Fallback to hsb

According to some study, hsb and dsb are 86 % mutually intelligible in written form. Instead of showing a large part of the interface in English, when a translation is missing in one language it would be nice to show the translation to the other (language fallback). Do you translators agree?

Yes, definitely. Speakers of Lower Sorbian should generally understand Upper Sorbian way better than English.

This is promising. I would agree with the suggestion.

I strongly agree.

I am not a native. I have never lived in Lusatia. However, I think this is a very good idea. A native speaker of one language probably should have some contact with the other language, as there is one common organisation representing interests of Sorbs as a minority in Germany. I cannot remember any case of a translation being offered when in a radio/TV programme a speaker of the 'other' language was interviewed.

Thank you, this information about interviews on TV is very useful.

Documentation of plural rules

I have drafted a list of Mediawiki plural rules for all languages. I would be grateful if a translator could check that the rules for Lower Sorbian are correctly recorded in the list. If I have made a mistake please go ahead and correct it.

It could also be useful to any future new translators for Lower Sorbian to be able to read notes on using plural, especially Mediawiki plural, on your portal or a sub-page of the portal. I note that the various plural systems used by projects have different rules for Lower Sorbian.
