[Task] Add support for nod (Northern Thai) to Wikidata
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Northern Thai isn't supported yet as a language in Wikidata, thus it is not yet possible to add labels in this language. A Wikipedia for this language is already/still in incubator (https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wp/nod).

Do you mean adding links to the Wikipedia in incubator can't be added? That is expected. Or do you mean adding labels and descriptions in that language isn't possible? That should be.

Northern Thai is eligible.. It is not automatically added to Wikidata as a language. Given that it is eligible, it can be added. It needs to be restricted to one script.

This is not much work, the only information I need (despite the ISO 639-3 code which is nod) is the name of the language (in the language itself). If there is no such name that can be agreed upon, we can also use the English name as that's not set in stone. But in general the native name is preferred.

Why no progress for 6 months? Is it really the missing name of the language in the language itself? That can be easily found in the Wikipedia article about the language https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Thai_language - ᨣᩴᩤᨾᩮᩥᩬᨦ.

It doesn't seem to work for monolingual text properties.

It does, if you enter "nod" as the language: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q4115189&type=revision&diff=254194913&oldid=254178333

Sadly the auto completion doesn't suggest "nod", but that's another bug.

That is T78006: [Story] Determine list of available languages in a uniform way, btw.

Oh... that was unexpected behaviour. Are din, nod, ota and rwr (from the list in the file that was edited) the only codes that will actually work even though they look like they won't?

The language code vanishes when editing the statement and the language name isn't displayed in the interface language. Are those also covered by T78006 or should I create new tasks for them?

Yes, only these are working (beyond the fully supported languages, of course).

It's not covered by that, but there might be another bug regarding that.
