Hello, An Indian Bengali (language code: bn, country code: in) version of translations have been followed for most of the Desktop/Application projects like GNOME, KDE, XFCE, Mozilla and others and having one for the projects on will help us maintain the consistency across the interfaces.

Thanks Runa

I confirm I've read the request, and will grant it. There are some implications for MediaWiki's L10n that require a considerable amount of restructuring in the "bn" namespace. That's why it may take a while before I actually have the bandwidth to fix this.

Quick list of todos:

  1. Move all from /bn to /bn-BD in database
  2. Change all codes from bn to bn-BD in MediaWiki core and extensions
  3. Move core MessagesBn.php to MessagesBn_BD.php
  4. Add $fallback in MessagesBn.php to bn-BD
  5. Add bn-IN to MediaWiki, with $fallback to bn-BD
  6. Add blacklist on bn in twn settings
  7. Assess impact for other twn supported products and take appropriate action
  8. ...

All this needs to be done within as short a timespan as possible. All together I think it will take me about 4 hours.

Runa, do you still think this is desirable?

I don't think it is necessary to create BN-BD or BN-IN for mediawikia. I am translating mediawiki in the last 4 years and i dont want this. I never seen any discussion about this in Wikipedia and we never need this. We should stay in BN.
