Hello. where do I find the message group of new filters for recent changes? Also what is the easy way to find any new interface message added to wikipedia?
I would say, but can you give an example of a such message so that I know what you mean exactly.
Did the translation appear over there yet? I don't see it.
Glacious, note that you should translate, not customise. The content of your translation seems very different (there are no per-browser instructions, as far as I can see). If you want to change the message in MediaWiki, you have to propose so to the developers.
The documentation says these messages do support GENDER, but the translation interface does not accept it (it says that $2 is an unknown parameter).
Sending a request to add the Kaqchikel language. It currently is in the incubator:
and a part of activities leading up to an edit-a-thon will be to begin the translation process:
There are native Kaqchikel speakers available and willing to participate in this process.
We need the following information:
- A language code from ISO 639-3 or the Ethnologue website (for example 'de')
- The language name in English and in its own language (for example 'German – Deutsch (de)')
- Is the language RTL or LTR (written from right to left or left to right)
- If the language is commonly written in more than one script, please say in which script the language should be enabled. Other variants can be enabled as and when translators for those variants volunteer.
- Should the language fall back to another language other than English? If so which?
Thanks for the quick reply! Here is the information requested:
- A language code from ISO 639-3 or the Ethnologue website (for example 'de’) - CAK
- The language name in English and in its own language (for example 'German – Deutsch (de)’) - Kaqchikel (in English & auto-denominated)
- Is the language RTL or LTR (written from right to left or left to right) - Left to Right
- If the language is commonly written in more than one script, please say in which script the language should be enabled.
- Other variants can be enabled as and when translators for those variants volunteer. - Latin Script
- Should the language fall back to another language other than English? If so which? Spanish
In the past, Google can search translations in translatewiki, but now Google cannot search them, the problem archived here is re-opened. Could you enable Google to search the translations?

Please add the Southern Uzbek Language (uzs), which is written in the Perso-Arabic letters of the Arabic writing system to the list of translation languages.
More informations needed:
- Autonym (i.e. how do you call that language in that language?)
- Fallback to which language(s)? Or just translate from English?

By looking out phab:T187181, it looks like this site is also having a lot of Tidy-era tabel formations, how are they still maintainable now?
There are some translations of words are different in zh-HK (Hong Kong dialect) and zh-TW (Taiwan dialect). But these two languages fallback to zh-hant. What is the best way to solve this problem?
Actually, we can translate messages to zh-hk, but as far as I've asked in phab:T170836, there's collaboration problems that no repositories can update their zh-hk messages, need more suggestions on this problem.

We would like to integrate Translatewiki.net with our project. The project's name is MAZI, the main output of the project is the MAZI toolkit and we would like to translate the software part of the MAZI toolkit.
We are in a very active phase of our development and it would be great if we have your support for translating the MAZI portal. We are going to give to translatewiki staff push rights to our repo in order to integrate new translations.
We already support i18n and our files are in yaml format.
Looking forward for your reply about the next steps for the integration of translatewiki and the MAZI toolkit.
Could you point out where the i18n files are in https://github.com/mazi-project/portal/? With quick search I only found config.yaml, but i18n strings should be separated from other configuration.
You can find the i18n strings in the locales/ folder https://github.com/mazi-project/portal/tree/master/locales.
We have prepared the en file for english and the el file (Greek) for testing, translated directly from google translate.
Thanks a lot for your support
version-message-1: "This Portal is " version-message-2: "commits` behind."
Can you use variables? We call these lego messages and they are problematic for proper translations.
framadate-tab: subheader1: "Description" paragraph1: "Framadate is an open-source and free application like Doodle. It’s easy to create an appointment or a survey without registration to invite your collaborations." paragraph2: "Here is how to works" paragraph3: "" paragraph4: "" paragraph5: "" paragraph6: ""
Can the empty message be filled or removed?
Please also start adding message documentation.
OK we edited the lego messages we had and we now use variables instead.
We also filled the empty messages.
Regarding the message documentation, it is not clear to us what exactly we are supposed to do. Could we have some examples of code to check? Should we create a separate documentation page? Or it is something we can do as soon as have the MAZI project integrated in translatewiki page?
Thank you for supporting us.
Hello, could any of the administrators delete the following pages:
The first is no longer marked for translation, and the latter was created by mistake. Thanks.
Before I had searching some word like अविशिष्टपृष्ठम्, which may use in some translation, so I had get result properly. It had shown me where is the usage of the word. But now It has completely changed. Now I can not get any result. Please help to find word अविशिष्टपृष्ठम्/sa/ Thank you.
I'm trying to start translating text for a Tunica-language wikipedia. Here is the required info about the language:
- ISO 639-3 language code: tun
- Language name: Tunica – Yoroni (tun)
- Left-to-right language
Is more information needed? What can I do to make this happen?
I checked Wikipedia and ethnologue and they both say it's a basically dead language with no fluent speakers. This makes me doubt how are you able to translate MediaWiki which contains many technical terms to this language. Is there a standard orthography? We are having troubles with other languages here where there is no standard orthography and then translators are fighting with each other about correct spelling.
I completely understand your skepticism. The language is being revitalized, much like Manx or Cornish have been. There is a standard orthography, a textbook, children's books, and other materials. Information can be found at the University of Hawaii's Catalogue of Endangered Languages (elcat). The revitalization project, of which the Tunica-Biloxi tribe itself is the main driver, continues to gain momentum, and we have several editors up to the task, with over 50 years of combined experience with the language. We're eager to get started on translating.
Thanks so much for your help.
Rejected. Heritage language of the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Marksville, Avoyelles Parish, Louisiana. There is no benefit in creating this as a UI language. Please focus your efforts on digitizing the language corpus, etc.
There is a great benefit to creating this as a UI language for the students who are learning it. I appreciate the suggestion to focus on "digitizing the corpus, etc." but that has already been done. The comment seems to imply that the language has no current speakers. The page from which the heritage language quote is pulled clearly shows that this is not the case.
Why has Cornish, which also has a small number of L2 speakers and no L1 speakers, been granted not only translatewiki permission but also its own wikipedia page, while Tunica can't even get past this step? If there is a lower limit to the number of L2 speakers that must exist in order for a wikipedia UI to be beneficial, or something else that differentiates Tunica from Cornish, please advise.
I realize that the service offered here isn't vital to the continued revitalization of the Tunica language (nor was it vital to Cornish), but it would be helpful, and it's disappointing that a single sentence in contradiction of everything that's been updated more recently can scuttle approval. If you require more proof that people speak and use this language, I'd be more than happy to provide it. There are people who want to learn in this language, as there are people who want to learn in Cornish. There is no one who speaks Cornish who doesn't also speak English, but this does not mean it wasn't beneficial to create a Cornish Wikipedia. In the same vein, it is indeed beneficial to allow for the creation of a Tunica Wikipedia.
I hope you reconsider your rejection. Additionally, I hope that, as the wheels of bureaucracy gradually turn and more updates are made on the sites of various gatekeepers of language status, it will hopefully become harder for people to find outdated information on the Tunica language that they can use to inappropriately justify rejection of a spoken language for translation.
Niklas asked for my opinion. I am not opposed to adding it. Does it add any significant maintenance overhead?
The Language committee is usually flexible when it comes to translatewiki, because it's not really part of Wikimedia. It's stricter about eligibility and approval of going out the Incubator, so I'm not saying anything about that here, as I'm really not sure what the outcome will be. But since we're mentioning the Incubator here, and since User:StevenJ81 has been so amazingly helpful lately with cleaning up old requests at Meta: Steven, can you please check whether it can be eligible?
Also, just out of curiosity: User:Plandu, can I take a look at some digitized texts? Can they be made available for Wikisource? (It's mostly a matter of license.)
This language can be created. I trust SIL to know what it is doing.
