In the Software section, there are two review references for the statement "jAlbum is credited as being extremely easy to use, flexible and versatile". The second one describes Jalbum as freeware, so I should remove that one. Is there another review that I can add to replace it?
What about Trustpilot, https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.jalbum.net

I should put up a bogus review site on my "spare" domain, and load it up with glowing reviews. ;)

Yes, it's better to references our TrustPilot rating (4.7 of 5) and the reviews there. They are always up-to-date: https://www.trustpilot.com/review/www.jalbum.net

I have now replaced the second review site with the TrustPilot site.

The Software paragraph states that jAlbum is available in 32 languages, but there are only 25 languages listed on jAlbum's language page
In the jAlbum settings Tools>Preferences>General>Language there 34 languages to choose from in the dropdown list.
=================
The 25 languages I mentioned above are for jalbum.net - not for the program (I should read more carefully :) )

Go with 34. It's what the client supports that's most important

I will go with 34, but I don't think I can apply a reference to the language page if that is only showing 25. (Wikipedia likes to have source references for statements like that, and with conflicting numbers it would look like an unreliable source or a false statement).
==============
Perhaps I should go with 32 and use the v19 release notice as the source reference ? (34 includes different versions of Chinese)

I should write a review of jAlbum, complete with this kind of data, under one of my noms de plume. Then, to keep Wikipedia happy, you could cite my review as the source of the information. I'm only half-kidding about this. ;)

Wikipedia does not have hard and fast rules, so sometimes commonsense can override "best practice". I could leave out the source reference to keep everyone happy :)
I am also only half-kidding here. Why not write your review at TrustPilot using your normal nom-de-plume which I believe would be more trustworthy than hiding under another name ;)

I'm not sure TrustPilot would classify me as a "confirmed purchaser." And I doubt that's the kind of "source" that Wikipedia wants, in any event. I suspect they want a citation to something more "authoritative," like a publication that reviews software for consumers, like Mister Neutron's Software Guide. Site under construction, and yes, I own the domain!

It is easy to add the supported languages to the wiki, and then reference that. However I would need to know the rules for what counts as a language! For example, there are two Portuguese entries, Brazilian and European, does that count as one or two? And why do we have two Portuguese entries but only one English (American), if there is only one it should be the original and best ;)

There are two Portuguese entries and two Chinese entries so I guess that is why the jAlbum release notice says 32 languages.
I will go with the release notice as source for the time being, and when RobM's wiki details specifies languages I will use that as source (I think you can make up your own rules for "what counts as a language", but I will count 32).
And of course, anyone else can override my contributions with a more trustworthy edit ;).

jAlbum supports thirty two languages, not including variations in languages.
