Hi Christoph.
I am facing strange issue while trying to request for Joining a language team of translators. Kindly find attached the screenshots of issues being faced.
For example, I Navigate to page https://www.transifex.com/yaron/vlc-trans/language/ta/ and then try to click on Join button, it Asks for which language the request is being made for.
When i try to search for Tamil, it is unavailable. Hence unable to request for Joining Tamil Team. Same thing I tried with Oriya language also. But the same error.
Kindly let me know how to proceed for requesting to join these language teams.

Regards,Chandrakant Dhutadmal.

Looks like weblate can add new languages (I only checked documentation so far), so it should be possible to collect new translations to not yet available languages.

So, if UTF-8 supports all of this, creating them should be possible.

If you want to use this languages, we will have to check for support on the target systems, I am willing to see how to get them included into cldr.
AFAICT glibc, android, osx, windows all use it.

Anyway, I have no personal experience with it and expect it to take some time (i.e. caused by release cycles).

Best regards
