Breton and Welsh in the Kernowek language, help

Hi, for some reason, the Kernowek language on Wikipedia's various interfaces has become flooded with rogue translations into Welsh and Breton. Most Cornish speakers do not speak and cannot understand Welsh or Breton! How can this be fixed, please? Thank you.

Could you give 2 or 3 examples please? I do not speak one of these 3 languages so it is very hard for me to find examples.

Maybe it is a result of more translations for Welsh and Breton in the last time. Since ages these languages are fallback languages to Kernowek in case of missing translations, see https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/plugins/gitiles/mediawiki/core/+/master/languages/messages/MessagesKw.php#18

This could be fixed with removing the fallback chain.

Thank you for the screenshots. I checked a few of the marked translations and can confirm, that these are shown due to the language fallback chain.

I opened https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T256097 to allow a wider discussion and preparation of a patch.

No problem, I sent a patch to remove it.

They were already configured as fallback for Cornish on translatewiki, and I was just cleaning up configuration by moving some common things from translatewiki configuration to core configuration. I removed it from both now. It will take a few days until it's fully deployed on the Cornish Wikipedia.
