Can Gothic be added to the languages?

Asked by roel on 2014-06-05


I maybe will contribute to the Dutch translation, but my question is about something different.

I see that Latin is added to the languages, just as Esperanto and I 'm in a project to revive the Gothic language and would like to contribute to reviving it by also helping to create an Ubuntu Edition in Gothic.

There is one problem here: should I translate Gothic with the Gothic unicode or with Latin letters? Gothic is written in both ways by people but not everyone has Gothic unicode and for some people this gives blocks instead of letters.

Is it possible to change from Latin unicode letters to Gothic unicode in Linux? Or would two seperate language projects be needed to translate it both in Gothic with Gothic letters and Gothic with Latin letters?

Here is the ISO 639 of Gothic:
