Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

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!

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

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

    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

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

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