Proposal summary
Please read the handbook for requesters for help using this template correctly.
  • Language: more than 500,000 speakers, co-official language (along with Russian) in the Udmurt Republic, Russia.

  • Notes/comments:
    • I'm interested to develop Udmurt wikipedia but there are some strong technical problems still not resolved: namely, the problem concerning presentation/mispresentation of specifical Udmurt Unicode characters from Extended Cyrillic (they are omitted in such popular fonts as Times New Roman, Arial, Verdana and so on... then I don't know how to solve this problem... Can anybody give me some related advices? Denis Sacharnych 14:11, 14 Mar 2005 (UTC)
      • ATTENTION! The most of Cyrillic languages of Russia has no font support! The best variant is used in Chuvash Wikipedia: cv:MediaWiki:Monobook.css Could this code be loaded to all listed wikis (exclude Crimean Tatar)? Also about the interface files. For the most of listed files Russian files should be loaded. They are also should be loaded to Kyrghyz, Kazakh, Komi, Avar, Kumyk, Chechen, Mari, Chuvash, Bashkir, Abkhazian wikis, as it was done for Ossetic, Turkish file for Crimean Tatar. --Untifler 15:23, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)
      • It's probably, that Udmurt keyboard is't created yet, or it is not popular. Something like cv:MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning could be used.
        • Thanks for the links, they seems to be very useful! About keyboard drivers: I use an Udmurt keyboard driver (with Unicode-support) made by myself, but the most preferred variant for wiki-developers would be IMHO an on-line keyboard emulator (written in JavaScript).--Denis Sacharnych 04:53, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • If the technical issues can be solved and a couple more native speakers are willing to participate I'll be in favor of an Udmurt WP. Arbeo 12:56, 16 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]
    • Support. I hope more native speakers join, but the test-wiki looks fine. --Chamdarae 08:29, 27 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]
    • Support. Hopefully this will interest Udmurt speakers. --Hottentot
    • I hope the Wikimedia Foundation will pay especial attention to this request, because it's about a real, used language with a large literature tradition, Udmurt media, Udmurt schools and Udmurt Philology department in Izhevsk. - Slavik IVANOV 08:52, 4 October 2005 (UTC)[reply]
    • Support. It would be desirable to see this section faster. There are people which are ready to support it. PCode 14:27, 12 October 2005 (UTC) (Chuvash section administrator, avtomatic translated from russian)[reply]
