Why is it that the English language names suddenly appear in lower-case? E.g. in {{Gartenlaube (1862)}} the language parameter is displayed as "german". De728631 (talk) 15:31, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

{{language}} is automatically added by {{Book}}, so it should not be added. (We could add an uppercase to the first letter in English, it would aoid that problem but it is not the way the media-wikiwide #language: parser works, so I do not think it is a good idea. It works fine if we add "de" insteade of {{language|de}} in the template. --Zolo (talk) 16:03, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Ah, ok. Thanks for clarifying that. De728631 (talk) 16:38, 18 February 2012 (UTC)


{{language|ka|he}} translating the Georgian language to Hebrew as גאורגית. It should be גאורגית. How can I change it? Geagea (talk) 22:58, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

The translation is from the Common Locale Data Repository of the Unicode Consortium. It is completely independent from Wikimedia and cannot be edited directly, but apparently you can report errors here.--Zolo (talk) 07:12, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I reported an error - http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/ticket/4627 Geagea (talk) 09:34, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Adding a translation of language code[edit]

The language code zh-tw translates to the English 'Chinese (Taiwan)' (e. g. when using it in {{language|zh-tw}}).}}

I would like to add the German translation (should be: 'Chinesisch (Taiwan)'). Can I do this somewhere by myself?
