Commons talk:Translation possible/Learn more
This content page is int he template namespace. Shouldn't it be moved to the Commons namespace? Siebrand 10:43, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
- It is a sub-page of the template itself and therefor, I guess it is fine here. Enricopedia ⇄ 17:47, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
Is there any free online tool to edit SVG files ?. --126.96.36.199 14:48, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
Template for already translated files?
There should be a template so that already existing, translated images are shown and that no one tries to duplicate effort just because he/she didn't know that a translation was already done.
Hey! The /lang template in the top of the page is wrong, as it refers to the different versions of the template, not the help page. Please, look at it, as I hve not been able to change it. --SMP (talk page) 16:59, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
How to move the text with this
I had uploaded File:Punjab map pa.svg, which was a modification of File:Punjab map.svg, I used the tool provided with this template on the image. So how do I move the text a little. For example I translated Chandigarh to ਚੰਡੀਗੜ੍ਹ. on File:Punjab map.svg Chandigarh shows up in correct place, however, on File:Punjab map pa.svg it is way off from the city target. So how do I fix that? thank You. --Gman124 (talk) 14:27, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
- In most programs you can drag text. Consult your programs manual for details. --Nux (talk··dyskusja) 11:57, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Watch out for font sizes !
It turns out that something in Commons interprets the svg files, and in particular the texts, with a limited number of fonts. So if you translate a text which is closely encircled by larger words or sentences, and try to solve the problem by using another font, you may run up to some troubles. For example, if you try to solve the problem by using "Arial narrow" in place of "Arial", you will get into trouble, because Commons does not make any difference between these fonts, and will write your text in "Arial", that will be likely to go onto the picture, or other texts, or be clipped out of the border. So use the most common fonts ! Example : see file history of file:Phylogentic_tree_FOXP2_01-fr.svg, which I couldn't fix before several tries.
