When I remember correct the "languages.js" file has some flags to send 
the user with a specific language to an alternative webpage (if the 
former NL community wanted to have this behavior). Mostly it was a 
webpage somewhere on the respective NL webpage.

(To be more specific, the text in the green download box will then 
change and the underlying link will change.)

So, we can leave all not supported languages and point them to the 
"other.html". To point them to the respective NL webpage doesn't make 
sense as it's quite sure that the content is outdated and therefore not 
really helpful.
