Description (last modified by pulkomandy)

I translate haiku into the Na'vi language using http://i18n.haiku-os.org/pootle/ but they don't seem to be included when I look for them in haiku.

This is true as of hrev47410.

We would need an ISO-639 code for the language, and ideally get it into ICU databases. Unfortunately, in 2012 Na'vi was denied an ISO code for lack of existing litterature, which puts us in a kind of chicken and egg problem.

It seems we could use art-nav or art-nvi (with "art" being the code for artificial languages). We will still need some hack to make it selectable in the locale preflet, however.
