I have drafted a new help page, Translatewiki.net languages, for review and improvement. I am hoping that this page would form part of the translatewiki.net help and documentation, if it is good enough. It is mainly a collection of things already on FAQ and other places drawn together into one page. What do you think?

Nice! Did you plan this to be linked from Special:SupportedLanguages?

Two-letter codes are preferred over three-letter codes, if both exist and are equivalent.

There is nothing special in translatable pages, except changing them generates work for translators :)

Yes, I agree, it is best not to change pages already set up for translation. That is why I thought that it might be possible to change the existing link at 'fallback language', without changing the text. Would it be possible to change the link using a bot, so that there is no extra work for translators?

If neither of my suggestions are very satisfactory, it doesn't matter; I'm sure we'll find a good place for this page eventually.

I have changed the link on Special:SupportedLanguages from Translating:Process to Translatewiki.net_languages. The link is on the site-specific summary and so it is only visible to visitors who have English as their interface language. Is there a way to make this visible to others?

Aren't language fallbacks working?

I have tried the page in Firefox 13.0.1 and Firefox 14.0.1 for all 4 skins and in internet explorer also. The messages supportedlanguages-summary and supportedlanguages-colorlegend always appear, but the supportedlanguages-localsummary appears in the English interface only (tested for cy and sw).
