Please block Acamicamacaraca

The following issue is open, waiting for action.


Please block Acamicamacaraca in Vandalism.

Please revoke his translation rights by next reasons:

  • using machine translations
  • inappropriate behaviour in the talkpage (deleting messages from other users).

This leads to mass creation of incorrect new translations and to the corruption of existing translations.

Please protect MediaWiki:Tag-AWB/sr-ec in 1 week.

See my reverts for his contribs and remove translator for threads in his talkpage.

Variants for Serbian

There's an ongoing discussion on the Serbian Wikipedia about enabling additional variants for that language. Given that its ortography allows the use of Ijekavian and Ekavian reflexes, an "-ijek" variant should be added for both Cyrillic and Latin (we'd then have sr-ec, sr-el, sr-ec-ijek and sr-el-ijek).

Srdjan m (talk)

23:23, 24 February 2018

Why ijek instead of ijekavsk? Anyway, both sr-ec and sr-el are making Wikidata contributors confusing and are to be renamed to sr-cyrl-ekavsk and sr-latn-ekavsk as per phab:T117845.

FWIW, in https://www.iana.org/assignments/language-subtag-registry/language-subtag-registry:

Change Wikimedia Mobile Apps text and logo to Wikimedia Mobile text and logo on main page

Hi.

I noticed that there is still project called Wikimedia Mobile Apps on translatewiki.net frontpage althought it was renamed to Wikimedia Mobile. The title, logo and link to the translating page should be replaced. (title should be Wikimedia Mobile, link should be Translating:WikimediaMobile and the logo should be File:WikipediaMobile-icon.png)

Best regards

Translate namespace

Hello, I'm Horus from Thai Wikipedia. I have a question to ask: where can I translate the name of the namespaces used in Wikipedia, i.e. "Help" and "Talk"? Recently we have a proposal to revise the translation but I cannot find where. Can you help? Please ping me when answering. Thanks!

15:45, 12 February 2018

At the moment please request translations on Phabricator.

Please enable Tunica for translation

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

Thanks.

23:23, 2 October 2016

Is more information needed? What can I do to make this happen?

16:19, 8 October 2016

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.

14:46, 12 October 2016

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.

16:39, 14 October 2016

What is the status on this request?

15:39, 8 November 2016

Bumping again. We're busy writing articles in the language on the Tunica incubator wiki. It would be nice to translate the Wikipedia messages that will need to go with it at the same time.

21:20, 21 November 2016
 
 
 
 

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.

12:37, 20 May 2017

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.

@Plandu: There may be a good news for you, that the SIL change request 2017-015 is adopted. That request is to change the type from Extinct to Living.

@Nike and Siebrand: Should we reconsider this thread because of this request?

Is it possible to merge two users?

Hi, For some reason I've got two user accounts on translatewiki.net, probably due to a misunderstanding concerning username and a display-name, or even the fact that my display-name contains a special UTF-8 letter.

I'm currently using Sveinn í Felli but my old login was Sveinki. It would be nice (and useful for avoiding misunderstandings) to have this latter account point to the former, or to merge them so that Sveinn í Felli becomes prevailing.

Is this possible?

09:29, 2 February 2018

Yes, this is on TWN, where we are not in the WMF instance, so we can try merging your two accounts.

09:43, 2 February 2018

Can you please do it?

Add support for Western Armenian (hyw)

Last edit: 22:55, 14 April 2017

As per langcom discussion on WMCON, the code hyw will be requested for w:Western_Armenian and we are sure it will be approved, but only at the earliest in December. But the users would already like to translate into it. Pinging user:Raymond.

13:39, 2 April 2017

The usual information is needed: Translatewiki.net languages.

13:47, 2 April 2017

Note that on Wikidata: d:User:Nikki/Permanent duplicates#Armenian, where "hy-arevela" used for Eastern and "hy-arevmda" for Western, because of https://www.iana.org/assignments/language-subtag-registry/language-subtag-registry :

14:06, 2 April 2017

Thank you, we are well aware of this subtag which was introduced as an expedient with the knowledge that a formal language code would be required.

23:38, 2 April 2017
 

All right,

  • A language code from ISO 639-3 or the Ethnologue website (for example 'de') - hyw [proposed]
  • The language name in English and in its own language (for example 'German – Deutsch (de)') - Western Armenian - արեւմտահայերէն
  • Is the language RTL or LTR (written from right to left or left to right) - LTR
  • 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. - Armn only
  • (For MediaWiki) Should the language fall back to another language other than English? If so which? - Fallback should be to hy.
23:36, 2 April 2017

Once the code has been approved, it can be added. For now, this request will be denied.

11:55, 20 May 2017

UPDATE: Amire has submitted https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/407155/, should we agree merging it or not?

Can I use bot here for correcting Javanese incorrect spelling?

I see many Javanese messages with inconsistency on the spelling. I find it is tiring and boring to correct them one by one. Can I use bot here for correcting Javanese incorrect spelling? I've listed some standard terms here.

10:03, 29 January 2018

Yes. You can. Open new account for bot and request bot flag.
