As per langcom discussion on WMCON, the code hyw will be requested for w:Western_Armenian and we are sure it will be approved, but only at the earliest in December. But the users would already like to translate into it. Pinging user:Raymond.

Thank you, we are well aware of this subtag which was introduced as an expedient with the knowledge that a formal language code would be required.

All right,

  • A language code from ISO 639-3 or the Ethnologue website (for example 'de') - hyw [proposed]
  • The language name in English and in its own language (for example 'German – Deutsch (de)') - Western Armenian - արեւմտահայերէն
  • Is the language RTL or LTR (written from right to left or left to right) - LTR
  • If the language is commonly written in more than one script, please say in which script the language should be enabled. Other variants can be enabled as and when translators for those variants volunteer. - Armn only
  • (For MediaWiki) Should the language fall back to another language other than English? If so which? - Fallback should be to hy.

Once the code has been approved, it can be added. For now, this request will be denied.
