Feature: #93114 - Native support for language Shona (Bantu) added

See forge#93114


TYPO3 now supports Shona (Bantu language) - the language of the Shona people of Zimbabwe - out of the box.

Shona is one of the most widely spoken Bantu languages (Shona on Wikipedia).

The ISO 639-1 code for Shona is "sn", which is how TYPO3 is accessing the language internally.


It is now possible to

  • Fetch translated labels from translations.typo3.org / CrowdIn automatically within the TYPO3 Backend
  • Switch the Backend Interface to Shona language
  • Create a new language in a site configuration using Shona
  • Create translation files with the "sn" prefix (such as sn.locallang.xlf) to create your own labels

and TYPO3 will pick Shona as a language just like any other supported language.
