Colville-Okanagan Salish

I'm brand new to this and just started a test wiki over at Wikimedia Incubator and need to start translating the interface. My ISO 639-3 code is oka. The language name is 'Colville-Okanagan Salish – n̓səlxcin̓ (oka)̓ . The language is written LTR and uses it' own variation of the American Phonetic Alphabet.

Thesaltflats (talk)04:56, 8 August 2017

And do you want fallback languages?

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)13:43, 27 January 2018


Sorry it took such a long time. I only noticed it now.

This language is available for translation now. Start here:

I also suggest reading .

Again, sorry it took so long.

It is needed to use {{GENDER:$1}} in the Hebrew translation for this message. Does this message support it? It is not specified in the documentation, but the French translation uses it...

Guycn2 · 17:26, 2 April 2018

@Tgr: thoughts?

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)10:28, 4 April 2018

It is used via Status class:

Unfortunately Status really depends on the caller to call ->text() or ->parse(). I am not sure what is the caller/catcher of this Status :(

User:Nemo bis can you tell me how can I translate this ?

NehalDaveND (talk)06:59, 29 March 2016

Did you try using Special:SearchTranslations?

Nemo (talk)07:39, 29 March 2016

Yes ! but it not show.

NehalDaveND (talk)07:43, 29 March 2016

I don't know which language is that, but those are defined in jquery.ime in two places:

can you tell me who will change that word ?

NehalDaveND (talk)12:35, 29 March 2016

Looks like you need to send a patch yourself, by registering on GitHub and clicking the pencil icon at

Nemo (talk)16:33, 18 June 2016

If you didn't fix this yet: what is the new translation you want us to put?

Nemo (talk)15:56, 20 May 2017

Currently it's called as "लिप्यन्तरणम्" @NehalDaveND: is this still wrong, or it's correct now (i.e. matches "transliteration")?

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)13:55, 27 January 2018

"when available" -> "if available"?

A question about how to change language name

Hi. Would somebody teach me how to change language name from "한국어 (조선)" to "조선말"? I couldn't find it in CLDR and MessagesKo_kp.php of phabricator. Thanks.

Garam (talk)08:59, 10 March 2018

You may consider submitting a Phabricator task, we may find out that how this is possible in our codes.

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)11:13, 15 March 2018

@Liuxinyu970226: You say the "Phabricator task", do you mean here? Thanks.

Garam (talk)13:21, 20 March 2018

phab:T190324 was filled.

wording of MediaWiki:Mobile-frontend-nearby-info-description/en

I suggest to change the english text of this message from 'You can read about interesting Wikipedia articles about places around you' to 'You can read interesting Wikipedia articles about places around you'

Is FuzzyBot dead?

His last import was on friday.

\m/etalhead 09:02, 19 March 2018

Yes. An hhvm upgrade broke yaml support on Friday. I fixed it today by migrating to PHP7. That caused some instability this morning and some pieces might still be a bit broken. Please tell me if you notice something broken.

Request to create a new project


Wikimedia Research would like to map section titles across six languages (ar, en, es, fr, ja, ru) and we have everything set up for it. We're planning on sending an email to Wikipedia users who can help us with this mapping. Our email needs to be in these six languages and that's why we're requesting a new project here. Would it be possible for you to create a project for this purpose?


Bmansurov (WMF) (talk)01:19, 9 March 2018

Are you sure you couldn't do this with a translatable page on Meta?

We don't really "create" projects here, we just register l10n files from project's version control systems to this platform.

Nike (talk)11:18, 13 March 2018

Thanks for the reply, Nike. Meta makes sense.

Bmansurov (WMF) (talk)06:11, 15 March 2018

What about doing that as a Toolforge tool?

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)10:25, 18 March 2018

Liuxinyu, is there a specific tool for that or are you suggesting that we build one?

Bmansurov (WMF) (talk)03:16, 19 March 2018

Phabricator qqq pages are non-intuitive (IMHO)

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:

The action you have requested is limited to users in the group: Users.

You can view and copy the source of this page.


Return to Thread:Support/Phabricator qqq pages are non-intuitive (IMHO).

Having those autolinked to the source code is work-in-progress. I believe there isn't proper human written message documentation unless someone writes it.

Nike (talk)17:24, 2 March 2018

Problem is that we can't be expected to provide good translations with bad documentation. I know it is not an issue of you nor from itself; just feedback that this should be fixed where appropriate.

MarcoAurelio (talk)16:03, 17 March 2018

I'm sympathetic, but Phabricator developers have shown very little interest for a good i18n and what it entails (Nike was even forced to design an entirely new process to suit their non-standard methods and formats), so the alternative would be no i18n at all.

Our hope is that with this collaboration they will learn to appreciate i18n and adopt better practices. If it doesn't happen, at some point we'll need to reconsider...

Seeing the edit toolbar duplicated in LQT

Edited by author.
Last edit: 13:21, 21 February 2018

Hello. Does somebody else see their edit toolbars (to put text in bold or italics, etc.) duplicated when they interact with LQT? I do. Thanks.

PD.: it's the enhaced edit toolbar the one I'm using, if that helps.

MarcoAurelio (talk)12:49, 21 February 2018

Yes I do.

Nike (talk)13:21, 21 February 2018

Do we have Phab ticket already?

User notification should be disabled

Edited by author.
Last edit: 20:36, 16 March 2018

MediaWiki now also notifies users if their name is in the "summary" field.

Though, we really don't want to notify the previous author each time we revert a vandalism…

Therefore, the message MediaWiki:Revertpage/en should be updated from:

Reverted edits by [[Special:Contributions/$2|$2]] ([[User talk:$2|talk]]) to last revision by [[User:$1|$1]]


Reverted edits by [[Special:Contributions/$2|$2]] ([[User talk:$2|talk]]) to last revision by [[:User:$1|$1]]
Od1n (talk)15:38, 16 March 2018

This is currently discussed on Phabricator:

Od1n (talk)16:45, 16 March 2018

Regardless of the fixing in Echo, I feel we could add the colon there as well for the future. But that's for a Phabricator ticket as well if people agree.

MarcoAurelio (talk)16:00, 17 March 2018

Please repair this. There is a typing error (bettter instead of better). Thanks.

Extant date-stamp errors in ZU (MediaWiki)

The contributor who translated the months March and April into isiZulu (ZU) for MediaWiki in November 2012 switched the two, and hasn't been active since. Nor are there any other translators active in ZU. Yesterday I joined up here and made those two corrections - but with no one to review them, through what process will the changes be accepted and activated? I didn't find the answer in the FAQs. Meanwhile all ZUWP activity this month is being dated for April. What happens next?

Change logo on Wikipedia

I updated the logo on nds-nl.wikipedia about a month ago, but the logo has not changed since I updated it on File:Wiki.png like it used to, does anyone know if something has changed, or does it just take longer to become visible? (I know this has nothing to do with translating the interface, but didn't know where else to post this question.)

Servien (talk)19:53, 12 March 2018

The Wikimedia Foundation took this power away from wiki administrators an year or so ago, so you have to go through the m:Requesting wiki configuration changes process.

If you changed the translation, remember to update m:User:Cbrown1023/Logos.

Nemo (talk)20:05, 12 March 2018

hi all, just to report a tipo: 'BMP cahracter' should be 'BMP character' Thanks.

Who can block this user, it's confirmed as the sockpuppet of User:Assoc, still translating Phabricator via machine translation and without any polish.

Anyway, this user is making confusion between @Wong128hk: and him.

I agree this user should get blocked.

Can someone check User:Acamicamacaraca. I think he is sock puppet. If he is, I recommend to block Ip Acamicamacaraca from creating new accouts.

Why: Him comment on previous section is really weird.

Приложение (talk)16:16, 25 February 2018

A new sock puppet of User:Mouse21. Can anyone check that and block that IP from creating account.

I agree this user should get blocked.

Change Wikimedia Mobile Apps message group name to Wikimedia Mobile.


There is message group called "Wikimedia Mobile Apps" although the Translation page was moved to "Wikimedia Mobile" name. So the name of the message group need to change from Wikimedia Mobile Apps to Wikimedia Mobile.
