CLDR Ticket #7704(closed: fixed)

Opened 5 years ago

Last modified 5 months ago

Add K'iche' (and perhaps other Mayan languages) to the existing CLDR locales

Reported by: Ryan Kaldari <rkaldari@…> Owned by: emmons
Component: other Data Locale: All
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Recently the code for the language family "Mayan languages" (myn) was added to the language list. We do not, however, include a single actual Mayan language in the list currently. At the very least, we should list K'iche' (quc), which has an estimated 2.3 million speakers. Other commonly spoken Mayan languages include:
Q'eqchi' (kek) - 800,000
Yucatec Maya (yua) - 770,000
Mam (mam) - 540,000

Translations for these languages can be found in Wikidata:

Just to clarify, this is not a request to create new locales in CLDR.

quc for K'iche' is already present as a language code in CLDR 26, and a seed locale is available. As Agustin mentioned already, Microsoft plans to provide more complete data for this locale in the 27 time frame.
