#Wikidata - #language support in action

Plattmakers is a dictionary for the Low Saxon language. It is also an item in Wikidata. It has a label in in Low Saxon and all the other labels used have been added as well.

It is really gratifying to notice when work is done in "yet another language" and see how effective it is. Currently there are 23,404 articles and 33,750 labels in Low Saxon. One neat trick is that they are adding labels for people's names as they are written in exactly the same way in many other languages.
Thanks,
