A big boost for the #MediaWiki localisation in #Farsi

There was a big boost at #translatewiki.net of the localisations of the extensions used by the Wikimedia projects. Several new people started localising and within a day it grew from 66% to 87%. This is quite impressive. Farsi will be the 20th language in the top 50 languages of the world to have virtually complete localisation in a Wikimedia context.

The reason; possibly the message came through that the language committee does not consider any request as long as the localisation is not complete. Whenever a request is considered, the first step is always the current state of the localisations.

With a bit of luck, the fa.wikinews.org will be created at the same time as the ko.wikinews.org. That is, luck for our Iranian friends.
Thanks,
