How to change the translation parameter in Tamil[edit]

Few translations are wrong in this template.For example Author--> ஆசிரியர் is correct. But it says பங்களிப்பாளர்(contributor). Will you please give the link of translatewiki to tanslate properly. Info-farmer (talk) 02:10, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Additional parameters[edit]

I am from ta.wikisource. We added additional parameters to Index namely with our community consensus

| Pages        =
| Size         =

How can i add those parameters? To get the data from these 2200 PDFs with CC0 licesne, one of our contributor wrote a ruby programme.And also we are going to upload nearly 10,000 PDFs with CC0 licesne.--Info-farmer (talk) 17:14, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

We add parameters after reaching community consensus as well. I think adding "size", or "dimensions" is a good idea and I would support it. However I am not sure about "pages". I assume it is for number of pages in the book. How other feel about those 2?--Jarekt (talk) 01:55, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
yes, 'pages' means 'number of pages in the book'--Info-farmer (talk) 08:04, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

@Bodhisattwa: Will you please furnish your bn.community's consensus ?--Info-farmer (talk) 15:40, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Multi-language books[edit]

Any way correctly describe multi-language books? Many 19 century books from Russia using two languages — some European and official (like that has two parallel text in Russian and French). Also Vocabularies, Grammatics etc are existing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Artem.komisarenko (talk • contribs) 06:14, 03 October 2016 (UTC)
