Well, it’s definetely written in an asian language with lots of inports from russian.
What I can do is get in touch with the Library of the President of the Rupublic of Sakha (library at gov.sakha.ru) and ask whether the language used really is sakha. But possibly we should ask the guys, first. I find no evidence of Sakha language being recognized by local political organs, and we might meet some forms of bias in the answer. Anyway, it’s quite alive and well, as you can here from the radio recordings like : http://doydu.sakhaopenworld.org/modules/debaser/player.php?id=3335 (BTW, I like the sound of it)
I believe the main the reason that the Sakha incubator isn't really
big yet is because they have focused their efforts on localisation. We
have already conditionally approved their Wikipedia, and I feel it
would be unfair towards them to postpone their wiki now, when they are
nearly done with the one condition we have set.
Yes, we did conditionally approve, but one of the conditions was that it should be written in Sakha. I'm personally happy that they did localize the interface and all of us small people has/had a fairly amount of translation from en.wiki (or whatever else) to begin with.
Yet I think that finishing the translation of 7 articles is not a heavy request. They have very little content, I'm not going to ask anymore than they have, but at least THAT little bit should be okay.
In all it's about 40-50 articles they have, for a total of maybe ~5K words. Check the articles, you'll see it yourself.
