Hi there,

I was going to add a transcription request before I realised that Punjabi doesn't seem to be on the list of languages. Is there any particular reason for this? At over 100m speakers,I'd have thought it was prominent enough a language to include, especially considering that many others that have been included are much relatively minor languages by comparison.

Thanks,
Hashim

Punjabi is available when you go down and choose +More languages.
Type in Punjabi , before the word is even complete you'll see it.
Beautiful language that it is, too.

I want a Punjabi song, too, so look at how I did it here:

You're right, I actually found it later. I'm wondering what the motivation for the design decision of nesting languages into two different menus? Is there any practical difference between the first set of languages and the second or is it done purely for organisation?

The main reason is to separate the 'main' languages - those which have more content or are more accessed/popular from other languages that are not as popular as the others. If this hadn't been done, all the languages (150+) available would be listed together - causing a mess.
