Modify {{#language:ku}}: Kurdî should be written lower-case instead
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Hello! The Magic words {{#language:ku}} or {{#language:ku-Latn}} gives a result in upper case (Kurdî and Kurdî (latînî)).
However, the names of languages in Kurdish, unlike English, are written in lower case.

It is not very important but it becomes annoying when it is used automatically for the translation of the word "Kurdish" in a sentence on (example).

I therefore ask if it is possible that the word "Kurdî" is displayed in lowercase :
{{#language:ku}} --> kurdî
{{#language:ku-Latn}} --> kurdî (latînî)

I wondering if it was possible to create a script like this for the Kurdish language without using the CLDR. It allows among other things to have the display of languages inKurdishin the interwikis.

A request for the CLDR has been made here or here for T48235, but for reasons that I do not know nothing has happened for several years (does the CLDR have the capacity to take care of all languages? this can explain some things).
