Labels for languages missing in Wikidata
Open, Needs TriagePublic


In Wikidata on items, the left column of the description area (where labels, descriptions and aliases are added) shows the language. With my settings for Dutch, most of the languages there are in Dutch, but some are not and shown in English instead. (expand example + click All entered languages/Alle ingevoerde talen) Two examples are:

  • Brazilian Portuguese -> Braziliaans-Portugees
  • Belarusian (Taraškievica orthography) -> Wit-Russisch (Tarasjkevitsa orthografie)

Where can I change this? Or can this be changed?

Brazilian Portuguese -> Braziliaans-Portugees

This should be fixed in CLDR, as pt-br exists in CLDR but does not have a Dutch name

Belarusian (Taraškievica orthography) -> Wit-Russisch (Tarasjkevitsa orthografie)

Either add it to CLDR, or add to a file (to be created) LocalNamesNl.php at
