Wikipedia defines a constructed language, or conlang for short, as "a language whose phonology, grammar, and/or vocabulary have been consciously devised by an individual or group, instead of having evolved naturally." Some conlangs are devised for a culture in a work of fiction; others are intended as a worldwide second language.

Notability

SIL International maintains ISO 639-3, an international standard listing notable languages. A language for human communication can be registered if it has a literature. Non-notable conlangs are not eligible to be included in Translatewiki, the project to translate interface messages in MediaWiki.
