In mozilla-central we have a list of language names https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/global/languageNames.properties We should verify if: a) We support more language names that CLDR, and request those fields b) Upstream translations where possible c) Open bugs to discuss divergent translations, and tickets to CLDR when necessary.
Adding region names to the scope https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/locales/en-US/chrome/global/regionNames.properties
Summary: [tracking] Verify language names in CLDR → [tracking] Verify language and region names in CLDR
@zibi I'm looking at https://github.com/unicode-cldr/cldr-localenames-full/tree/master/main/en (languages, territories). Is that the right place? There are two cases: * Data is available in Mozilla but non in CLDR. * Values diverge between Mozilla and CLDR. Note that region names were changed quite recently (bug 1203171).
Missing languages in CLDR bh: Bihari I can't find this http://www-01.sil.org/iso639-3/documentation.asp?id=bh https://www.ethnologue.com/language/bh son: Songhay http://www-01.sil.org/iso639-3/documentation.asp?id=son wen: Sorbian http://www-01.sil.org/iso639-3/documentation.asp?id=wen Both son and wen are collective languages, I wonder if that's the reason for not being here. Missing regions in CLDR: QM: Midway Islands QS: Bassas da India QU: Juan de Nova Island QW: Wake Island QX: Glorioso Islands QZ: Akrotiri XA: Ashmore and Cartier Islands XB: Baker Island XC: Coral Sea Islands XD: Dhekelia XE: Europa Island XG: Gaza Strip XH: Howland Island XJ: Jan Mayen XL: Palmyra Atoll XM: Kingman Reef XP: Paracel Islands XQ: Jarvis Island XR: Svalbard XS: Spratly Islands XT: Tromelin Island XU: Johnston Atoll XV: Navassa Island XW: West Bank Note about regions https://wiki.mozilla.org/Lists_of_Countries_and_Regions https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/mozilla.governance/territory%7Csort:date/mozilla.governance/CZ_He_ul63s/bVu6kktqYDEJ

Yeah, that's data up to date with CLDR 32.0
Explanation of the file content. > Missing language names in CLDR Compares the content of languageNames.properties to https://github.com/unicode-cldr/cldr-localenames-full/blob/master/main/en/languages.json And reports language codes that are not available. > Different values Compare the actual English name for each language between Mozilla and CLDR. > Missing region names in CLDR Compares the content of regionNames.properties to https://github.com/unicode-cldr/cldr-localenames-full/blob/master/main/en/territories.json > Different values Compare the actual English name for each region/territory between Mozilla and CLDR. > Locales not supported by CLDR Compare the current list of hg repositories (not just shipping locales, so includes also obsolete languages, or brand new ones) with the list of languages available in CLDR. To determine the latter, I look at the folders available in https://github.com/unicode-cldr/cldr-localenames-full/tree/master/main At first I tried looking at https://github.com/unicode-cldr/cldr-core/blob/master/supplemental/languageData.json#L8 But it turns out it contains data for locales that are actually not available (e.g. xh). I failed to find a list of seed locales, beyond getting the list of folders from https://www.unicode.org/repos/cldr/trunk/seed/main/ If a locale is missing from CLDR but available as seed, it's noted. > Missing locales in languageNames.properties Compare the current list of hg repositories (as before) to the locale codes available in languageNames.properties This is basically to avoid issues like bug 1263437. It's OK for that list to not be empty, we have plenty of locales that start and never make it to builds.
