Propose additional column in monolingual English glossary for mediawiki609:40, 20 June 2011

Computerese

I suggest to move the terms

  • template
  • checkbox, tickbox
  • to check, select, tick, mark (a checkbox)
  • to uncheck, deselect, unticked, unmark (a checkbox)

elsewhere. They are general computerese, not MediaWiki specific. --Purodha Blissenbach 19:52, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Hmm I agree for all except template. It has specific meaning in mediawiki.

Nike20:50, 15 June 2011

Yep, 'template' needs to be in both glossaries. As I understood this definition, it appeared relativly general to me.

Purodha Blissenbach20:54, 15 June 2011

I support above proposals.

Lloffiwr22:15, 16 June 2011

I moved the general computer terms to a new page for a general computer terminology.

Do we want to include all extension terms in the same page or make different pages for them?

Nike11:11, 17 June 2011

Hm. I suppose the advantages of having separate glossaries for each extension would be:

  • It would be easier to create a separate wordlist for any future new extensions, rather than adding terms to an already long list of words.
  • The lists of terms to translate will be shorter and therefore less daunting for translators to tackle.

If we are going to use the word dump to build the lists, how are we going to separate the words into different lists for each extension?

Lloffiwr12:14, 17 June 2011

The dump on /mediawiki only contains words from core, if you are talking about that.

Nike14:10, 17 June 2011

I see. If that's the size of the dump from core messages, how big is the one from the extensions going to be? Ah well.

Would not all glossary infos have to end up in a searchable database format in the end?

Purodha Blissenbach04:55, 20 June 2011

Of course.
