"I do not know the language" in more languages

When you have a user of every #Wikipedia, it is fairly obvious that on most Wikipedias you do not know anything of that language. When I provided this information on the Wikipedia in Haitian, the message came out in French.

This was wrong on many levels particularly because the localisation of the Babel extension in Haitian is hardly recent. It pre-dates the current release of MediaWiki.

The good news is that this bug has been fixed. We know that it affected the Babel extension but it would not surprise us when it affects other extensions as well.

When you find all of a sudden many more localisations available for your language, you can assume that it is because bug 33768 has been fixed by Roan.
