In the last couple years we collected a list of songs and translation on this website which are written in languages for which we don't have a category yet.
Those are languages for which we have less than 3 texts.
Up until now, this list has been only accessible to moderators. However, there is no reason to keep it hidden. Therefore I now make it available to all of you so that these "rare" languages may get more attention and so that everyone can contribute to the list.

If you add a song or translation in a language without category, it's very appreciated if you mention it in this thread!

At its end, there is also an (incomplete) list of songs where we don't know which language it's written in - for this, we need your help Regular smile

Not really sure what happened here, but looks like some entries in this list need to be updated, i. e. removed. Didn't check them all, but I clearly remembered having seen way more than three entries for Yakut and Kariña.
As for the other languages, I should be able to find some entries for some of them to get them a category, if I look on my resources... maybe?. I'll try anyway.
Also, I can't access the text linked for Tuvan. What happened to it?

Thanks for your corrections! As I wrote, this list has been compiled through a long time, and while I removed things whenever I noticed them having become redundant, I did not recently go through the whole list.

The Tuvan entry seems to have been unpublished about a month ago. I don't know why, I'll contact the mod who did so.

And sure, if you provide more lyrics in others of the languages we most certainly can add new categories.

Thank you! Could you confirm that these three songs are in Dioula?
Then we could give it a category.

It was a duplicate entry and Tuvan has its own category already.

A translation into a dialect of Tuvan has been added now, though.

Why don't these languages get a category though?

Editor Leader of the Balkan Squad
Регистриран/а на: 14.10.2016

It's probably because there are so few songs in those languages and it wouldn't be worth the effort to make a new category.

Moderator and Scholar of a Dark Age
Регистриран/а на: 16.02.2011

We have currently the rule that there need to be at least 3 texts in it.
I don't know when or why this rule was made, but probably in order to avoid discussions over whether something needs a category when we have so few texts that it wouldn't be worth the effort.

One of them is Ma'anyan (Ma'anjan /Maanyak Dayak) language, that doesn't seem to be here.

Are there more?

About Carpathian, I don't know if the rule for some content applies to dialects as well. Anyway, I'll let the Admins know about this. Thanks for your contributions.

The 4th one is the one included in the list: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/%C5%A1tefan-%C5%A1tec-poletiv-b%C5%B7-m-n...
Rusyn divides into Carpathian Rusyn and Pannonian Rusyn but together they are just Rusyn (in English known also as Ruthene or Ruthenian). But all of them here are Carpathian I haven´t seen anything Pannonian yet. .

One of them is Ma'anyan (Ma'anjan /Maanyak Dayak) language, that doesn't seem to be here.

Thanks, I'll include it above - even if it's just one line per language.

Thanks for the info! Kurmanji has a category, so I've re-categorized them.

Added a translation into Lirian to the list - I don't know what that language is, found no info on it except that there are 2 towns in Iran of that name.

I had already seen that translation, but looks like a conlang to me. Surely a slavlang. May it be worth to ask the translator for more infos?

I left a comment but didn't get a reply. Guess I could send a PM, though, did so now - I also had that feeling it might be a conlang.

Thanks! I've re-categorized the songs accordingly and removed the one song from the list that was there.

Is any of the songs in conlangs actually in a conlang with a name?

The conlag Berserk sings is in a conlang created by Susumu Hirasawa called "Hirasawan" (ヒラサワ語), (according to Google).

Hmm, also if there are some other Malay varieties here, what about Singaporean Malay? There are 2 songs in this dialect:

Still not sure whether what you call conlang includes cases of what I would call gibberish. But in any case, thanks for the info! Re-categorized them.

Btw, most the songs you list were never on the list, please report corrections that are not related to the list above here instead: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/forum/incorrect-information-lyricstitleso...

We have a category for standard Malay, and for Kelantan-Pattani Malay, which is a language of the language group called Singapore Malay: https://glottolog.org/resource/languoid/id/patt1249
Do you perhaps know which kind of Singapore Malay those fandubs are in?

Here's what he said:
"i think i get it. Well i am not really entirely sure which language group is it cause they do speak malay but some words are like slang or something, idk. It's like saying both Argentinian spanish and latin spanish are the same but maybe there's some word change or the way they say it is different."

Thanks for asking!
Yes, perhaps the question is also ill-applied in this case, I know hardly anything about the Malayan languages. So I would suspect this is actually not in any of the other languages but simply in normal standard Malay with some local specialties, i.e. https://glottolog.org/resource/languoid/id/stan1306

I guess it is, Meirenyu said: "(It's a) Language of classical literature which was no longer spoken by 2nd century AD. The Chinese word is 古文, which means "ancient language". It's extremely beautiful ♥ Since it was used in literature, you can only write poetic lines with it. And it's even more 'extreme' than Cantonese in the sense that merely 2 words can translate into a sentence in English."
Why isn't Shanghainese on the list?

Ah, yes, that very much sounds like it, thanks.

Because I overlooked it in your comment Wink smile

Btw, I would suspect that we have more texts in Shanghainese and in Classical Chinese wrongly added to the (modern standard Mandarin) Chinese category.

No problem Teeth smile
You may be right. But how to find them? I guess we need someone who can speak all 3 (or at least 2 of them) to spot them... Or is there a better/easier way?

Added a song in Twi to the list.
