Create parser function yielding adjectives for language names.
Open, LowPublic

Description

In message MediaWiki:Logentry-translationreview-group/ksh, we should have an adjective version of language names. The wording, e.g. "French translation" is much preferred over "translation to French" in this context, but we do not have a way currently to compute adjectives from language codes.

Sounds like {{GRAMMAR}} to me.

Sounds like {{GRAMMAR}} to me.

Meaning that you would create a database of name->adjective conversion in the grammar rules (which seems CLDR job)? Or that you'd support it only for languages where this is just an inflection issue with some universal rules?

What is requested here is highly language specific, those things usually belong to {{GRAMMAR}} or are not done at all in favor of coming with language independent solution.
