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.
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.
"Wiktionary 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.
I would like to propose a Northern Sotho (language also known as Sepedi and Sesotho sa Leboa) as related South African languages such Sesotho and Tswana has succesfully been added as Wikimedia projects. This language is considered an official language of the Republic of South Africa and as can be seen from the external links there are a lot of resources available online.

Sadly, there is already a plethora of inactive and zero-content wikis in (South) African languages (e.g. Venda, XiTsonga, Herero, Ndonga, Kanuri). Therefore, I would highly recommend to first gather a group of prospective contributors to ensure that this proposal does not suffer the same fate.--Johannes Rohr 22:05, 2 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You may consider, as Johannes Rohr suggested, gathering a group of contributors and creating content on the Incubator wiki. You would create dictioary definitions with the prefix "Wn/nso." (More experienced metapedians: if I am mistaken, please correct me.) --Iamunknown 20:15, 21 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Currently 36.94% of the MediaWiki messages and 3.86% 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.
