How can a large company not have heard of Mandarin?

I'm attempting to fill in an application form for a British subsidiary of a large German company, and there is a drop-down list for languages, which list includes the following languages I've never heard of: Kannada, Kiswahili, Marthi, Oria, Sindebele, Thelugu, Xhosa and Yoruba; but not Mandarin! Unbelievable! (It does have Cantonese, but still...)

Anyone speak any of the above?
