Query translation memory?

Once in a while, the translation memory does not yield anything, or not the right messages, even though it obviously could. Most often, a minor spelling change of the original would likely do, such as omission or addition of punctuation, grammatical alterations, or substitution of a synonym. I wonder if we cannot have an extra search field in the message editor that is preset with the message in question and allows us to make these kind of amendments and hit "search again"?

ElasticSearch is currently overloaded, so I wouldn't take today's behaviour as representative. Most of the issues are tracked at phabricator:T48484.

As for adding more interface elements, we know that TUX maintainers are firmly opposed...

Well, I shall see, if I can find a decent solution for this. It would not be used often, at least not by me on twn, but rather on Meta wiki.

Instead of simply removing localized texts, why not make this page a normal translateable page? After all, there are only a few keystroke that need translation.

Sperfluous. No additional info. Delete?

Can we have GENDER support here?

Needs PLURAL support

Waiting forever, no result.

Adding to talk pages and the support page often yields endless waits.

Please add details on your operating system, browser and version.

Windows 8, Mozilla or Opera, patch level is between most recent and (at most and rarely) 10 days old.

I am convinced, the problem I experience with all this AJAX an JavaScript stuff are due to poor handling of internet connection and transmission errors or occasional timeouts.

Monobook: Red bars overlap images in message boxes

Screenshot

In monobook skin, the red bars to the left of the navigation elements overlap the image inside the message box, see attached screen shot.

By the way, why are these red bars there in the fist place? I find them annoying and superfluous screen clutter.

How to determine the primary message group of a message?

Given a message key, how do we determine its primary message group key so as to be able to regard and inspect the context of the message and use existing translations so as to clarify potentially ambiguos or otherwise uncertain wordings?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)06:48, 15 May 2015

Usually I open the edit mode and check the link next to "Message definition".
