Hi MinecraftAustralia!

I can do it, but I have a few questions:

  • Are you going to bring in people who will actually translate into these languages?
  • There are several languages called "Kriol" in our databases. Can you please give an unambiguous name?
  • Are there any other websites in these languages? Or content in these languages on any other websites?

Thanks! :)

Hi, sorry I replied a bit late. The Kriol is called Australian Kriol or Roper River Kriol. There aren't tons of website in these languages but neither is there in half the languages on here so yeah. There are a couple of websites in Kriol.

Thanks!

> The Kriol is called Australian Kriol or Roper River Kriol.

How is this name written in the language itself? This looks written in standard English.

> There aren't tons of website in these languages but neither is there in half the languages on here so yeah. There are a couple of websites in Kriol.

Do you have links?

And finally, are you going to bring in people who will actually translate into these languages?

Hi,

You still haven't answered an important question: are you going to bring in people who will actually translate into these languages?

The policy on the page Translatewiki.net languages says that one of the conditions of languages to be enabled is that that there should be at least one person willing to translate into the language.
