Chuvash translation of Wikipedia Mobile

The official Wikipedia mobile app is now translated into Chuvash language and available to use:

What does Chuvash mean?

I am Chuvash. Chuvash is the name of an ethnicity which counts up to 2 milions peoply (mostly in Russia). Chuvashes talk the Chuvash language which is also an official language in Chuvash Republic (besides Russian). Chuvash language is a Turkic language and has a status “Vulnerable” in the UNESCO list of languages in danger. There is a Chuvash Wikipedia cv.wikipedia.org.

What is Wikipedia Mobile?

Wikipedia Mobile is a mobile application which is available on Google Play and App Store. It is written mostly in javascript and uses Cordova (PhoneGap) as a mobile container to interact with a mobile device.

Translation

I translated text strings into Chuvash on translatewiki.net which is used for the translation of wikimedia projects and external projects. Thanks for the tip to @aharoni and Sakha Wikipedia mailing list. If you can write Chuvash, please feel free to correct and add new text strings.

How to use

To be able to see the Chuvash interface we have to have a Chuvash locale. Unfortunately there is no one. If you are using Android then you are a lucky one, you can add any locale with MoreLocale 2 app.

Just install it and add a new locale (cv or cv-RU):

By the way, to write with additional four letters in Chuvash (besides the Russian 33 letters), you can use the Chuvash keyboard layout for Android which I published on Google Play. The most interface on your mobile will use default strings (English), but Wikipedia Mobile’s interface will be completely in Chuvash 🙂

    Sounds like a great project to help preserve the language. I hadn’t heard of Chuvash before I read your article.
