atj and mic[edit]

Can you add atj and mic languages please. I already added a translation in those languages. Thanks, Amqui (talk) 19:57, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

 Done, but both suffer from #language problem. Koumz (talk) 14:01, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Bug with #language[edit]

Hello, are there any news about the #language problem with prevent to display the new languages which are added? This bug exists for 2 years and I saw no amelioration. Is Scribunto is available on species? Maybe we can rewrite the template using lua. Pamputt (talk) 11:18, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

I have no information on this. Koumz (talk) 14:01, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Laz language[edit]

Can you add laz language. Its iso code lzz. Ceas08 (talk) 19:57, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

 Done Koumz (talk) 14:08, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

luo[edit]

Hello. Can you, please, add Luo language (ISO 639-3: luo)? I have a lot of vernacular names in Luo for animals and plants. --Omondi (talk) 13:46, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

@Omondi: There is no Template:Luo up to now. (see for example Template:fr) --Murma174 (talk) 02:46, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
 Done@Omondi and Murma74: I dunno if such a template was needed in 2016, but it is no longer so. Circeus (talk) 03:46, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

Yup'ik (Yugtun)[edit]

Has the ISO 639-3 code esu. Thanks! Umimmak (talk) 15:12, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

 Done @Umimmak: Circeus (talk) 03:58, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

Sylheti[edit]

{{Editprotected}} Hi can you add Sylheti language? Its iso code is syl. Its native name is ꠍꠤꠟꠐꠤ Msasag (talk) 16:07, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

 Done @Msasag: by Tommy Kronkvist Circeus (talk) 03:58, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
@Circeus: Thanks! I think you forgot to added the language's native name, it's ꠍꠤꠟꠐꠤ Msasag (কথা পাতক)

Yami[edit]

ISO is TAO. Thanks Leeheonjin (talk) 21:21, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

 Done @Leeheonjin: Circeus (talk) 03:58, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

ja, zh and zh-han[edit]

Kindly add ja (Japanese) and zh (Chinese). In case if you accept variants, zh-han at least would be handy. Thank you in advance. —Omotecho (talk) 02:12, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done @Omotecho: The template already caters for ja, zh-classical, zh-hans, zh-hant, zh-min-nan, zh-tw, zh-yue and zh. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 17:33, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
Case closed. Thank you for your reply, Andy. --Omotecho (talk) 17:46, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

kxd[edit]

Request to add kxd (Brunei Malay) language. Thank you. Zulfadli51 (talk) 14:10, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

 Done @Zulfadli51: Please will you test it? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 17:29, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

Capitalization[edit]

Just seen Gryllotalpa gryllotalpa. Some languages names are capitalized, some are not. Can it be normalised. --82.126.36.50 14:51, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

I think it's okay now, per the Help:Contents guideline. However please note that (contrary to the other languages) English vernacular names should use "Title Caps" rather than "Sentence caps", and that all German proper nouns should always be capitalised (whether part of a vernacular name or not). –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 18:24, 12 September 2019 (UTC).

Collapsible lists for better legibility[edit]

I suggest we make the "Vernacular names" sections collapsible/expandable so that they wont take up as much space on taxon pages with a large number of vernacular names. See for example Columba livia and Passer domesticus where the "Vernacular names" sections takes up 70% of the pages, or more. Making this change only requires minute additions to the code, e.g. see the {{Nadi}} template.

Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 02:41, 25 November 2019 (UTC).

Agree, but maybe make it possible for the option to leave it uncollapsed? I don't think there is a way for it to trigger if more than X languages are used, but most uses probably don't call for collpasing it. Circeus (talk) 05:38, 25 November 2019 (UTC)

kfr for Kachchi[edit]

Please add kfr for Kachchi (કચ્છી). Thank you! Smettems (talk) 04:46, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

@Smettems: Done. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:32, 25 April 2020 (UTC)
Thank you! Smettems (talk) 12:54, 25 April 2020 (UTC)

Requests[edit]

Request to add:

  • [xwa] Kwaza of Brazil
  • [kmh] Kalam of Papua New Guinea

These languages have extensive ethnobiological reference sources, with many plant and animal names documented.

And how would a proto-language be added, if at all possible? Sagotreespirit (talk) 13:07, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

nia[edit]

Can someone add nia (Nias language)? See Talk:Gracula robusta. Monster Iestyn (talk) 16:04, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Double Sundanese and add some Indonesian local languages[edit]

@Pigsonthewing: Hi Andy, the Sundanese label is shown twice. Could you please delete one of these lines?

-->{{#if:{{{su|}}}|'''{{#language:su}}:''' {{{su}}}<br/>}}<!--

Also, could you please add these language codes from Indonesian local languages? The languages have Wikipedia communities under WMID's support.

  • Balinese (local name: Bali; language code: ban)
  • Minangkabau (local name: Minangkabau; language code: min)
  • Banjar (local name:Banjar ; language code: bjn)
  • Gorontalo (local name: Hulontalo; language code: gor)
  • Toba Batak (local name: Batak Toba; language code: bbc)
  • Madurese (local name: Madhurâ; language code: mad)
  • Nias (local name: Niha; language code: nia)

Thank you in advance.

Wirjadisastra (talk) 04:09, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

@Wirjadisastra: All done; except we need to add labels for "min" and "nia". If I can figure out where! Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 07:48, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
@Pigsonthewing: I'm sorry but I don't get what you mean by labels for "min" & "nia". Are the codes causing any bug? Wirjadisastra (talk) 09:22, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
@Wirjadisastra: There is no bug. You can add names in all of the above languages. If you add the name "Foorbar" in Banjar, the template will display "Banjar: Foobar"; but if you add it in Madurese, it will currently display "mad: Foorbar", and for Nias, "nia: Foorbar". We need to fix these, so that the names of the languages are displayed, instead of their three-letter codes. Apparently this has to be done via Phabricator, so: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T261387 Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 09:36, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
@Wirjadisastra: This is all now resolved, and the ticket closed. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 10:33, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Missing languages: bjs, jam[edit]

missing are bjs and jam, see eg Melicoccus bijugatus--Estopedist1 (talk) 05:52, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Kotava language[edit]

Can you add Kotava language? Its ISO code is "avk". Kotavusik (talk) 21:36, 7 November 2020 (UTC)

Kotava is an international constructed language and have a Wikipedia ( avk.wikipedia.org ). The denomination of plants and animals is well developed in Kotava. Please add Kotava language to Wikispecies. Kotavusik (talk) 08:53, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

cr and oj[edit]

Could Cree and Ojibwe (ISO cr and oj) be added? The vernacular "Moose" (Alces americanus) in particular comes from Algonquian cognates, and it might be helpful for some other North American animals.--Molandfreak (talk) 02:04, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

@Molandfreak: I've added oj, but it has the same labelling issue as described above for mad and nia; hence T277505. cr is already available. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 20:00, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

mnw[edit]

Please add "mnw" for Mon language. --Octahedron80 (talk) 03:03, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

@Octahedron80:  Done. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 11:04, 11 May 2021 (UTC).
