Duplicate of #28303.

This is fixed in [33027]. Only WordPress 4.3+ is supporting variants of languages.

Then the API would be broken right? As it shouldn't have returned Deutsch (Sie).

Now there exists some confusion about this. I wrote the article on about the variants of languages (this article you know @ocean90). I wrote, this feature will be available in WP 4.3.

In the comments a user mentioned, that the option to choose "Deutsch (Sie)" exists at least since WP version 4.2.2.

@zodiak1978 (Torsten) commented, that the option to choose a language is available since v. 4.0. In addition the function "variants of languages" has been enabled on server site 3 weeks ago (

So I changed the article regarding these new informations.

In summary:
You can choose the language since version 4.0
You can choose Deutsch (Sie) since 3 weeks.

And now wrote Dominik, that
only WordPress 4.3 supports variants of languages?

Why we can choose Deutsch (Sie) in versions prior 4.3?
Something is definitively wrong.

I would be delighted to get some clarification :) , thank you.

I'll disable pushing de_DE_formal for WordPress < 4.3.
