FYI Localisation is a precondition to final approval. Given that only 72% of the most important messages have been localised at this time, it falls short from what is expected of second projects for a language. Expected is localisation for all MediaWiki messages and all the extensions used in the WMF. GerardM 12:28, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Great progress can be observed with 100.00% 95.07% 78.62% for the relevant statistics :) Thanks, GerardM 07:03, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Currently 76.34% of the MediaWiki messages and 55.91% of the messages of the extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation projects have been localised. Localisation of these messages is a requirement before your request is finally assessed. This is the recent localisation activity for your language. Thanks, GerardM 13:46, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
