[wikimedia/portals@master] Changing name for Northern Sami on www.wikipedia.org portal

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/386354

Thank you for this contribution.

The language names on the www.wikipedia.org portal are actually taken from translatewiki now.
I've updated the message from "Sámegiella" to "Davvisámegiella" on translatewiki here:
https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special:Translate&filter=&group=wikimedia-portals&task=custom&language=se&action=translate&optional=1
and this change will be reflected in our next portal deploy.

@Jdrewniak Ah, I wasn't aware of that (obviously). Thanks for fixing! Setting to resolved then.

Re-opening this - as we did the change after the last update from translatewiki (Oct 23). It'll be picked up and put into production during our next push to production.

@Nikerabbit - this update isn't in the latest localization updates, can you check on it's status? Thanks!

The reason is that the language does not meet the default export threshold of 35%. The question is what should we do? Lower the threshold for portals?

How many additional languages would we add if we lowered the threshold to, say, 30%?

Ahhh, that makes sense.

@jhsoby would you be able to do more of the translations for Davvisámegiella so that the overall prevelance of the translations can be brought into the Portal?

Here's the link to all the untranslated words and phrases: https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special:Translate&group=wikimedia-portals&language=se&filter=%21translated&action=translate

@debt Done by translating simple strings I could do with a dictionary, and strings that wouldn't change when translated, so it's at 41 % now.

That's great, thanks @jhsoby! It should get picked up and released into production with our next push. :)

@debt The order is still wrong, though. It should appear in front of "Deitsch" in the list.

debt moved this task from Done to Needs code review on the Discovery-Portal-Sprint board.

Whoops - we'll get this fixed!

This has been fixed now - it ended up being a small text update had been missed in the translation files.
