Just noting that the order in this dropdown is hopeless.
Comment 5 Jonathan Druart 2017-09-01 14:29:24 UTC
You need to check the existence of these languages in the update DB, otherwise they will be duplicated.

Note: the "added" column is wrong, but useless as well. It should be an automatic timestamp.
Comment 6 Fridolin Somers 2021-04-02 13:03:05 UTC
This would be useful.

I completely agree !

Maybe a silly proposition (or technically impossible to apply...) but why don't use the authorized values list dedicated to languages for this list ?

That way, each library would have available in this list only the languages ​​actually present in its catalog.
It would also be easier to find the language we want, because the order of this list is a little bit esoteric in my view :/
Comment 8 Katrin Fischer 2022-04-21 19:11:02 UTC
I think sorting/display could be improved by using the "translated name" of the language for sorting.

A reason why we don't use authorised values is translatability, especially if you offer the OPAC in multiple languages. I know that Bernardo once tried to move them out of the database and make them translatable in Pootle: bug 12017

Oh ! You're totally right, I completely missed this point !
