Ukraine is UA, not UK

Simone Carletti
Hi all,

I've just come across the folder http://framework.zend.com/fisheye/browse/Zend_Framework/trunk/documentation/manual/uk including the Ukraine translation.
I would suggest to rename the folder as UA as defined by ISO Country Codes.

What do you think?

Simone

And I was already surprised why our British fellows need a own translation.

ISO 639-1 is "uk"

I've copied Joseph, the lead translator for the Ukrainian translation,
for further discussion.

Best regards,

Re: Ukraine is UA, not UK

Beside the joke I made before, is darbys information right.

The language code for ukrainian is uk...
What Simone meant was the country code (UK/UA) which is not the language
code.

See here for language code:
http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/php/code_list.php
See here for country code:
http://www.iso.org/iso/country_codes/iso_3166_code_lists/english_country_names_and_code_elements.htm#u..

So I would keep "uk", also because when you set ukrainian in your browser as
preferred language the browser will send "uk" and not "ua" !!

RE: Ukraine is UA, not UK

Joseph Chereshnovsky
Hello,

So, all is correct now.

"uk" language code was used according to "ISO 639-2" language codes table.

Thanks for explanation, Thomas.

Regards,
Joseph

I was not aware of this information. :)
I just read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-2_codes

In this case, it's fine for me as well.

Simone

I was *actually* surprised that the Ukraine needed its own code, since
my impression was that all  Ukrainians are very comfortable reading
documentation in Russian. I have lots of Ukrainian friends here in the
states, and all of them tell me they can speak Russian much better than
Ukrainian at this point. It's probably a combination of the fact that
they represent the reality during the Soviet era more than today's
reality and they tend to spend a lot of their time with Russians
speaking Russian, but is the situation so different in the Ukraine now?
Are there people who can understand docs significantly better in
Ukrainian than in Russian?

Just curious. Plus, I'd love to get to know some of our Ukrainian
community members. :)
