How are the "top" languages for WordPress.com selected?

  1. How are the languages picked for the languages dropdown on the main page? For example, Russian has about the same number of translated strings as German, and significantly more than Turkish, yet it is not in the “main” languages list while German and Turkish are. Or is it not the number of translated strings but rather the number of users in that particular language? I would love to see Russian as one of the main options – and I think having it readily available on the list of languages might help increase the number of users, too!

  2. Or is it not the number of translated strings but rather the number of users in that particular language?

    It is rather the number of users; the number of translated strings fluctuates too much.

  3. Thanks! Out of curiosity, are there any open stats about where Russian ranks among the languages used?

  4. There is this http://en.wordpress.com/stats/ but it looks like we need to update both that *and* the dropdown :) (good news for ru, in that case)

  5. OK, I'll be looking forward to Russian making it to the top list!
