Creating a CLDR for Dutch Low Saxon

Weeks: Data Xpath:


I'd like to create a CLDR for Dutch Low Saxon, but I'm unsure how. On Wikipedia the language names etc. have not yet been translated, and I'd like to start translating these.

I'm a little unsure how to go about this one, since we already have a seed locale for nds as "Low German". Are "Low German" and "Dutch Low Saxon" the same language, or not? We already have quite a bit of unconfirmed data in the seed locale for nds, and I'm not sure how much of this ( if any ) would apply to Low Saxon.... Please advise.

Low German and Low Saxon are in fact the same language. It is spoken in the Netherlands (called: Low Saxon) and in Germany (mostly called: Low German), on both sides of the border the language has been strongly influenced by the national language, i.e. spelling and vocabulary. This causes a divide between Dutch and German Low Saxon, which is why we created a Dutch Low Saxon Wikipedia and a German Low Saxon Wikipedia. These wikis aren't linked together (except for the fact the they list the Dutch or German variety of Low Saxon at the top of the menu "Other languages", and they both feature each others "Article of the month"). Dutch is the back-up language for Dutch Low Saxon (for German Low Saxon, German is the back-up language).
