A request was made for the localisation of the Karachay-Balkar language at translatewiki.net. As this was a new language, some technical bits had to be done, and Iltever was given translator rights.
In record time, within a day, all the localisation necessary for a first project were completed. Only after the localisation was the language added to the "Request for new languages" list. The request has the status of "open" because the language committee has to consider the eligibility of the request, but it is likely that this is another Wikipedia that is waiting to happen soon.
