CLDR Change Requests

Requesting Changes

There are two ways to request changes (for bug fixes or new features):

Use the CLDR Survey Tool

  • fixing/adding most language-specific data

  • for more information (including opening an account), see Survey Tool.

File a Ticket

  • additions of new locales (see Adding New Locales, below)

  • defects in the survey tool

  • adding or changing non-language data (such as currency usage)

  • additions or changes to data that is not yet handled by the survey tool (collation, segmentation, and transliteration)

  • feature requests in CLDR or UTS #35: Locale Data Markup Language (LDML).

How to File a Ticket

The CLDR tickets are located at:

To file a ticket, click the red "Create" button in the upper screen area.

If you don't have an account, you'll see an image like the following.

If you see that dialog, please sign up for a Jira account.

In CLDR Bug Reports, please try to give as much information as possible to help address the issue, and please group related bugs (such as a list of problems with the LDML specification) into a single bug report.

A few areas are particularly tricky.

Adding New Locales

If you would like to add data for a new locale,

  1. Make sure that you pick the right locale code for the new data. See Picking the Right Language Code

  2. Gather the Core Data for New Locales. A new locale is only added if someone commits to supplying/maintaining the data.

  3. Follow the instructions above to file a ticket, requesting the addition. Add the language code (#1) and core data (#2) in the ticket)

  4. Get a Survey Tool Account, so that once the locale is added, you can manage the data in the Survey Tool. (see Survey Tool Accounts).
