Yes, you can see 4 languages select this as their charset.

We did accept partial translations in the past, but we are now in a 
trasition mode from SF CVS to Rosetta / from 2.1.x to 2.2.  It may take 
time to get new languages in the official release.  You can test or 
release your language in an unofficial way by submitting it on the SF 
patch area or on your own site (if any).

We do not put priorities.  It depends on the convenience of the 
translators or the language users.
