i18n Proposal[edit]

The current template flow is:

1 Created with Xyz one main template for each tool "Xyz", currently more than 130
2 Created with Xyz/lc one template for (each tool × each language)
3 Created with/lc one template for each language, currently 50
4 Created with one template

From about 192 ISO 639-1 there are about 56 most-important languages, with entries for only 50 languages, see the table below. Of course, there are not the (2) templates for every language - many languages are missing. Nevertheless there is quite a lot of (2) templates; they are doing almost the same for each tool.
By investigating this situation, the idea rises to simplify that structure:
when the templates (1) pass some more parameters to templates (2), one template (2) for each language, but independent of the tool, might be enough, reducing the currently large number of templates (2). This will also ensure that much more languages can be translated, and that every main template can access all translated languages.

1 Created with Xyz one main template for each tool "Xyz", currently more than 130
2 Created with .../lc one template only for each of the languages (currently ~ 50)
3 Created with/lc one template for each language (currently ~ 50)
4 Created with one template

It would be nice to combine (2) with (3), such reducing 2 × 50 templates to 50; but the 50 templates (3) are used also by many other templates (2) from the non-SVG templates.

It seemed not too much effort to generate the Created with .../lc (left column in the table) templates for all the
languages where now a translation template "Created with/lc" (second column in the table) exists: (default icons are shown only there)

Advantages[edit]

It is easy to add more languages. It is easy to add more tools. It is easy to change main templates from the current structure to the new one.
All main templates can use the full translation capability, without own subtemplates - if a new main template is created, no other template is necessary.

The established current template-and-subtemplate structure needs identical names to show where a translation subtemplate is used.
The new concept is much simpler and independent of names, all main templates are using the same set of translation subtemplates:

  • When a new SVG created with- or Created with-template is needed, no other templates - neither docu nor translations - are necessary.
  • Every one of these templates has the full set of all (currently ~50) translations; each alteration and each new translation serves all templates.

Disadvantages[edit]

It's a new idea.

Old problems[edit]

Links, e.g. to special tools, are not available in every language. "Common" tools like Adobe or Inkscape have pages in most languages, but the more exotic a tool is the greater is the chance to miss its page in languages with fewer pages. The old structure, with an own subtemplate for each tool and each language, can avoid red links when (at the time of the template's development) a special tool does not exist in a special sister project. With the new concept, one language template will be used for all devices, not knowing whether the page exists. When in a language the link to the tool is shown red, it can be seen as a request to generate the missing article.

Another solution could be to provide an I18 template with the entries for the tools, where every tool is represented either with a link or with plain text, depending on the current situation in every language.

In the old structure where each "Created with"-template could have a translation template for each language, special names (as e.g. Scribus "typeset") could be used language-dependent. This is now easier to perform with the topic element.

The dummy template Created with ...[edit]

This is rather an example template than something for real use. It can be used, for testing purposes, even with {{Image generation}} where it is invoked with either "..." or the abbreviation letter "J". Its default tool is Sodipodi, it can treat SVG, non-SVG and it can display codes. It shows all the translation subtemplates, and it shows examples with different topics and settings: when used in the language to be tested it displays examples for SVG, non-SVG, W3C-valid/invalid/uncheckable and large SVG. Therefore it is possible for somebody knowing a special language, to see on the first glance whether the translations work correctly.

Tanslation help[edit]

There are examples how to expand the internationalization templates, for languages with different grammatical properties. Genderless languages are of course easy, like the en version.
Examples for more complicated languages can as well be found (de fr es it pl pt nl ...); it may become necessary to expand the translations contained in the template:Igen/top.
