We never measured it, but the bureaucracy is very small. The focus is on the real work, not on paperwork. If you have a community of people uploading and proofreading texts and keeping the software localization complete and up to date, the rest is small details. Here's as example from the Gujarati Wikisource: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages/Wikisource_Gujarati (In fact, that page is relatively big. Usually a much smaller page is enough.) The full policy for creating a project in a new language is here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Language_proposal_policy It would be very useful to get this Language proposal policy page translated to the major languages of India, like Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Bengali, so that people who don't know English well would be able to read it and use it more easily. Anybody can do it by clicking the "Translate this page" link at the top. -- Amir Elisha Aharoni · אָמִיר אֱלִישָׁע אַהֲרוֹנִי http://aharoni.wordpress.com “We're living in pieces, I want to live in peace.” – T.
