In South Africa we have a large amount of WoT players.  Many of them, their mother tongue is AFRIKAANS. Various South African Clans exists, but it is impossible to indicate that the clan's main language is Afrikaans.  Many people join, or, want to join these clans is in Clan Language Policy only English appear.

What is the chance of adding AFRIKAANS into Clans language policy to prevent confusion with tank commanders applying to South African clans.

I would like to suggest a quick fix despite the fact I'm gonna look like ignorant fool. You can set spoken language to be Dutch instead of English, that would at least indicate you don't speak English. At least until WG introduces Afrikaans.

 

And I think WG is being donkey arse for not pulling data from UN or something for language options and flag options.

As I know some European languages are also missing and they are not rushing to add them...
 

Try to contact the support and maybe they send the request to the devs.

Hi All

Cro001. Funny with Dutch is that they talk to fast and most afrikaans speaking people find it hard to understand - Good Idea - but I dont think it will work - I think Wot Should look at the geographics and see where most people are from - Country/Flag/Language can easily be added in Clan Section - Look at XVM.

Alienslive. I posted this after i did send a ticket to WoT and they answered to post it here. Most Prob to see what is reaction.  Hope devs look at it.

Crusad3r.  Yes we as rest of world also found Americanese a funny language - And your president is Trumping it at moment.  

 

Thanks for comments guys and see you on battle field

Being Dutch myself and working with some Afrikaans speaking colleagues I can say that some of the words you use are confusing as well :D

Oh no doubt, I thought you just add it as mere notification that you don't speak (only) English.
