Hello ckairaba,

thanks for contacting us. I will reassign this request to Launchpad itself, since Launchpad has no knowledge of N'ko as a language yet.

For more informaion that might be necessary from your part, please look here:

Regards.

N'ko is a script, not a Language. Maybe you mean you want to register Mande? I am not sure this is correct since it is a language group, not a specific language. I see at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mande_languages that Mandre does have a language code of dmn, but we still need to know the number of plurals and the plural forms so that Lp can prompt you to enter the translation (https://help.launchpad.net/Translations/PluralForms).
FAQ #23: “How do I create a new language for translation?”.

Can you help with this problem?
