Interface administrator ahoy

Aloha,

Please, could someone copy the contents of MediaWiki:Mobile-frontend-copyright/fy to MediaWiki:Copyright/fy. The message was reworded upstream, and the article 'de' should be removed (it could also be 'it' depending on the license name).

And one other small request over here:

Thank you very much!

Delete page

Please erase this page, I want to delete everything related to that name in google. Since I changed my name and that page doesn't make sense: https://translatewiki.net/wiki/User_talk:Navhy

Iváns (talk)15:44, 16 January 2020

To do this I think we will have to delete the redirection currently setup from https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=User:Navhy&redirect=no to https://translatewiki.net/wiki/User:Iv%C3%A1ns. I will check with Niklas on whether this is OK to do and perform this deletion. Please confirm if this is OK with you.

Regards,

Abijeet Patro (talk)10:29, 17 January 2020

Go ahead, you can do it!

Iváns (talk)13:06, 23 January 2020

It seems like that page is the default template for unavailable talk pages, for eg see: https://translatewiki.net/wiki/User_talk:AbijeetUnavailable

I don't think there is anything else that we can do here.

Regards,

Abijeet Patro (talk)04:40, 28 January 2020

I already marked it to erase. It makes no sense a page of a user that no longer exists, now all the information is already passed to my new account. I want to erase every trace on the internet of my old name

Iváns (talk)11:46, 7 February 2020

Its not about no longer existing. If you take this URL - https://translatewiki.net/wiki/User_talk:ReplaceMe and replace the "ReplaceMe" part with any other string, you will still see the same page. Its a default template that appears for non-existent talk pages, irrespective of whether the user existed before or never existed.

Phabricator's discontinuation language

I have translated over 9K or 10K messages on Phabricator's messages, but I haven't seen Turkish language in Phabricator's preferences. Are they stopped to review the languages or the bot is broken?

Baran (talk)14:31, 10 January 2020

Hi Baran

I see that the strings that you've translated are exported out to the phabricator translations repository,

Once the translations have been submitted by translatewiki, they have to be compiled to a format that Phabricator understands. See here.

Regards,

Abijeet Patro (talk)11:23, 12 January 2020

Oof. Thanks for the information.

Baran (talk)21:57, 13 January 2020

I see that some updates were made to the Phabricator's translations repository but don't see Turkish as an option in Phab's preferences. Anything else we can help with here?

Regards,

Abijeet Patro (talk)10:24, 17 January 2020

If Wikimedia Phabricator added Turkish language on preferences, I would be appreciated it. :)

Request for renaming a namespace

Edited by another user.
Last edit: 01:34, 10 January 2020

I would like to request renaming of the Template namespace on the Wikimedia projects available in Macedonian, namely Wikipedia, Wikisource, Wiktionary and Wikibooks, from "Шаблон" to "Предлошка" but still keep the redirects from "Template" and "Шаблон". The community on the Macedonian Wikipedia pays careful attention on the use of puristic terminology and therefore avoids or limits the extent to which words of foreign origin are used. While "шаблон" as a term derived from the German "Schablone" has been accommodated in the Macedonian language for a long time, the dictionary does also contain "предлошка" as a word of Slavic origin with exactly the same meaning. Importantly, this is not going to be the first case a Slavic language makes the use of this term, as the same namespace on the Croatian- and Slovene-language projects bears a variety of the same word (e.g. "Predložak" in Croatian, "Predloga" in Slovene). It is also not the first time a request for renaming a namespace on the Macedonian-language projects is filed after the File and Special namespaces had been renamed for the same puristic reason in the past. Thanks in advance.

Yes. We need to make this change as soon as possible. This needs the attention of @Siebrand:
Kiril Simeonovski (talk)10:06, 2 January 2020

Makes general sense, I can do it. Just to be extra-sure, do you have something like a community discussion about this?

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)15:59, 17 January 2020

Hello, Amir. Yes, the matter has been discussed by the most active editors, and we have had an agreement on it. The discussions however, took palce on meetings outside the wiki itself. Hope that's good enough. By the way, we already changed the interface via translatewiki here, so it says Предлошка everywhere and everyone's fine with it.

B. Jankuloski (talk)20:16, 19 January 2020

OK, I see. I'll do it.

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)14:46, 21 January 2020

And also this: 'TemplateSandbox' => [ 'ШаблонскиПесочник' ],

ПесочникПредлошки? ПредлоскиПесочник? Both are probably wrong :)

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)21:00, 21 January 2020
 

What will be the name for the "Templаte talk" namespace? "Разговор за предлошка"?

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)20:53, 21 January 2020

Yes. Exactly "Разговор за предлошка". Thank you a lot, Amir!

B. Jankuloski (talk)20:55, 21 January 2020
 

I also need new translations for these:

  • 'ExpandTemplates' => [ 'ПрошириШаблони' ],
  • 'Mostlinkedtemplates' => [ 'НајупотребуваниШаблони' ],
  • 'Uncategorizedtemplates' => [ 'НекатегоризираниШаблони' ],
  • 'Unusedtemplates' => [ 'НеискористениШаблони' ],
  • 'Wantedtemplates' => [ 'ПотребниШаблони' ],

I guess that it's:

  • 'ExpandTemplates' => [ 'ПрошириПредлошки' ],
  • 'Mostlinkedtemplates' => [ 'НајупотребуваниПредлошки' ],
  • 'Uncategorizedtemplates' => [ 'НекатегоризираниПредлошки' ],
  • 'Unusedtemplates' => [ 'НеискористениПредлошки' ],
  • 'Wantedtemplates' => [ 'ПотребниПредлошки' ],

But please verify.

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)20:57, 21 January 2020

Yes, all of them are correct.

B. Jankuloski (talk)00:42, 22 January 2020

OK, and the last one:

'TemplateSandbox' => [ 'ШаблонскиПесочник' ],
Amir E. Aharoni (talk)07:23, 22 January 2020
 
 

Hi, the matter was not discussed on wiki, but several editors agreed on this change. This is not OK without general discussion and without consulting language specialist. Regards.

MediaWiki:wikibase-property-summary-wbsetaliases-update not availabe for translation

The message MediaWiki:wikibase-property-summary-wbsetaliases-update as shown in [1] is not available for translation. Seems that it is named MediaWiki:wikibase-entity-summary-wbsetaliases-update in translatewiki, instead.

The special page giving the list of Supported languages (linked from the tools in the sidebar) no longer works. As well all subpages listing the users from one of the languages listed. Was it uninstalled unexpectedly, or disabled because a recent upgrade of Mediawiki caused was incompatible and the extension for this special page no longer works or crashes ?

S'gaw Karen Babel user Information is not written in S'gaw Karen

The S'gaw Karen Babel user information is already translated into S'gaw Karen language however, on the Portal:ksw page, the Babel user information box is written in English. Can you change it to S'gaw Karen?

SawJaemin (talk)15:03, 3 January 2020

It looks like translations are missing. Could you please translate these messages?

Raymond11:03, 11 January 2020

Yes, I have translated most of the phrases but I still haven't see the S'gaw Karen translated version on the Portal:ksw page. Why is the S'gaw Karen language not added to Wikimedia? Can you add the language? Most of the important messages is already translated.

Protnet (talk)15:54, 1 January 2020

This message contains barely any language content, so I don’t think it needs to be translated into any Latin-script language (it certainly does need to be translated into languages e.g. using different digits, though). Can this be made optional? Thanks in advance!

A sentence that makes no sense

Hi! The translatable sentence in the MediaWiki:Machinevision-desc/en makes no sense. Here it is:

 Interfaces with internal and external machine vision service providers and stores and serves results.

I've highlighted the confusing part. Please fix it and/or at least explain what it tries to say, so that I could translate it correctly.

Piramidion (talk)07:28, 12 December 2019

I assume this is an extension that can take images from MediaWiki (Wikimedia Commons?) and send them to a machine vision service. The machine vision service returns some information about the image (possibly things such as "depicts a domesticated cat, blue sky" or "a domesticated cat playing on a field") and this extensions stores this information in MediaWiki database. It probably also hooks into image pages/search to display this information and/or provides APIs through which this information can be accessed.

Nike (talk)14:12, 12 December 2019
 

Hi Piramidion, I believe that the first word, "interfaces", is the verb (as in "to interface") and not the noun. So, the sentence has three verbs: interfaces, stores, and serves.

Hamilton Abreu (talk)17:44, 12 December 2019
 

Note the first word “Interfaces” is a verb conjugated with third person. The implicit subject is “this extension”, which is also the subject for “stores” and “serves”.

Pols12 (talk)17:55, 12 December 2019

OMG, thanks! These explanations should be on the /qqq subpage (there seem to be quite a bunch of incorrect translations already). I thought that "interfaces" is a noun in the plural form.

Piramidion (talk)07:22, 13 December 2019

Please feel free to update the message description. They are freely editable.

Planned server upgrade on December 20th

We have a new server from our sponsor Netcup. It will replace both of our current servers.

The upgrade will bring the following benefits:

  • Increased performance thanks to more RAM and faster disks.
  • Room for future growth: more translations, more projects, new services.
  • More secure and easier to maintain operating system. We are switching from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to Debian 10, which is also used by Wikimedia Foundation.

The server upgrade is planned for December 20th. Based on past experience, this will involve multiple hours of read-only time and a couple of day of disruptions to the regular search, translation search and translation memory features. We will rebuild those indices rather than trying to move them over. The version of ElasticSearch backing these features is also updated.

I will put up a site notice next week.
