Add "Ukrainian sign language" as an option for "Langauges" field

Currently IMDb has the following 12 options to choose in "Langauge" field for different sign languages:
* American Sign Language
* Australian Sign Language
* Brazilian Sign Langauge
* British Sign Language
* French Sign Language
* German Sign Language
* Icelandic Sign Language
* Indian Sign Language
* Japanese Sign Language
* Korean Sign Language
* Russian Sign Language
* Spanish Sign Language

and a generic "Sign languages"

However, by far the most famous and acclaimed sign langauge film is actually in Ukrainian Sign Language; the film is called "The Tribe". You can learn more about it on en WP: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tribe_(2014_film)

There on enwiki article you can see that this movie had awards from 50+ festivals and didn't get an Oscar for best Foreign Film that year through purely bad luck.

Could you please add a new option for "Ukrainian Sign Language" so I could update https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1745787/ (right now it has "Ukrainian" as the main langugage, but obviously that should be corrected once the option becomes available).

Thank you!!!

Cannot plus that more. 

In addition this short film by the same director should have the same listed in Languages instead of "None".

Since there is no official explanations here on GS as well as in the official guidelines, concerning the sign languages support, I think it would be great to have them to keep the data consistent.

And if IMDb supports the "Sign Languages" to be further transformed into multilingual form, then it would be great to have this current thread marked as "Problem" for faster reaction (admins please change it).

Hi piznajko,

Thank you for highlighting that this is missing, I've added Ukrainian Sign Language now and this should become available in the next 24 hours.

Regards,
Will

Hi, Will.
While others are so fast in thanksgiving, please provide a real implementing for this feature, because my submitions still pending and the terms have expired.

What kind of proof the editors need for Glukhota (2010)?
Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfC_80rU-qc
that includes the Ukrainian sign language moment:

Is it enough, or should I explain to editors what a sign language is and how they differ between each other?

I hope for the official explanations on this matter, that could help not only me but also other contributors in providing evidence for Plemya (2014). Thank you in advance.

MAthePA thanks for your submissino correcting the langauge to "Ukrainain Sign Language" for both Plemya and Glukhota. What happened to it, was it rejected?

Hi piznajko,

There is more work required to add these languages that I wasn't aware of, which has led to the delay. This is in progress though and once it can be supported it will go live on those titles.

Regards,
Will

Hi Will, quick observation - I was able to find titles that have "Ukrainian Sign Language" in them on regular web site - see https://www.imdb.com/search/title?title_type=feature&primary_language=ukl . However, when using IMBb app, searching titles with "Ukrainian Sign Language" wasn't an option. Is there a plan to update IMBb app as well to allow search for "Ukrainian Sign Language" titles? Thanks!
