Activate new language: Nanai [gld]

Hello. The Nanai Wikipedia project has been initiated in Incubator (code: gld). I'd like to start translating the interface into Nanai language. It looks like I work alone, but I am not a speaker, I ask speakers, they are old and often cannot use Wiki IT. I'd like to say, we are group, but it's not visible. Nanai language uses Cyrillic script. Please help activate it. Thanks.

[Wp/pwn]Translation of MediaWiki (most important messages)

Paiwan Wikipedia (incubator:Wp/pwn) is open test wiki of the Wikimedia Incubator. It also have valid ISO 639 language code. Due to approval of Wikipedia, translation of MediaWiki interface into its own language in the translatewiki.net is one of the requirements before a wiki can be created. But now translatewiki.net do not have such selection of translating to Paiwan language. We would like to know what steps are necessary to get the selection.

Hi! The name of this language will be written in is also called "Paiwan"

Mecytan (talk)13:38, 29 January 2021

Is this name used in any other texts in this language?

I can see "Pinayuanan" in this book: https://www.sanmin.com.tw/product/index/002628849

Ethnologue also says "Pinayuanan": https://www.ethnologue.com/language/pwn

The Raleigh Ferrell dictionary says "pinaywanan a kai", which is very similar to "Pinayuanan" (and "kai" is language).

Perhaps it should be "Pinayuanan"? This name is supposed to be written in Paiwan, and not in English.

MediaWiki:Visualeditor-autosave-modified-prompt-message/en

I'd suggest that the word 'revision' is used instead of 'version' in MediaWiki:Visualeditor-autosave-modified-prompt-message/en. This is the established term in MediaWiki page history.

Delete MediaWiki:Dberr-info/hif-latn

Please delete MediaWiki:Dberr-info/hif-latn, its just a copy of the English version of the message. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 02:24, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

DannyS712 (talk)02:24, 24 October 2020

Not this alone :-( I looked through the file and see some hundred "translations" into English. Any chance for an automated comparison and deletion process?

Raymond15:21, 25 October 2020

So I really quickly hacked a script together:

var notTranslations = {};
Object.keys( maybeTranslations ).forEach(
    function ( key ) {
        if ( maybeTranslations[ key ] === englishVersions[ key ] ) {
            notTranslations[ key ] = maybeTranslations[ key ];
        }
    }
);

and then retrieved the list of messages in notTranslations. I got a list of 520 different messages that exactly matched the English version - I couldn't find a way to collapse the list if I were to paste it here, so I dumped it on my sandbox on metawiki - format is message name and then the text - see https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:DannyS712/sandbox&oldid=20632414

DannyS712 (talk)08:07, 9 November 2020
 

@Raymond: have you had a chance to review the list above?

DannyS712 (talk)08:42, 14 December 2020

Hi DannyS712, to be honest: I saw your list, thanks a lot, and closed it again due to the mass... I had no time to manually remove/delete all of them in November. I will think about a faster solution.

Raymond13:42, 24 December 2020
 

I wrote a script to do this. I ran it for mediawiki aggregate group for now:

php scripts/deleteEqualTranslations.php --group=mediawiki --language=hif-latn --comment="Cleaning up translations which are equal to the definition"
Found 678 message(s) created by these users:

Done. I think this is now resolved sufficiently well.

Nike (talk)13:45, 4 January 2021

I ran my hacked script again, and this time I found no translations that were the same as the English, so I agree

Thank you Amir. I plan to write from Nigeria.

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)14:00, 15 January 2021

Yes. I meant the Nigerian (Alada) variant which uses ⟨ẹ⟩ and ⟨ọ⟩. It is transborder. Thanks.

Samatics (talk)16:13, 15 January 2021

Hi, I'm Mahuton from Benin Republic. I can speak and write Gungbe too. Gungbe is spoken in Hogbonou, a border region with Nigeria. I think we can moveon with the nigerian variant.

Thanks

Mahuton (talk)12:40, 16 January 2021
 

In the book Current Research in African Linguistics: Papers in Honor of Oladele Awobuluyi I found that the Nigerian variant was used only for a Bible translation in Nigeria, and that the Benin variant is used in schools, and that the proposals for unification are based on the Benin variant, not the Nigerian one.

Can you give some examples of where are the different variants used, and of how the Nigerian variant is used in Benin? Is it used in books, newspapers, websites, or schools?

Publishing the translation failed

There are two untraslalted messages of MediaWiki core messages due to this erro messageː "Publishing the translation failed: You do not have permission to edit this page because it contains raw HTML which can be modified to affect all visitors." They are listed below along with the translationsː

1 The english original message is (MediaWiki:Feedback-terms/lmo) "I understand that my user agent information includes information about my exact browser and operating system version and will be shared publicly alongside my feedback. The message traslated into lombard language is ː "Hoo capid che i me informazzion sora el me agent d'utent contegnen di informazzion sora el me programa de navigazzion che vegnarann condivise publicament insema ai me coment." 2 The english original message is (MediaWiki:Feedback-termsofuse/lmo) "I agree to provide feedback in accordance with the Terms of Use."

Reloading without cache in Opera

The message https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=MediaWiki:Clearyourcache/en says:

"Note: After saving, you may have to bypass your browser's cache to see the changes.

  • Firefox / Safari: Hold Shift while clicking Reload, or press either Ctrl-F5 or Ctrl-R (⌘-R on a Mac)
  • Google Chrome: Press Ctrl-Shift-R (⌘-Shift-R on a Mac)
  • Internet Explorer / Edge: Hold Ctrl while clicking Refresh, or press Ctrl-F5
  • Opera: Go to Menu → Settings (Opera → Preferences on a Mac) and then to Privacy & security → Clear browsing data → Cached images and files."

But the last one is way too complicated, and it does something quite different from the first three: It clears the entire cache for all websites, which seems completely unnecessary. Why not just say "Press Ctrl+F5"? That's what Opera themselves say: "Ctrl+F5 - Reload page without cache, which is useful if something isn’t loading correctly on the page." (https://www.opera.com/case-studies/working-faster-with-keyboard-shortcuts-in-opera).

I cannot change it myself, and the page https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=MediaWiki:Clearyourcache/en told me to suggest the change here instead.

Standard date format in MediaWiki

In a MediaWiki installation you can select the preferred date format in Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-rendering. Where is the standard value (called "No preference") set? – Is there a translatable string which determines the standard for a given language?

Dipsacus fullonum (talk)16:45, 9 January 2021

Hi Dipsacus fullonum, the standard for Danish is defined in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/plugins/gitiles/mediawiki/core/+/refs/heads/master/languages/messages/MessagesDa.php#126

That means for any change a patch is needed. There are no translatable strings available.

iOS plural syntax off for N'Ko

The plural syntax for these translations broke our import script. I'm hoping my updates will fix them (see history):

How to apply to add my open source project translations?

Happy new year.

The open source license is GPL-3.0

The translation files are here: https://github.com/InPageEdit/Translation

The format of the translation files are key-value JSON

机智的小鱼君 (talk)22:14, 2 January 2021

Hello 机智的小鱼君,

Happy new year.

Would it be possible for you to create a task on Phabricator by following this link? Phab task link

Secondly, I see that there is a single file that has the source and translations - https://github.com/InPageEdit/InPageEdit/blob/master/i18n/languages.json. Can we break these up into different files?

  • en.json
  • fr.json

etc

I would also add a qqq.json file, that will have message documentation.

Regards,

Abijeet Patro (talk)14:16, 4 January 2021

Thanks for reply!

I'll create the task on phabricator.

Btw, the languages.json file will be discarded. I realized that it is stupid to put strings of all languages in single file. So I'll using https://github.com/InPageEdit/Translation/blob/main/core in the next versions.

机智的小鱼君 (talk)15:59, 4 January 2021

Alright, let me know if you need any help.
