Kurdish Language Name Problem in v.2.25

At this point, I cannot provide a definitive timeline. I would suggest that you create the necessary guidance for your end staff to clarify how to deal with this.

Once i hear back from the dev team, i will try and provide you with an update.

Best regards,

Hi Jason,

thanks for your fast response.

Could you let me know when it is planned to be done to inform the local staff?

Hi Antonia,

I will discuss with the development team, but as you point out, its more of a problem of the underlying libraries themselves, which do not have a corresponding translation of the official ISO code for Kudish Sorani. We would need to add an enhancement I think to use the equivalent icu4j classes to get the language names for these codes which are not part of the core Java Locale classes.

Dear developers and translation team,

in the upgrade process from v.2.22 to v.2.25 we encountered the fallowng 2 problems with the translation.

  • the the language Kurdish, created especially for our implementation, is not more visible as Kurdish in the User’s Interface language, but with its ISO code “ckb”. All users with assigned Kurdish language have not assigned any language and and the system default language appears. If I assign manually the “ckb” language to the user, the Kurdish translation of the interface appears.

But for the final users “ckb” is not comprehensible name.

Could you change the name to Kurdish or Kurdish Sorani the language code (ckb - ISO 639-3)

for the v. 2.25 and all new versions.

I know that if not fixed in a stable mode in the source, the problem will appears in any new version, because it is not part of the underlying libraries (GTK and the Java libraries) which provides these names, as specified by Jason Pickering in a mail (May 1st 2016) and we could not make it change for the moment.

Thanks in advance for your help.
