Thai is a language option. At the bottom of the list of languages, you can select +More Languages" and it will bring up more languages to choose from

They won't add Mandarin or Cantonese Chinese since there are already too many Chinese songs and there's no way they could separate each song.

I thought that's what users do? Did they add lyrics officially too?

Users are able to add lyrics in languages that are available. Only administrators can add new languages to the list of available ones. Right now, Thai is an available language to add lyrics in, as well as Chinese, and Chinese (Hakka) but not Cantonese

I know but someone mentioned that they should add Brazilian Portuguese and EU Portuguese and then someone said that for the same reason they won't separate the Chinese language. There're way too many songs and there aren't many editors/moderators who speak Chinese.
In that way they should separate Arabic into Standard, Egyptian, Libanese etc In this case what they did was to add Arabic and Arabic (Other varieties) which includes any dialect.

Also if someone who doesn't speak Chinese but wants to add the lyrics most probably will add it on the wrong part and there's going to be a bigger mess.

* My advice would be to add a parenthesis next to the title of each song (Mandarin) or (Cantonese) . Also don't forget that when you add a song you first have to write the title in Latin letters and then with Chinese letters

To me there should definitely be Mandarin and Cantonese as separate languages, simply because they are two different languages. Even though some people are used to call them Chinese or Chinese for Mandarin, and see Cantonese as a 'dialect', it's not an objective perception. The two languages use Chinese characters (the traditional ones for Cantonese), and they are related, but otherwise it's like putting German and Dutch as only one language.

It sounds reasonable to do as you suggest in convenience of searching. I understand your thoughts. But I must say Cantonese is not like Brazilian Portuguese and EU Portuguese. Cantonese is a dialect of Chinese just like Catalunya versus Spanish, relevant but different language system. That's why I bring it up. Nevertheless, let's stay the same for convenience. Thank you for replying fast and sincerely.
