Gusto naming pasalamatan ang Google for adding support for 9 new languages: Afrikaans, Belarusian, Icelandic, Irish, Macedonian, Malay, Swahili, Welsh and Yiddish. We have added support to our wordpress plugin which took a little while because of the following critical issue. What flag should we use for Yiddish? First thing we would like to say is that flags are changeable, just follow the FAQ and if you don’t like our choices, no one is forcing you.
After a short debate we have decided to give Yiddish the european union flag because of two reasons, one – the language originated there, not in any specific country and second – the flag does not stand for any specific country in a similar way to the language which can not be connected to any country. If anyone has better suggestions, we are open to hear them.
This release also follows a few weeks of silence, in which we have been quietly thinking and discussing new features, which we hope we’ll be able to release soon, any help and feedback will not only be appreciated but will also help us deliver a better product.
