Templates[edit]

CAT:PER and translation issues[edit]

Hi. User:Nemo bis has made several edit requests that fall under the realm of translation admin territory and they should be looked at.

I might be nulling the templates shortly since they are cluttering up the protected edit requests category. Killiondude (talk) 05:20, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Todo[edit]

I discouraged translation to both pages. If you find more which are problematic, don't hesitate to add here. Best regards. – Kwj2772 (msg) 10:12, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Unordered lists[edit]

I've seen several unordered lists that were split just to get new translation units. Is this the desired way to go?

-- Rillke(q?) 17:39, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

@Rillke: mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation administration#Markup examples suggests splitting very long lists only. --Ricordisamoa 18:40, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

Categorization of translation[edit]

Some pages use the {{LangCat}} which produces subpages of categories (e.g. "Commons policies/de" for German translations of policy pages; contains 5 pages currently). We already have had conventional local category scheme named in local languages (e.g. "Commons Richtlinien" for Gernan; contains 15 pages). We should decide which category to be used in translations. We have three choices:

  • Keep {{LangCat}} and migrate to new category scheme.
  • Keep old category scheme by assigning one more translation unit for categorization.
  • Redirect one category to another.

Your opinion is appreciated. Thank you. – Kwj2772 (msg) 09:48, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

I Symbol support vote.svg Support first option: we can't keep old category scheme by assigning one more translation unit for categorization because there are no the only way to translate a phrase - two translators will translate the same category name using two ways and you will get duplicates - that's not what we need. We can't forse translators to check if the category was translated somewhere (it seems to be very complicated) as well. Another way is to create monster-like template with switch for ALL cat's and their localized names but IMO that's a bad way which needs a lot of maintance. About redirects - are category redirects working now? AFAIK they were not. --BaseSat (talk) 20:10, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

License templates[edit]

Should we move to the Translate extension all the license templates, e.g. {{PD-RusEmpire}}?

If yes, I suggest a translating-templates-week for TAs and translators Smile -- Ата (talk) 11:54, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

I'm sure that we definitely should move all translateble stuff to the extension. But I see no point in week - actually there is enough work for translating-templates-year but people who want to do the stuff just do it when they want :) But but there are still not all policies pages moved to the new system - IMO we should work on them first. --BaseSat (talk) 20:04, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
I think we should do one (small) template first, show it to everybody and discuss it. We do not want to do the work twice. --Jarekt (talk) 13:38, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Geocoding[edit]

I think we should translate Commons:Geocoding. --Jarekt (talk) 16:34, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

$1 variable in Commons:Quality images[edit]

I noticed a malfunction of $1 (a number of QI) on translated pages of Commons:Quality images. It always displays "-100". ----Chrumps (talk) 22:50, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

I filed bug #60604 that is directly related to this problem. odder (talk) 23:21, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Help with pages already using the translation[edit]

Hi I was lately experimenting with this extension on a few small pages. Everything seems to work fine, but one issue I have is that subpages created by the extension seem to be in the same categories as the main page. I must be doing something wrong. See for example Commons:Senate of Poland, or Commons:Józef Piłsudski Institute of America. Can someone help me fix it. --Jarekt (talk) 14:08, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

i18n of Template:Assessments[edit]

Please comment. --Ricordisamoa 19:06, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

If needed I can help with moving Polish text to the new format. --Jarekt (talk) 19:52, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
It will be hard to migrate all pages to the new system while preserving the old history. --Ricordisamoa 21:58, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes I do not know how it was intended to be done. --Jarekt (talk) 04:14, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
If it is not important to preserve the old history, we can start a new translatable page from scratch and use it within the soon-to-be-ready Module:Assessments. --Ricordisamoa 17:39, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

tvar[edit]

Hi,

See on Commons:Photo_challenge/Voting_header/en the tvar markup, even though it does not appear on the French translated page. Any idea what went wrong?

Jean-Fred (talk) 09:45, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

There seems to be some kind of issue with the translate extension (specifically FuzzyBot updating the translations). I just performed a null edit without changing any translations and marked the page for translation again which triggered FuzzyBot to do the required changes. I noticed this myself before but don't know what is causing this yet. --Patrick87 (talk) 10:03, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, was already wondering what triggered this edit. -- Rillke(q?) 10:10, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Huh, that’s a weird one. Well, thanks Patrick87 for solving it :) Jean-Fred (talk) 10:30, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

GSoC 2014 proposal for page migration under the Translate extension[edit]

Hello everyone!

I am Pratik Lahoti (User:BPositive) from Pune, India. I am willing to participate in the Google Summer of Code this year. I am interested in the project titled - “Tools for mass migration of legacy translated wiki content”.

My mentors for this project would be Niklas Laxström and Federico Leva.

With their help, I have drafted the first version of my proposal page. You can find it here:

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Translate/Mass_migration_tools

This project is a blessing in disguise for all the translation administrators, as it completely automates the tedious manual task of preparing the pages for translation as well as importing the translations. The proposal page mentions the Project Outline and the approach/solution towards the problem statement. I am done with most of the sections and left with the Project Schedule (which I will finish off when everything is finalized).

Please have a look at the proposal and give your valuable feedback/suggestions. While I have no problems in replying to the suggestions put forth over here, I would appreciate if you can do the same on the discussion page of the proposal, so that all the feedback is at one single place. Looking forward to hearing from you, Thank you! BPositive (talk) 05:01, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Translate tags messing up section headers[edit]

According to some discussion I had with Steinsplitter at User talk:Steinsplitter/Archive/2014#Adding translation tags, the translate tags are causing section headers to act like they are not section headers at all, and repeatedly return errors when attempting to edit specific sections. Steinsplitter has referred me to bugzilla:58946 as the cause of the issue, but I'm wondering, can we arrange a workaround for this issue in the meantime so that the rest of us can correct basic typos, etc? TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 13:50, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Does it shown like this?--AldNonUcallin?☎ 00:23, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
I added my comments in the bugzilla ticket to link to the test case I used at https://test.wikipedia.org/wiki/G87172 TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 07:59, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I saw your comment that's why I ask, so the bug replace or moving the tag to some incorrect place then?--AldNonUcallin?☎ 16:43, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
In my opinion, it seemed to be incorrect placement of translation tags that was causing the problem. However, Steinsplitter has insisted that the placement was correct and that it was the result of a MediaWiki bug. So I did a little investigation of my own to try and find the root cause of this issue. As Steinsplitter is a translation administrator on Commons, and he has worked with the translate tool for a lot longer time than I have, I am obliged to defer to his judgement on this matter, but I still wanted to express my concerns towards him. TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 19:39, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
It is not a incorrect placement of translation tags, see mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation administration#Markup_examples (Wrong & Correct). --Steinsplitter (talk) 21:05, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I see where you're coming from. My apologies if my posts appeared to attack you in any way. But this is still a problem with MediaWiki, and I'd like to see a workaround for the problem even if only temporary so we can get back to improving the wiki. Let's search for a solution to this bug together, shall we? TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 21:12, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Chinese translations needed for Search vehicles of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and Category:Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Chinese and Korean needed for Category:Asiana Airlines Flight 214[edit]

I did what I could with Search vehicles of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, but Mandarin Chinese translations are needed for Search vehicles of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and for all files in Category:Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

Also does anyone mind checking if any files at Category:Asiana Airlines Flight 214 are in need Mandarin and/or Korean? If there is a lack of Korean and/or Mandarin in any file there, please add it. In addition if anyone knowing Mandarin or Korean wants, would someone mind adding Mandarin and/or Korean subtitles to the audio file File:AAR214-KSFO-Crash.ogg? WhisperToMe (talk) 10:09, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Localization[edit]

Please mark the whole page for translation! // WikiPhoenix [Talk] 12:18, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

The text below "Project pages" must be revised mentioning the translate extension. -- Rillke(q?) 13:38, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks for the quick reply! // WikiPhoenix [Talk] 20:12, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Policy pages[edit]

It looks like there are 4(+1) policy pages and their translated pages remain to be converted. Any takers?

And maybe we should also convert Commons:Policies_and_guidelines. whym (talk) 14:07, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Administrators[edit]

Hi, can someone mark Commons:Administrators for translation? Also, the usual language translation header doesn't appear on Commons:Bureaucrats for some reason. // WikiPhoenix [Talk] 15:02, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Please mark Commons:Patrol and Commons:Autoconfirmed users too. // WikiPhoenix [Talk] 17:06, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
Commons:Bureaucrats✓Fixed the header.
Commons:Autoconfirmed users✘Page is protected. Need a TA with administrator rights tag & mark it up.
✓ Done --Jarekt (talk) 16:46, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Commons:Patrol✓Tagged & marked up.
Migration is needed for all three pages. --WikiBronze [T] 02:54, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
@WikiBronze: (Migration) You must ensure existing translations don't get lost or hidden, or translators will be unhappy and we'll lose them. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:51, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter Thanks for the heads up! a fellow TA has handled the migration process. Let me know if you notice anything missing. --WikiBronze [T] 01:22, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter, WikiBronze: I'd encourage TAs to find and notify translators who worked on the page, tell them how to find older translations, and ask to update. In my experience this works especially if the older translated page is relatively new (i.e., last updated within months rather than years). Google Translate is useful to determine matching fragments and copy-and-paste into the Translate's interface, too. --whym (talk) 11:06, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
I support Whym's suggestion. It would be a good way to find people for help in migration process as asked of TAs. By the way, Whym was the "fellow TA" that handled the migration process for the pages above :) --WikiBronze [T] 16:11, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks! // WikiPhoenix [Talk] 21:44, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
    • WikiPhoenix, migration did not magically happen by itself as far as I can see, can you import the old translations for these pages? Thanks. --Nemo 22:04, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
      • I'm guessing you are mixing up WikiBronze and me, since importing translations isn't something a regular user like me can pull off. Clin // WikiPhoenix [Talk] 23:12, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
        • WikiPhoenix, no, I'm asking you as the original requestor. :) Importing old translations is just a matter of copy and paste, so it's certainly something you can do. --Nemo 23:53, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
          • I just tried to copy-paste from here to here, but I couldn't because I don't have the permission to edit it. // WikiPhoenix [Talk] 23:57, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Roadmap[edit]

Hi folks,

I have written some modest personal thoughts about an internationalisation roadmap at User:Jean-Frédéric/i18n roadmap. I would be happy to hear your thoughts.

Thanks, Jean-Fred (talk) 13:22, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

I started playing with translating templates, see {{I18n/manufacturer}}. I am not sure if it works, since I can not convince it to show non-english version. If I use {{I18n/manufacturer}} and switch the language to lets say polish than I still see "Manufacturer". --Jarekt (talk) 17:50, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Template:Photo challenge winner[edit]

Hi, I've tried to add {{Autotranslate}} to {{Photo challenge winner}} without success. Since the German translation uses the first parameter at the end, but the Swedish translation follows the English parameter order, I though it would be convenient for the translator to be able to place the parameters where ever he/she wants in the translation. Is this possible? // WikiPhoenix [Talk] 12:51, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Unless I misunderstood, no, it's not possible. What's the purpose of changing parameter order? --Nemo 22:05, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
I wanted to find a way to keep the translation intact when using Autotranslate. // WikiPhoenix [Talk] 23:00, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Category:User interface language dependent templates[edit]

Hello, it's a bit depressing to look at the numbers here (about 3500 templates to translate considering autotranslate and langswitch only) and compare them to Special:PageTranslation, which has only few hundreds pages in total. Autotranslate templates are supposed to be well structered already, can't they be migrated to Translate with the help of bots now that the translation system is quite established here? What sort of help is needed?

mw:Extension:Translate/Mass_migration_tools is supposed to help especially with the tricky cases, but without a solid local experience of migration it will be hard for Commons to prioritise what its needs are from a project like that or in general. m:Meta:Babylon/Translation stats shows that things are rather quiet here compared to other wikis. --Nemo 22:02, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Is there a Translation Help page?[edit]

In fact this is the only page I found (over Commons:Help desk menu) I don't found any and asked also first on COM:Translation: → Talkpage cross link. -- Perhelion 08:43, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Maybe this page is the only one indeed. What kind of help do you need? -- Ата (talk) 04:45, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
Ok its may a main issue in categories in focus of Commons. Some categories have no description or are not fully understandable. For concrete the plain disc and circle category. As I you can see the interwiki link for German has a conflict with Wikipedia (Wikidata) de:Scheibe, there is no correspondence an is something other. Many possible translation http://www.dict.cc/?s=plain = flach, einfach? Maybe w:plane_(geometry)? It made not really sense for me. Thanks -- Perhelion 17:41, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
There is a problem here for sure. I found a note on category:Circles page: "For plain undecorated circles, see Category:Plain circles and Category:Plain discs" (I think 'plain' here means flach & einfach at the same time). I am not good at categorization logic and hope that someone else will answer here. -- Ата (talk) 20:21, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
There is a Help:Translation tutorial page, but it needs to be translated into other languages. Delphi234 (talk) 17:22, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

It would be helpful to have a central "Translation requests" page, that was viewed from all languages. For example, right now I need abbreviations for months of the year in all languages, and two items translated, for the image:2014 Ebola Outbreak Monthly Cases per day.svg.

Testers welcomed for new feature - Special:PageMigration[edit]

As a Google Summer of Code Intern, I have been working on the Mass Migration tools project for Wikimedia. We are now ready with a minimal working product. The tool helps translators and translation administrators import the old translations into the Translate Extension.

An instance of the same has been set up on labs. You can find some useful instructions on the main page.

Please test the tool and report bugs/suggestions using the link provided on the main page itself. You can have a look at the tracking bug to check already reported bugs.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Cheers. BPositive (talk) 13:39, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

@pagemigration.wmflabs.org: i see a lot of php errors. --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:45, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Serbian translations[edit]

Hello. Nevenka Antić, CC Serbia legal lead has told me that the localization/translation of CC license templates is wrong in two minor places. Namely, most of the templates start with "Ова датотека је доступна под лиценцом", which should be "Ова датотека је објављена под лиценцом". Also, here and here word "расподељујете" should be replaced with "дистрибуирате". Bear in mind that this is only sr-ec version, as there's also sr version (which should be identical to sr-ec), as well as sr-el (in which case the replaced words should be "objavljena" and "distribuirate" respectively). --Filip (§) 14:49, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Mass migration tools approaching conclusion, feast now[edit]

It will be a tough ride to finish the project (if at all possible), but I highly recommend to use Special:PageMigration now: just today, with its help I managed to make almost a thousand edits and migrate several pages including some huge ones. Even in big pages it often works surprisingly well (almost nothing to do manually), while in others it fails spectacularly (but we have some ideas on how to fix it).

With only ten days of coding left, more than ever it's useful if you use the tool on at least one page and comment on the bugs to help us prioritise, or even better report new problems/ideas we've not identified yet. --Nemo 23:45, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Tpt-translation-intro[edit]

Hi,

  • could a "real" administrator please fix the spelling error ("though" -> "through") on above page?
  • while we're at it, we could possibly collect some translations of the interface message for other languages, too.

Regards, --Patrick87 (talk) 20:35, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

If any of you can prepare patch for this template's i18n or do it, it will be very appreciated. — revi^ 10:08, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Images[edit]

There is a category, Category:Translation possible, but is there a place to request translations? There are over 5,000 images in Category:Translation possible - SVG, and I have been working on them, but if someone wants to request a translation, I can add the necessary <switch> elements, and do a rough translation (a native speaker needs to check and correct each language). It is slow work though, and takes up to a day for each one. There are eight versions of Top 200 images that should use vector graphics, but a Top 200 images that need to be translated page would be helpful (using the Translation possible - SVG category).

A couple of (fairly) new multilingual tags I'm hoping to make more multilingual[edit]

In the last year or so, I've created a couple of multilingual tags that I'm hoping to see be more widely translated. One is {{Photo scan}}, which denotes that an image was created from scanning a photograph; it has existed for over a year and has already been translated into a handful of languages. The other is the brand-new {{Other available license options}}, which denotes that there are other available license options for the given image in addition to the primary one (that presumably precedes this tag); as of yet, it has yet to be translated. I would greatly appreciate any and all translations that are added to these two multilingual tags. Thanks! Michael Barera (talk) 04:12, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

If you guys can translate {{NMoK}}, that would be really appreciated too. — revimsg 15:02, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

FuzzyBot not overwriting stuff?[edit]

Hi all. I've made a change to Commons:Checkusers/Statistics on 7 November here. Commons:Preparing a page for translation says that "FuzzyBot will now overwrite all existing translations with the source version (English)". But FuzzyBot only overwrote the source version as it seems here. Did I do something wrong? Why did they only overwrite the source version and not all the other lanuage versions? Trijnsteltalk 20:14, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

All ok with your edit, it is because of a bug. --Steinsplitter (talk) 20:17, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Mark for translation[edit]

This pretty good system (no wiki at all) don't allows changes, so mark for translation the last changes :Commons:Photo challenge. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 17:32, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Please fix the translaton tags first (see documentation on mediawiki) and if viewing the page with a small PC, the black text is behind the white box.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Steinsplitter (talk • contribs)
I couldn't understand the problem in translation, can you fix the problems?? This is the first time that I tried, the rest, I let the problems, cause I couldn't get, as I can't test that.
"Skip to" is now untranslated, so I tried to put that, and remove parts of the text that was too prolix.
The white box, I already fixed before, but, as I'm stupid a used a old code.
Could you help me?
Obs:Why we can't mark for translation, as the documentation talks? This is strange... Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 05:35, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
So what's the problem here: User:Rodrigo.Argenton/test 2.
For better experience paste this code ^ in the Commons:Photo challenge.
Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 06:26, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Please read the couplet documentation on mediawiki, your tagging is wrong. --Steinsplitter (talk) 07:06, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Well, now I think that I get, but, as you can see here:Commons:Photo challenge, we had the same problem, that's why I copy...
So, I fix a lot of "non tag to translate" texts, I think that I could now fix the things that you are saying here, and I cut a little more of the fat.
I rearrange the numbers, and include the possibility to translate the templates.
Steinsplitter is fixed? Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 21:41, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
One week, no answer and the guy starts a edition war... Nice job! And why are you reverting, because, as far I now, we can fix after the page is there, and this is a wiki Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 14:09, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

You are edit warring, i also noticed that you was blocked for personal attacks a while ago. Please read the documentation page again see my comment on the Photo c. talkpage. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:12, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
"i also noticed that you was blocked for personal attacks a while ago"
How this interfere here? That's your help?
"TA makeup broken, styl is looking bad with small PC's" but this is not the same code, so "again"??????????????????????????????????????????
And then, I changed the code, again, and you simply reverted "TA makeup broken, styl is looking bad with small PC's", but you do not even saw what I did... So you created a edition war, because you are to lazy to check...
And until now, you do not show me what's the problem, I read all documentation, all documentation, and a applied exactly as they ask for...
For me, this is a bullshit, and you are just not wanting the change, and making excuses for that.
If you have time to type, revert, stalk me, you have time to fix the "errors", if there is... Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 16:08, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
Please moderate your language, and see Commons talk:Photo challenge#New_style. Your change seems NOT OK. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:10, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
No arguments, so now the threats phase...
Sorry, Your Highness of morality and proper costumes...
q.e.d. no problems pointed in the TA, so threats, and pointing in another direction to not admit the (I cannot say the name of that, because I'm a inferior, the superiors caste will punish me)...
Just one thing, you can threat me, fool me, ignore my help request, but do not yell at me, ok? Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 16:30, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
The section is not solved, because you do not pointed the problem, so I need some one to show that, as you are not capable. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 05:24, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Photo challenge - edit links[edit]

Hello,
not sure where I should post this question, but somebody pointed out to me that the edit links of integrated subpages don't appear on translated pages - which is a bit of a problem in this case, as that's one of two possibilities to reach the submitting page for the challenges (even though I have to admit that I don't know if it's a new problem or not).
Does anybody know why that happened and if it's possible to have the sections of the subpage editable in translated versions?
Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 08:46, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Do you think about the [edit] links? They are missing because you can’t edit the page directly (editing the whole page also gives an error message). Just click on the Translate tab at the top of the page, and you can edit translations by translation units. I hope I answered your question. --Tacsipacsi (talk) 18:05, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Not really, as the missing link isn't on the page itself, but on the integrated subpage that doesn't use the translation tool (we use {{LangSwitch}} there) - and we don't want to change the text, people want to submit pictures to the challenges (which they do by editing the gallery). Further, El Grafo's answer here (in German) shows that there was a time when those [edit]-links did exist... Anna reg (talk) 18:34, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
I don’t know what the problem was, but see them now. --Tacsipacsi (talk) 19:35, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Really? I still don't see them on the translated pages (e.g. Commons:Photo_challenge/de)... Anna reg (talk) 08:15, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
