- The community needs to complete required MediaWiki interface translations in that language (about localization, translatewiki, check completion).
- The community needs to discuss and complete the settings table below:

Doteli, or Dotyali (डोटेली) is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by about 800,000 people, most of whom live in Nepal. It was traditionally considered the western dialect of Nepali, and is written in the Devanagari script. It has official status in Nepal As per Part 1, Section 5 of Interim Constitution of Nepal 2063 (2007). There are four main dialects of Dotyali namely Baitadeli, Bajhangi Nepali, Darchuli and Dotyali. The established comprehension between these dialects is high. All dialects of Dotyali are able to share language-based materials . Words and scripts of Kumaouni language (spoken in Kumaoun part of India) are also almost similar with Doteli but dialect is bit different. (main article Doteli Language)
A Doteli Wiktionary will provide an opportunity to have a reference source of words peculiar to this language. This will also enable Doteli writers to consolidate their attempts to develop a common standard for writing in Doteli.--Nirajan pant (talk) 13:03, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
