New languages

riquillers qa Qatar

I see that a lot of beta languages are being added. What new languages should we be looking forward to? Should I hold out hope that Tagalog will be added?

    I don't think we're gonna get any new languages for now. In my view.

    I remember that Zoran mentioned that there are a few languages that are almost ready to be released. Of course since material for new beta languages hinges on that effort of members to get lessons transcribed and audio recorded, the time it takes for it to be ready can take a while.

    As far as I can remember I haven't seen anyone offered to transcribe and record audio for Tagalog.

    @riquillers Hopefully more languages coming really soon. Unfortunately Tagalog for now is not one of them.

    @chytran We did actually added lot of new languages lately. I'll remind you that we have added Farsi, Belarusian, Malay, Indonesian, and few days ago Traditional Chinese and Cantonese as two separate slots.

    Thai is also very close and I think we will have it available within next few days. Some other languages are also coming soon - Gujarati, Bulgarian and a few more. So we are constantly working on adding new languages.

        We are trying to get enough content for Vietnamese too. Not sure when, but we will add it for sure.

      @Zoran, let me remind Belarusian was going to become a fully supported language some months ago but it is still in the list of beta languages.

        Arabic is available for a while too. You haven't noticed it? :)

            There is no any real difference in functionality between fully supported and beta languages. But we will move Arabic and Belarusian to fully supported, since both languages have enough content at the moment.

      Any Thai update? As I mentioned on the other thread if content was needed I can find someone to get some translated with any luck. Otherwise eagerly awaiting its release. Thanks.

        We do have enough content ready to lauch Thai. We are working on it and I think we will have it up on the site probably next week or eventually a week after that.

          How's Thai going? I am checking every day to see if it's already on the list:)

              So anything happening with Thai in the end? Guess there's some problem with it as it's been many months and no sign yet. Oh well.

            I'm checking almost every day to see if Arabic and Belarusian are moved from the Beta to the main list of languages.

          How come 5 months ago it was due to be ready but now it needs another 20-25 stories adding? Not criticising by the way, just curious. Any chance the 20 stories you already have could be uploaded anyway as a starting point?

            Unfortunately volunteer who did first 20 stories and promised to do 20 more never delivered them, so we are still stuck on 20 stories. But I'll see if I can try someone to finish Thai.

            Anyway, we have some new languages coming to Beta really soon! ;)

            May 2019
            • davidrobinson gb United Kingdom

              Could we not just have the 20 for now? If people see that its an option it might be easier to get more started.

            • pjim gb United Kingdom

              Yeah would be great if we could get the language up somehow, get them finished or whatver. Only Thai I'm personally interested in (well maybe Vietnamese at some point) as it's useful to me and there is a lack of Thai materials generally.

              " we have some new languages coming to Beta really soon! ;) "

              Is a hint on what languages those might be possible?

      Is Thai, Hindi, Urdu, Serbian, Icelandic or Swahili going to go up anytime soon?

    OK, the beta languages are very important and if I use many days this methods so I get a best increase in my learn.

    I really want the Celtic languages added but I guess someone needs to create the content first. I have excellent lessons, unfortunately copyrighted that I've imported into the English language slot,, but I wonder if I'm just messing up the dictionaries for people. Are there plans to create a "Custom" language slot so we can study unsupported languages with our own custom dictionaries?

      That would actually be a great idea.

      I wanted this too, but I believe there was an issue with that.

      That would great. I need to do that with my girlfriends' Chinese language!

    Zoran told me that Hindi is another language planned and it should be available in March or April of next year.

  • FattyLumpkin gb United Kingdom

    I would love to see some African languages on here - especially Swahili - Hausa and Somali would also be amazing. I really would love to learn Hindi as well and please please let there be Welsh!

    Also if we are adding Hindi please don't leave Urdu out!

      You personally may translate anzthing if you can. Another way is to find friends who can make some translations.

      I remember that someone on another thread mentioned that Lingq is in the process of adding Hindi (spring 2019). This is just a rumor and generally when Lingq staff says that X language will be added within Y amount of time it usally means 1-3 months form that.

      In terms of African languages, I agree.

          All we need is content guys, we can't add a new language without any content available for it.

          Hindi is not yet close, I am affraid. I had volunteers working on Mini Stories in Hindi and I hoped to have them delivered and language ready for Beta soon, but I haven't hear back from volunteers in a while.

          Good news are that Bulgarian is in process of being added and will be available soon. Also, Thai and Swahili are next in line and are almost good to go.

            " Also, Thai and Swahili "

            That makes me happy.

            I was suspecting you might have technical problems with parsing Thai script, so to hear that you're more or less waiting for content is actually very good news:)
