Request for a new language edition
: Wikipedia Fataluku
This language has been verified as eligible.
The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.
Once the criteria are met, the language committee can proceed with the approval, will verify the test project content with a reliable neutral source, such as a professor or expert and notify the Board of Trustees for a possible veto.
If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.
The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.
"Wikipedia talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin").
Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.

SupportSupport The Fataluku is a language of the great family of origin papua, for that reason when they speak this language has some similarity with other language like Makasae and Makalero in Timor-Leste. Majority people of District Lautem communicates with that language and at this time there is also Bible written in language Fataluku similar with the liturgy of Mass and other songs. cristovao(N)
SupportSupport : Native speakers of Fataluku have the competency and willingness to contribute to this project in the long-term. Hence the Fataluku language deserves to be given the opportunity and priviledge to have its own language edition of Wikipedia along with the existing East Timorese language such as Tetun. --Jose77 04:00, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
The language is eligible (native supporters, active test project). One of the native contributors, please register at Translatewiki and add a request in the thread mentioned by Amir, and you can start translating the interface. :-) Jon Harald Søby 13:04, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
