tech stuff a bit more user-friendly for linguists. But in the absence of step-by-step instructions, I'm continuing and trying to figure all of this out. Cheers!
