CLDR provides key building blocks for software to support the world’s languages, with the largest and most extensive standard repository of locale data available. This data is used by a wide spectrum of companies for their software internationalization and localization, adapting software to the conventions of different languages for such common software tasks. It is a building block of python babel which is used by SecureDrop. When something is missing from CLDR it follows that SecureDrop is therefore not capable of displaying the required language, even if the translations are available.
The following process is a guide for people willing to help improve the CLDR database in the three main individual codes:
@erinm@brandones we finally know what should be done, when and where. It felt a little like walking through a thick jungle during weeks but we made friends on the way Maybe people from Localizationlab with a focus on languages that do not receive much attention will benefit from our experience ?
Would you be so kind as to provide me with a Submitter ID so that I can use the Survey Tool ?
Thanks in advance
with a kind reply from the person responsible for opening accounts:
Hello. Thank you for your interest. An account has been created for you and the system should send you login information. The Survey Tool is currently “read only” between releases. You should receive notification when it is open for data submission for the next release.
