        HI all,

         

        i just wanted to add a Sardinian translation to the Delta Chat iOS app (https://delta.chat) - howver, i did not found the language in the list at "Project/Info/Localisations/+" (the list is close to being unusable, btw, horrifying ui

         

        the iso code for Sardinian is "sc".

         

        i added several other languages in the last week, so, in general, i know how it works.

         

        may it be that Sardinian is missing? or added under another name? or have i overseen it?

          I found this:

          In fact, the only localized lan- guage version for Sardinian is MacOS. There is no officially available localized language version of Windows, Android, or iOS.

          www.dldp.eu/sites/default/files/documents/DLDP_Sardinian-Report.pdf

           

          and this, for list of suppoted iOS languages

          www.ibabbleon.com/iOS-Language-Codes-ISO-639.html

           

          If that may help.

              thank you very much - so Xcode only offers languages that are also supported by the iOS system.

               

              https://www.ibabbleon.com/iOS-Language-Codes-ISO-639.html says

              "Technically, your iOS apps can be localized into ANY language, even those not translated by Apple, though users are less likely to select such languages."

               

              but i have no idea how to do this in practise. also, how the user can select the language that is not supported by the system - not sure if the default way will work for that https://support.delta.chat/t/select-non-system-language-on-ios/794

               

              maybe some native speaker using phones in Sardinian have a stance on that.

               

              @Apple maybe you can just add Sardinian language - there are more than 1 million speakers or so, really wondering why this is missing.

                  "Technically, your iOS apps can be localized into ANY language, even those not translated by Apple, though users are less likely to select such languages."

                   

                  I understand like this:

                  you can add the language as a localization language in XCode (I did not check precisely).

                  - is it directly by selecting the language ?

                  - or by manually adding the needed folders ?

                   

                  What is the code for sardinian (equivalent to "en-US" or "fr-FR") ?
