    Default No nynorsk translation?

    Hi

    I'm a nynorsk-user (nynorsk is a writing language which has official status, like bokml, here in Norway) and I can't find the nynorsk translation of OpenSUSE anywhere. Had to install the nynorsk spelling dictionary for Firefox from Mozilla's site manually even though I have "Norwegian" selected in YAST's language setting-thing. In OpenOffice.org the nynorsk dictionary isn't installed either...

    If you have bokml you should include nynorsk as well. They have the same official status and about every distro I've tried had a nynorsk translation (maybe not that complete but at least they had some!).

    sounds like a great way for the 7.5% of Norwegians who use nynorsk
    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_language> to make a grand
    contribution to open software, and SuSE by doing the translation..

    of the several Linux User Groups in Norway <http://tinyurl.com/6crtu4>
    are any highly populated by nynorsk users??

    just a thought,

    I don't know. Nynorsk has a poor reputation in Norway, especially in the more academic part where they write mostly riksml.

    I can live with only bokml translation but to NOT include nynorsk dictionaries to Firefox and Openoffice.org, that's not good policy.

    About the language communities, I have no idea. I'm not into any of them and I don't want to either.
