#translatewiki.net is not a stamp collection

The group statistics show all the supported languages that are 336 languages from Abkhazian to Zulu. Typically a new language is added when someone requests another Wikipedia. As localisation is a prerequisite before a new Wikipedia is actually created.


Having so many languages is a mixed blessing. When it comes to bragging rights it is great but we do not want all that "red" in the group statistics; it is the "green" that makes us happy. Regularly there are requests for new languages and success is most likely when it is a native speaker who comes to do the work.
