Please add Oromo as a language option


Fayai Dayi (2021) is in the Oromo language, not Amharic language as currently displayed on imdb. Oromo is not currently an option in the language dropdown list.

Additionally, The Athlete (2009) has some dialogue in Oromo as well.

As the most widely spoken native language in Ethiopia (and second in total speakers), the Oromo language should be a selectable option on the site, as more and more films are being made in Ethiopia, and the number of films made in Oromo is likely to increase.

More information can be found on Ethnologue.

The two-letter ISO code is om.

Many thanks.

About adding a new language: This might very well take years: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/please-add-the-shipibo-language-to-the-database/5f4a7ae28815453dbabfa6bc
