Description Shinjiman 2007-01-12 07:16:28 UTC
Hi the developers,

would the developers please update the Names.php file that fixes the incorrect
localised names in the $wgLanguageNames array? thanks.

The claims shows that:
zh-cn != 中文(简体)
zh-sg != 中文(简体)
zh-hk != 中文(繁體)
zh-tw != 中文(繁體)

they should be corrected as:
zh-cn != 中文(中国)
zh-sg != 中文(新加坡)
zh-hk != 中文(香港)
zh-tw != 中文(台灣)

and also the patch add two extra tags "zh-hans" and "zh-hant", which they are
defined at RFC 4646.

regards
Shinjiman

This is the patch for the bug, note that it also fixes part of bug 8217.
Comment 2 Shinjiman 2007-01-12 07:19:31 UTC
they should be corrected as:
zh-cn = 中文(中国)
zh-sg = 中文(新加坡)
zh-hk = 中文(香港)
zh-tw = 中文(台灣)

There's typo at comment 1. The texts should be corrected like this.

The updated patch that have better comments to explain the language tags.
Comment 6 Raimond Spekking 2007-04-12 14:38:36 UTC
Why adding zh-hans and zh-hant? As far as I can see it's neither a valid
ISO-Code nor a Wikimedia project code.
Comment 7 Jon Harald Søby 2007-04-12 14:55:39 UTC
zh-hans and zh-hant are valid composite ISO codes; zh is ISO 639-1 for Chinese
(as you probably know), while Hans and Hant are ISO 15924 codes for the writing
systems Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
Comment 8 Raimond Spekking 2007-04-12 15:11:21 UTC
As per discussion on irc applied with r21200:

Shinjiman: the zh-Hans/zh-Hant names will going to used in the LanguageZh.php
for part of the Chinese Conversion reform. See my user page in the Chinese
Wikipedia (http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Shinjiman/ZhConversion) for details
(sorry this page is written in Chinese), and we'd a rather major discussions for
the Chinese Conversion system, see
http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:%E5%85%B3%E4%BA%8E%E6%94%B9%E9%9D%A9%E5%AD%97%E4%B
Comment 9 Shinjiman 2007-04-12 15:30:22 UTC
The revision r21201 by raymond is to correct some problems which disclosed with the 
single quotes rather than double quotes, which was previously fixed in r21200.
Comment 10 Shinjiman 2007-04-12 21:36:03 UTC
Sorry bothering for the committers again, as shown in the IANA language-subtag-
registry, the part of zh-cn which shows Chinese (PRC), however it was a mistake to 
put "中文(中国)" <- "Chinese (China)" to the language names array, by the correct 
form, it should be renamed to "中文(中国大陆)" <- "Chiense (PRC)" to avoid the "China" 
problem.
