This link @Susannaanas found is also great: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Identify_problems_with_adding_new_languages_into_Wikidata

Here's an example of the Wikimedia Commons category page language selectors above for languages that have already been added elsewhere, but are still showing ISO codes in Commons:
A minor nitpicky issue with the Ume Saami version; the autonym has been split into two different words, when it should all be one word like it has been when entering the word in this screenshot (and like it's written in the table in the ticket description):
@Nikki : that's Finnish, yes. And I'm not sure how I managed to confuse autonyms with the name in Finnish (or in Northern Saami, which is what I usually use the UI in). I'll have to look into what's in CLDR again in these languages (and the other Saami languages too). Thanks!

Funnily enough they show up correctly in the caption box in Commons.

Oh I will so be using this this weekend!
@Urbanecm : thanks!

UI translations are done at Translatewiki.net. There's some information at https://translatewiki.net/wiki/FAQ#How_to_add_a_new_language but I'm not sure exactly which languages they allow.
It's not a technical requirement. It's a process requirement by the Language committee. So this particular thing doesn't require any technical work, but a policy change.
For Wikidata, since labels form part of the UI,

Any idea when this is going to start working? It'd be really nice to be able to use these languages in Wikidata right now for the Wikimania Menu Challenge that's going on.

Thanks, @Lea_Lacroix_WMDE !

I've removed sju, sjd, and rmf out of this task as redundant. Thanks!
This shouldn't be time-consuming to do, since this has been done recently for other Saami languages, for example, part of T222309.
@Urbanecm : they could be divided up into separate tickets if need be.

@Tulsi_Bhagat : I would appreciate it if you did it. Thanks.

I've added the templates for all of the Saami languages except for Kemi.

It was already possibly to use Southern and Northern Saami for captions, and now Inari and Skolt Saami can be too. The remaining Saami languages still cannot be used for captions as of today.

This is wonderful, thank you all so much! This opens up so many new possibilities for us!

I riffed off of Jon Harald's list of people at OFF and made one for Riddu Riđđu 2019. I've added the link to the talk page of the Women In Red project in the English Wikipedia. The people in the list with entries in Wikidata still need to be entered there; I'll try and get around to it asap.

Wonderful, thank you (en), takkâ (smn) ja späʹsseb (sms)! :)
@Cparle: thank you, this is great news! Any ideas on how long it will take them to make Commons proper?

I'm still getting the sms and smn version in the summary box in Commons:

You're welcome @DanielleJWiki ! It was quite fun to do so thanks for putting it up.

And two other linguists recommended using Cyrillic:
(In the parent task, we have the same problem for other Saami languages too. If those could be done as well, I'd really appreciate it.)
Here's some screenshots of what we've come across:
