How long does each course take to make?

Like from when it entered the incubator to when it was released.

Depends on the contributors and the language. Indonesian and Hindi have been in the incubator since I joined and haven't made much progress (1 year ago), but I was already using Duolingo when Korean entered the incubator and later was open for all of us to use.


It's different for each course. Japanese, for instance, took three months to be released, but Czech took two years for release.


I would not waste time on considering how long staff-made courses openly stay in the Incubator.


The wiki contains lots of useful information like this.

For example: http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Course_list


That's an excellent question. As others have said, it depends on a lot of factors, but I'd love to hear what bits take how much time.
