Request for adding/enabling new language: ISO 639-3 sje (bidumsámegiella, Pite Saami) (Portal:sje)
As a language worker for Pite Saami, one of the editors of the Pite Saami incubator project and the main editor of the Pite Saami dictionary app BidumBágo, I would like to request that the language ISO 639-3 sje be opened for editing. There is an official orthography as of August 2019; the script is Latin with a few diacritic marks (á, ä, ö) and the special letters ŋ, đ, ŧ (as well as æ and ø being used as variants of the official ä and ö.

Hi Olve Utne
Thanks you for your patience. I've forwarded this ticket to our staff who handles these category of requests, and they will respond here soon.
Sorry about the delay! I usually do these configuration changes and I was busy with some Stuff In Real Life :)
It's now available!
Thank you very much! :-) Translating to Pite Sami comes up as a choice now. However, I still get the message posted as a screen capture in my OP when trying to translate some of the messages. Any way to find out why that's happening? (This doesn't seem to be a problem now.)
Thank you very much! :-) Is it OK if I take away the "orange alert" from the Pite Sami portal page, since the language is now (mostly) enabled?
TL;DR: Don't worry, it's good! :)
You've been translating very quickly and this language has passed the threshold of 13% of translated messages (see Translating:MediaWiki). It is now officially exported from translatewiki to the MediaWiki source code repository. Therefore, it no longer needs to be listed separately in translatewiki's local LanguageSettings.php file, and it takes the configuration from the global language configuration file in core MediaWiki.
