Nordic languages for V11

In the past week, and at NCUG in Stockholm June 11th, we were told that the Notes and Domino V11 would only be released in Swedish, and NOT Danish, Finnish, Norwegian or Icelandic. The reason given is that the revenue for Notes and Domino wasn't big enough in Norway, Finland, Denmark or Iceland. Please vote for this idea so that we can tell HCL that if we do NOT get editions for the other languages, the revenue will certainly not increase. In fact, it will most likely decrease even more. Vote here, to show them that here is a demand for the other languages as well!

    We are a company with apx. 400 users running 9.0.1 Danish - we hope that the Danish-language pack is avalible soon for v11 so we finally can upgrade to get advantage of the new features.

    HCL could offer this to the community to bring these languages to the platform

    Well, we are a multinational Danish company with currently 500 danish users, and if the templates and clients are not avalible in danish we would be forced to switch to another platform..., we where so happy that there finally was some development in notes, but very disappointed to learn that it will not be avalible ind Danish.

    yes, all languages that were supported before Notes 10 should be at least supported in the future releases.

    If HCL don't support them any more this looks like HCL don't have the power/budget to make notes/domino  future-proof.

    Notes/Domino should not only support Nordic languages, but all languages on the planet. This is how a product becomes attractive to the world.

    we have many employees in Hungary that only speaks native language. If this language will not be available this could be a show stopper for notes and domino 11

    No question, any common non-english language should be supported. Often employees do not speak English well, so translations must be available.

    +1 for giving the community the ability to support the translation process!

    It will be quite difficult to convince companies like UNOX, Statoil, Danske Bank etc. etc. to use the Notes Platform, if we cannot offer it in our native language! Many companies are fleeing from Domino, even though it should be their main platform, and not supporting Danish would just give them an extra, good argument, and that would be quite an expensive mistake from HCL, which the product cannot afford!
    So no question at all that Danish and the other nordic languages should be maintained!

    You can't bring the past from Domino into the Future, if you cannot port it using the same LOCALEs as before.

    Making this change could invalidate a lot of existing Applications out there.
    Suggest the Translation should be offered some way or another.

    HCL could start a community effort to do the translations, using a collaboration tool like LocaleApp.

    Someone mentioned that the translation could be done by the community. Excellent approach. HCL please find a way providing the translation files so that the community can work an them and give them back to you. 
    This could be a blue print for many other languages, too.

    I am all for it
    I know this needs to be rebuilt for HCL as all translators are lost

    If HCL is not willingly releasing it, let us do the translation for them. Its not that I don't trust HCL to do proper translation, but the Swedish translation has always been a bit quirky and not exact. I feel that it would be better to have the translation open so we could translate it bit by bit. Lots of people helping out.

    The lack of language support will only tell the customers in smaller markets/countries that they are insignificant and unimportant to their vendor. And from that there it’s only one possible outcome. I urge HCL to reconsider

    "Big enough" means as many as possible. Don't know what you tell you otherwise.

    How many is "big enough"? Are we talking more than 1000, 10.000 users or even more? Or does "big enough" mean something else?
