Language details: Lozi (Silozi, loz ISO 639 2/ISO 639 3)
Bantu language spoken in Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. 500,000 native speakers. I know a Wikipedia doesn't exist yet, but I think it would be better starting with a Wiktionary because of the low number of native speakers. I speak a little bit Lozi and I really want this Wiktionary to come alive. I'm searching for natives and hope to get this done in short time. Interface translations won't be a such a big problem I think. SF-Language 12:35, 19 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Arguments in favor
According to this over 80% of the used messages is translated. Most remaining messages are not necessary to translated. Not much used messages, admin-messages and untranslatable messages. It's better to create the wiki first and then let natives and near-natives who'll see the wiki attack the interfacetranslations and finish it. --OosWesThoesBes 17:06, 8 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Support and willing to contribute: Active test, I'll go searching for some natives.
The required interface messages (500-most used) are translated. --OosWesThoesBes 09:39, 21 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
support Although I don't speak a single word Lozi I can contribute by adding Dutch translations. -Markvondeegel 11:29, 10 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Currently 94.39% of the most used MediaWiki messages 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 12:59, 13 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
