Denied translation languages - why

Hi all,

From time to time we're getting erroneous requests on Transifex to open up a translation in some particular language.

We actually have all major languages set up, but Transifex allows you to request variant translations. For example, we have ja (Japanese) open and I just denied a request to open ja_jp which specifies the version of Japanese specifically spoken in Japan. Unless I have a lack of understanding in the diversity of this language, even if Japanese is spoken in other countries than Japan, we'd only ever want one version, the canonical ja.

I just wanted to explain this in case people think the denies are rebuffs, it's just us trying to to keep things correctly consolidated.

If a deny is made in error, please mention it here.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
