#25717 closed Bug (fixed)

Incorrect local language name for slovak language

Local name returned by template tag get_language_info is grammatically incorrect for slovak language: slovenský (translated it means 'slovakian'). The word should be correct if used like this: 'slovenský jazyk' (translated it means 'slovak language'). Without word 'jazyk' (language) it doesn't make much sense. If you need to write it by one word only, it should be one of these:

I personally would prefer 'slovenčina' but according to the forms used by other languages, is should be 'slovensky'. Also, most of the languages are using capitalised names, so the best should be 'Slovensky'.

I've requested by mail the opinion of the current Slovak coordinator on Transifex (Marian Andre).

Received by Marian in a private mail:

From the ‘consistency’ point of view with other languages he is correct - the correct form is ‘slovensky’.
