searching for a table with WMF language codes together with the ISO 15924: codes they use

https://meta.wikimedia.org/?curid=2322104#table links here
ISO 15924:Latn – English (lang=en )

Hi Bryan! Please note the int:lang inside the [[file:systemScript 004.svg|lang={{int:lang}}|thumb|<span dir="ltr" >ISO 15924:Latn – {{#language:{{int:lang}} |{{int:lang}}}} (<code>lang={{int:lang}} </code>)</span>|left|640px]] code. The syntax if improuved with a sophisticated CASE statement could be used on transcluded global account pages such as LTR w:si:user:Gangleri, RTL w:arz:user:Gangleri, faulty w:gag:user:Gangleri, faulty w:gom:user:Gangleri, special w:als:user:Gangleri, special w:bh:user:Gangleri, etc.
The ISO 15924 value displayd is always Latn which makes no sense, see https://commons.wikimedia.org/?curid=44764717#multiscript_collaboration for better usage.
Since years I miss a correct table of the WMF language codes together with the ISO 15924:codes they used. Can you please start an appropriate place for the list and another for the case statement and let people share and correct it. Thanks for your help in advance best regards Gangleri aka I18n (talk) 07:41, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

  1. P.S. list of language codes which can be used in the babel template call at a (test) user account at wikidata:

P.P.S. int:lang would changeif "?uselang=foobar" would be used as at https://mai.wikipedia.org/wiki/user:Gangleri?uselang=fur .

Hi! It is late night here. claim[1406:7333457] lists 16 WMF projects which are involved in RTL. FYI: m:RTL#Wikipedia _using RTL. Regards I18n (talk) 02:11, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi! A part of my questions can be answered looking at https://www.wikidata.org/?curid=17586175#multiscript_collaboration and the surrounding paragraphs.
I am interested in the multiscript part of internationalization and would be happy if we can create such a group (named "multiscript collaboration" with lower case letters).
Which persons from your WMF team might be interested / should be invited?

Socialize

Makes me sad. :( Plain language is recommended. --Nemo 22:40, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

What replacement phrasing would you suggest? --BDavis (WMF) (talk) 03:50, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
If you tell me what you really mean in that sentence, I can propose a replacement. Nemo 06:52, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
I've tried to make what I meant by "socialize" more plain in the document. Thanks for keeping me honest on the tech company jargon that can creep into my writing. It's hard to unlearn the "baffle them with bullshit" approach to writing project proposals. ;) BDavis (WMF) (talk) 18:31, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
