Ukrainian FreeCol

There is a problem with FreeCol. There are 22 untranslated messages here, but when you go to this page, it turns out that there is nothing to translate. Explain this, and possibly fix it.

Logentry-removepii-action doesn't support {{GENDER}}?

MediaWiki:Logentry-removepii-action/en seems to not support {{GENDER}} magic word, but it definitely should. Current state of that message will make it ignore user pronouns preference in many languages.

Rail (talk | translations)12:28, 16 September 2021

Greetings. I noticed that there were some changes on the wiki, which especially affected the service page for translations. Well, the new text on top has become monospaced, and this, as for me, is bad.

Bandicam 2021-09-15 23-25-56-303.png

Of course I tried to change it myself, posted above, but it creates new problems, screenshots of which I will not attach. But I noticed one very interesting thing that, in principle, here you can simply replace the class «twelve columns sourcemessage mw-editfont-monospace long» with «twelve columns sourcemessage mw-editfont long».

Fix it please.

DDPAT (talk)20:35, 15 September 2021

I can confirm. IMO monospace is wrong for normal text.

New languages

Hi, I was wondering if someone could add these 5 Pacific languages. I requested it a while a go and I filled in all the required details including some web links, but I feel like my request was forgotten. The languages are; Eastern Arrernte (aer, Arrernte Ikngerre), Pitjantjatjara (pjt, Pitjantjatjara), Australian Kriol (rop, Ropa Riba Kriol), Torres Strait Creole (tcs, Yumplatok) and Drehu (dhv, Drehu). Also, could you label Rapa Nui (because it's native to Easter Island, currently only labelled under "America"), Indonesian (because all the other Indonesian languages are labelled under both "Pacific" and "Asia") and Chinese (currently only labelled under "Asia", but should be labelled under "Pacific" too because of the large number of w:Chinese Australians and w:Chinese New Zealanders) as Pacific languages as well as their existing labels (they're already on the site). Also, Fiji Hindi (not to be confused with Hindi, spoken in most of central-northern India) should only be labelled under "Pacific" not "Pacific" and "Asia" because nobody in India/Asia speaks it. Thanks. Edit: Also could you add support for all languages in Category:Languages of Australia

MinecraftAustralia (talk)05:46, 18 August 2021

About the first part, I replied in the original request. You haven't answered an important question there.

About Rapa Nui, Indonesia, and Chinese: I submitted a patch to fix it.

About Fiji Hindi: I actually know people in Asia who do speak it :)

About adding all the languages in "Category:Languages of Australia": As with the first part, I'll be happy to add them when people who know them and actually plan to translate into them come here and ask for it.˛

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)10:01, 23 August 2021

I plan to translate into all of the original languages and I know a user who would be willing to help. And about the Fiji Hindi, sorry I didn't know it was used in Asia too. I thought someone confused it with the Indian Hindi. So, back to the main part, yes I and other people would be willing to translate into them. I hope this helps and I look forward to translating into them soon. When they are added, could you please reply to this thread so I know? Thanks.

MinecraftAustralia (talk)05:50, 24 August 2021

Can the people please create their own accounts and contribute directly? Your own user page says that your level in these languages is 1 or 2, and it's not quite right that someone who knows so little of the language writes in it. There already is an unfortunate history of people who had good intentions, wrote in a language they don't know well in Wikipedia, and caused confusion and harm.

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)03:20, 27 August 2021

I know people with accounts who would be willing to translate into these languages. For some of these languages I get info from online dictionaries (e.g for Arrernte I get most of the info from here). I still would like these languages and I hope this is done soon. Thanks.

Editing English translations

At the moment, I can't edit English messages. Can I ask permission to edit them, as some may have some errors and some formatting problems (extra spaces, missing quotation marks), etc?

DDPAT (talk)10:56, 5 September 2021

Editing the English sources is not possible/allowed. Please submit either a) a patch to Gerrit, b) file a task to Phabricator, or create new threads here and someone else will do a) or b).

Eglathrin|Sindarin|sjn

Hello, Houston. We had a problem. I translated ~500 core messages. Yesterday I've got message "Language code sjn is not valid.". What happened?

Calad-ne-dúath (talk)07:12, 27 August 2021

Hi Calad-ne-dúath,

The language code: Sjn is actually not supported by translatewiki. We recently fixed a long standing bug where translators were allowed to translate to unsupported & invalid language codes. While sjn is valid, it is not supported by translatewiki.

I'm informing one of our staff who will review if support for this can be added to translatewiki.

"You do not have permission to edit this page"

Hi,

I'm getting a "You do not have permission to edit this page because it contains raw HTML which can be modified to affect all visitors." warning when publishing some translations. What kind of authority do I need to have these translations?

Thanks

Hedda (talk)16:18, 24 August 2021

This is hopefully a temporary measure until the software will get fixed. You can reply with the links to the messages and the translations here and a translation admin will put them in place for you.

Strange, I translate EN->FR so the list of messages is shown here

and once a given message has been published, an error message is displayed because trnaslation in french is not enabled. On marche sur la tête ?

Exemple: Oppia:oppia-android-app-force network type cellular network/fr Cellular

Message d'erreur: Échec de la publication de la traduction : Translation to this language is disabled.

Christian 🇫🇷 FR (talk)16:50, 20 August 2021

Actually translations to Oppia Android app are only enabled for,

1. Arabic 2. Hindi 3. Brazilian Portuguese

It appears that there is a bug when translating messages via Recent additions where this warning is not shown properly. I'll confirm and create a bug accordingly.

As a language worker for Pite Saami, one of the editors of the Pite Saami incubator project and the main editor of the Pite Saami dictionary app BidumBágo[1], I would like to request that the language ISO 639-3 sje, bidumsámegiella be opened for editing. There is an official orthography as of August 2019; the script is Latin with a few diacritic marks (á, ä, ö) and the special letters ŋ, đ, ŧ (as well as æ and ø being used as variants of the official ä and ö. I am going to translate into the language, and we are two people for now working on the Incubator project. Thank you in advance!

Thank you very much! :-) Translating to Pite Sami comes up as a choice now. However, I still get the message posted as a screen capture in my OP when trying to translate some of the messages. Any way to find out why that's happening? (This doesn't seem to be a problem now.)

Miraheze website: nl-informal does not fall back to nl

After completing the Dutch translation to Miraheze in nl (Dutch) I created an nl-informal version. According to the instructions at Portal:nl, I've only translated the messages that differ from nl into nl-informal. However, the nl-informal version of the website appears to fall back to English instead.

McDutchie (talk)09:43, 24 August 2021

The strip goes somewhere

Where does it go? Recently, it has been constantly going somewhere. Link of one of the examples. And this happens when checking messages.

MinecraftAustralia (talk)08:20, 24 July 2021

Hi MinecraftAustralia!

I can do it, but I have a few questions:

  • Are you going to bring in people who will actually translate into these languages?
  • There are several languages called "Kriol" in our databases. Can you please give an unambiguous name?
  • Are there any other websites in these languages? Or content in these languages on any other websites?

Thanks! :)

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)11:55, 26 July 2021

Hi, sorry I replied a bit late. The Kriol is called Australian Kriol or Roper River Kriol. There aren't tons of website in these languages but neither is there in half the languages on here so yeah. There are a couple of websites in Kriol.

MinecraftAustralia (talk)08:31, 31 July 2021

Thanks!

> The Kriol is called Australian Kriol or Roper River Kriol.

How is this name written in the language itself? This looks written in standard English.

> There aren't tons of website in these languages but neither is there in half the languages on here so yeah. There are a couple of websites in Kriol.

Do you have links?

And finally, are you going to bring in people who will actually translate into these languages?

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)09:49, 2 August 2021

@Amir E. Aharoni Sorry for the late reply again. Yes, I will try to get people to translate into these languages. Here are some Kriol websites:

That's all I could find because Kriol is not written as often. However, there is a Kriol Bible and I did find some audio in Kriol:

And there are lots more. While you're at it, could you also add Drehu? Drehu is the most spoken Kanak language in New Caledonia 🇳🇨, spoken in the Loyalty Islands. Its ISO code is dhv.

MinecraftAustralia (talk)09:23, 14 August 2021

Hi,

You still haven't answered an important question: are you going to bring in people who will actually translate into these languages?

The policy on the page Translatewiki.net languages says that one of the conditions of languages to be enabled is that that there should be at least one person willing to translate into the language.

Please remove translator privileges from User:Emma Franzen, at least for Portuguese.

This user's translations are of poor quality, evidencing a lack of knowledge of the language and the subject matter.
