Sascha added a comment to T222426: Add monolingual language codes rm-rumgr, rm-surmiran, rm-sursilv, rm-sutsilv, rm-vallader, rm-puter.

The codes are valid (and registered) IETF BCP47 language codes.

Sascha added a comment to T210293: Add language codes rm-rumgr, rm-sursilv, rm-surmiran, rm-sutsilv, rm-vallader, rm-puter for Lexemes.

@GerardM Yes, this request is merely about supporting Wikidata *content* in those language variants, eg. allowing people to enter Sursilvan usage examples for a Sursilvan lexeme (see T222426). No need to translate the *user interface* to Sursilvan, Vallader etc.

Sascha added a comment to T222420: Wikidata links to Commons should appear in Special:WhatLinksHere.

Hm... in the sidebar on Wikimedia Commons (see screenshot), would it perhaps make sense to replace the link to Special:WhatLinksHere by a link to Special:GlobalUsage? Currently, there seems to be a usability/UX issue: the feature is already implemented (thanks for the kind explanation on this bug, I had no idea!). However, people may might never come across the Special:GlobalUsage unless they already know that it exists. Hence the suggestion to remove “What links here” from the sidebar and replace it by “Global usage” which seems to be a superset. (There’s a risk of cluttering the user experience when the sidebar has too many links).

Is there anything specific I should do so that people can enter usage examples for Sursilvan lexemes, and likewise for lexemes in the various other Romansh variants? I’ll gladly file more tickets if it helps; just tell me what to do.

Hm, adding usage examples (and probably similar properties) doesn’t seem to work yet. Try adding the sentence “Ils tgauns vivan dalla naschientscha naven ensemen cullas nuorsas.” as usage example (P5831) in language “rm-sursilv” for tgaun (L45642); see screenshot.

Sascha added a comment to T124758: [Story] Show all available languages in monolingual text value's suggester.

Sure, but it will take a while until the next official release of CLDR so you'd have to read the CLDR data from the development branch ("trunk"). I do wonder, though, if you could read the IANA registry in addition to CLDR and use IANA as fallback for the English names when CLDR has no data yet. Then, you would immediately get an English name for every language with an ISO 639 or IETF BCP 47 code, so you'd add support for a couple thousand languages at once.

@GerardM, is there anything I can do to help with this ticket? There’s a sizable Romansh dictionary whose data can be donated to Wikidata, but this is currently blocked on this ticket. (Try an exact search for a few German words, eg. “Hund” or “Gelbsucht”, to see how the words are different in various variants of the Romansh language).

Sascha updated subscribers of T208641: Improve categorisation for languages that do not have ISO 639-3 code.

For languages that have no language code yet, perhaps Lingua Libre could use “mis-x-Q12345” (where Q12345 would be the Wikidata item for the language of the pronunciation audio). That would be a syntactically valid IETF BCP 47 tag, and you wouldn’t lump unrelated languages into the same category. Once the language does get a code, some bot could change the categories of uploaded files on Wikimedia Commons. @GerardM, what do you think?

Sascha added a comment to T208641: Improve categorisation for languages that do not have ISO 639-3 code.

Have you considered using IETF BCP 47 language tags instead of ISO 639-3? Every language with an ISO code also has an IETF code (usually the same, since IETF draws in ISO 639 among others). But other than ISO 639, you can do finer-grained distinctions with IETF tags. That’s why all the internet standards (such as HTTP, HTML, XML) use IETF BCP 47 instead of ISO 639. For example, Brazilian Portuguese, Sursilvan and Zürich German have IETF language tags but no ISO code. If LinguaLibre is asked to support languages without an IETF code, you can request the addition of a language tag.

Sascha added a comment to T210311: Add monolingual language code ccp for Chakma.

Agree. The Chakma language is sometimes written in other scripts than the Chakma writing system, such as Bengali or Latin, but this seems to be rare. (In the future, other writing systems will probably get used more rarely than today, because support for the Chakma writing system is getting rolled out to modern computer operating systems only now). In the Unicode CLDR project, we’ve therefore made Cakm the default script for language ccp; see the line <likelySubtag from="ccp" to="ccp_Cakm_BD"/> in likelySubtags.xml. Also, in Unicode CLDR, all Chakma translations are currently kept in the Chakma writing system; we haven’t received any requests to support (in CLDR) the Chakma language ccp in other writing systems than Cakm. Just a data point; not sure if/how this matters for Wikimedia.
