Hi There,

Just to make one thing clear: pap_CW and pap_AW (and pap_BQ) are different 'languages' just like nl_NL and nl_BE are. The locales are different, for instance what 'ku' is in pap_CW is 'cu' in pap_AW. The days of the week differ.

So I am currently (again, after a delay since june last year) trying to finish the locale.

In this bug report it seems to me that some work has already been done to prepare the three pap_ languages.

I am coming to this list and have talked with Michael to see where everything fits in. I am confused by many things. I need a guide :-)

There used to be a pap_AN but AN was dissected into different countries. pap_CW is for Curaçao, pap_AW for Aruba and pap_BQ for Bonaire.

Hi Ace,

We've already talked a bit off list. He needs admin rights for Papiamentu and for someone to enable the UI for translation.

There's also another question around the code. What's the best way of handling a small language that spans multiple countries? Should he maintain pap or should it be split into pap_CW etc? I'm thinking of the differences in currency, measurements etc?

The other question he had was what the cutoff is for getting a release? The whole lot is a pretty daunting task after all!

Nice to meet all of you, I am trying to do localization for Papiamento (Curaçao) (pap_CW).

Oh, and does anyone know if there already is someone responsible for this language or the language 'pap' ?
