Help for namespace

Hello. I'm contributor (since 2011) and administrator (recently) in Mongolian Wikipedia. In Mongolian Wikipedia should change some Namespace name in headline bar. Especially "Category". But i can't discover editing source. How can suit this.

In my opinion〈Category:〉 namespace — should not 〈Ангилал:〉, but should 〈Анги:〉. Example: 〈Ангилал:Франц〉 → 〈Анги:Франц〉

MongolWiki (talk)00:20, 13 April 2014

See Translating:MediaWiki#Translating_namespace_names: [1]. You should have a local discussion to confirm this though, e.g. at portal talk:mn with a link where other editors will see it.

Nemo (talk)05:06, 13 April 2014

Thank you. Here discussion begin.

MongolWiki (talk)05:29, 14 April 2014

I used "Extended MediaWiki translation". But it doesn't work in our Wikipedia headline. What problem, pls?

MongolWiki (talk)01:58, 19 April 2014

The message documentation refers to non-existent messages "Jsonconfig-bool", etc.

Shirayuki (talk)08:36, 12 April 2014

I fixed the docs.

This message needs GENDER support, with the current username.

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)10:10, 14 March 2014

Please report this in bugzilla.

Siebrand16:50, 8 April 2014

Shouldn't this be in English?

Mogoeilor (talk)04:39, 15 April 2014

Which page(s) would you like to see deleted?

Siebrand14:40, 15 April 2014

Can we avoid markup in the message?

Nike (talk)16:52, 16 April 2014

I don't know if the break was added to keep a rectangle more square or something like that. You'd better check with Santhosh...

Siebrand18:03, 16 April 2014

Could this do without the word new?

Nike (talk)16:53, 16 April 2014

I think this word adds an important clue. It's not a word like "successfully" that if often observed.

Siebrand18:01, 16 April 2014

This could just be "Unexpected error: $1"

Nike (talk)17:01, 16 April 2014

I think the verbosity is more user friendly.

Re-enabling Lakota for localisation

Hi! I wish to enable Lakota for localisation. Its language code is "lkt," and its name is "Lakota - Lakȟótiyapi (lkt)." This language is LTR (left to right) and it is written in the Roman script (i.e. what I'm writing in right now). As you can see on its portal, it already has a translator (me).

Waagoshens (talk)22:25, 18 February 2014

Since no fallback is mentioned, this language will use the default fallback of English in MediaWiki.

Lloffiwr (talk)13:34, 1 March 2014

That's correct.

Waagoshens (talk)03:14, 7 March 2014

Waagoshens: are you going to be working on the Wikipedia incubator project for lkt?

Lloffiwr (talk)23:52, 27 March 2014

Yes, but under the username "Waagosh." (I tried making an account with the same name here, but the site was being bizarre and I ended up having to create a second account, "Waagoshens," in order to be able to write anything.)

Waagoshens (talk)00:16, 8 April 2014

Portal:lkt now fixed. Happy translating.

Lloffiwr (talk)22:00, 15 April 2014

Please enable Han-Nom Vietnamese (vi-Hani)

As the traditional writing system for Vietnamese, Han-Nom is an important script for Vietnam and the world. As a matter of fact, Han-Nom was created in Vietnam at least as early as the 13th century, and it remained dominant until the early 20th century. The present commonly used Quoc Ngu is the romanized script of Han-Nom. The relationship between Han-Nom and Quoc Ngu is just like ئۇيغۇرچە (Uyghur (Arabic script)) and Uyghurche (Uyghur (Latin script)), Hanzi and Pinyin, etc.

To date, there are still many old people, historians, writers, as well as many young people write and learn it in Vietnam as well as other countries of the world. It is necessary to create the Han-Nom Vietnamese interface for MediaWiki.

  • Language (script) name: Han-Nom Vietnamese
  • Language (script) name as used by native speakers: 㗂越 or 㗂越(漢喃)
  • Code: vi-Hani
    • Language code (ISO 639): vi
    • Script code (ISO 15924): Hani
  • Writing direction: LTR

I have already translated (more accurately, converted) more than a half of the MediaWiki language file into Han-Nom Vietnamese (an example of a Han-Nom Vietnamese Wiki: [1]. Translation needs to be continued.), I would like to provide all my translated part to MediaWiki, and hope to get more assistance from other people. Since it is not a language, we only need to convert Vietnamese Quoc Ngu to Han-Nom, it seems not so difficult.

Betoseha (talk)09:29, 13 April 2014

This script is no longer used for Vietnamese, so there doesn't need to be a localisation for it.

Siebrand13:32, 14 April 2014
  1. There are still a great number of people using it in Vietnam as well as the world;
  2. Almost no one use Latin, Classical Chinese now, but Latin Wikipedia, Classical Chinese Wikipedia are all exist.
Betoseha (talk)09:07, 15 April 2014
  • No, there are not. See the Wikipedia page on the Vietnamese language.
  • Re 2: Past errors are examples of what to not repeat.

This message probably needs punctuation.

Siebrand17:27, 14 April 2014

Function name should be in code tags.

Siebrand16:49, 14 April 2014

Should this be "The UPGRADE key you provided..."?

Siebrand16:37, 14 April 2014

Put LocalSettings.php in code tags.

Siebrand14:53, 14 April 2014

Probably needs punctuation.
