New Language Depot release

Dear WeSay and Send/Receive users,

On November 27th (next Monday) we will be releasing a new version of Language Depot (the site that WeSay uses for Send/Receive).

While we expect most things to just keep working, WeSay is fairly old software. It is likely that a configuration change will be necessary in order for Send/Receive to continue working (more information on that below). There are also a few other things to take note of.

Maintenance mode

Language Depot will be in maintenance mode between 00:00 and 04:00 UTC while we migrate to the new version. During this time Send/Receive will not work and both (aka and (aka will be unavailable.

Merging public and private

As part of this release we will be merging Public Language Depot ( and Private Language Depot (

Both public and private Send/Receive configurations will continue to work.

What to try if Send/Receive stops working

If you can’t Send/Receive here is what you should try:

  1. Open the Send/Receive Settings for your project
  2. For Server select Custom Location…
  3. For URL use the following: https://[your LD-login]:[your LD-password][your project-code]:

Why would this fix it?

WeSay uses HTTP by default, which the new version of Language Depot no longer supports for security reasons.

If something stops working

Please let us know and we’ll see if we can fix it.

Swapping out a 13 year old system is no easy task, so please be gracious if we run into a few unexpected hurdles.

Why are we doing this?

The new version of Language Depot is the first step of modernizing the Send/Receive and language data tool set. Freeing ourselves from the current/old site will allow us to rethink how language data is stored and synchronized. It will also enable us to expand the feature set of Language Depot.

Warm regards,
The Language Depot development team
