Eitt mál er als ikki nóg mikið!

I am updating the language table

from -  http://code.google.com/p/texworks/source/browse/trunk/trans

And I note on that on May 16th 2011


was added, is that correct please?

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-1_codes
    that is

- Faroese


"Faroese[1] (føroyskt, pronounced [ˈføːɹɪst] or [ˈføːɹɪʂt]), is an
Insular Nordic language spoken by 48,000 people in the Faroe Islands
and about 25,000 Faroese people in Denmark and elsewhere."
