Hello Sanjib,
Don't worry, it may take some time before Ubuntu Translators reply to a question.
Keep holding on!
Bye.

Will it be same after group creation also? I mean someone has to wait for long time to get someones reply for something. I feel anyone's interest may die while waiting for a comment.

Hello Sanjib,

I took a look at your request, but I can not give you a clear answer right now if the team can be accepted or not.
Looking into Launchpad, looks like the Bodo language is not know by Launchpad.

For what you have already done, the only problem I see is that the team is open. As stated here:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Translations/KnowledgeBase/StartingTeam

we require the team to be moderated, but we are open to discuss why you need it open.
For the fact that the Bodo language is not know by Launchpad, it might even be the case to check if the same language is know by other parts of the operating system. Take a look at this page:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Translations/KnowledgeBase/AddingNewLanguage

It might help you have an idea of what we are looking at, and what might be need to be done.
Also, I checked in Gnome, and not even there there is a Bodo team. I didn't check with Debian, but it is worth to take a look there too. If those team do not exists, some parts of the operating system will not be shown as translated, even if you translate them via Launchpad.

Ciao.

Thank You for your reply!
As per of your suggestion I have changed the team to moderated. And our Bodo Language is currently not known by other Operating System. We only have active and working translation copy at LibreOffice.
This is my first attempt to add Bodo (BRX) in to Launchpad or Ubuntu. I recently added a brx_IN keyboard support for Bodo language at Glibc. I have send the same copy in the Ubuntu Launchpad also.
Yes there is no Bodo Team at Gnome but I send a request to Gnome translation earlier this month but no one was replying in Gnome l10n list. In Debian also there is no Bodo Language Team.
I would like to hear what are the necessary steps for adding this new Language to Ubuntu. I have the two links you send me and I have gone through these steps. If i have missed some steps please let me know.

Thanks & Regards
Sanjib

Unfortunately, if the Bodo locale is not in glibc we cannot proced further.
To create a new language inside Launchap, that will be necessary for
Ubuntu even, you can refer to this FAQ:
https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+faq/23

The steps you performed are correct, and what you have done is
perfect, the only thing is that if we do not have all the pieces
together, you will not be really using your translation work, and if
Launchpad does not list Bodo as a valid language, there is not much we
can do.

For Gnome specific steps, you should take a look at this page:
http://live.gnome.org/TranslationProject/NewLanguage

I suggest you to talk with the Gnome guys over on IRC, on the #i18n
channel, try to ping "claude".
Also, I would try to contact Debian too, as a lot of Ubuntu parts come
from there and would be better translated there.

Ciao.

Thank You Milo,
Our language is already in Glibc
http://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=tree;f=localedata/locales;hb=HEADfind
the brx_in or this is a blob file
http://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=blob;f=localedata/locales/brx_IN;h=0277a8e0a44e90c1487112ff2b92a4736d4ecf29;hb=HEAD

We created a gnome Team also http://l10n.gnome.org/teams/brx/
Our CLDIR specific is
http://www.unicode.org/cldr/trac/browser/trunk/common/main/brx.xml and find
bodo or brx for plurals

if locale is already in glib, then it is only a matter of time for it
to be available in Ubuntu if your patch has not been accepted yet.
In the meantime, please follow the instructions at the following link,
in order to add Bodo language to Launchpad:

https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+faq/23

You need to open a new "question" in order for the Launchpad admin to
add your language. Please open a new one, so we will keep this for the
translation team. When the language has been added, we can approve
your team and appoint it to translate into Bodo.

Ciao.
