View messages that contain the same text

"Click on the link "show" to view messages that contain the same text as this message"

This link takes you to a different language field and I have been caught out a few times while editing. Would a warning that the language field has changed be helpful? --Natsubee 13:45, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
What do you mean, "different language field"? Nothing wrong happens when I press the link. Jon Harald Søby 19:07, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
I was editing in Ewe, clicked on the link to see similar phrases, started editing and realised that I was editing the originals in English (en) instead of Ewe (ee). I had to undo my edits and start all over again. I am not sure whether I have been able to make myself clear. --Natsubee 19:10, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
I understand what you mean, but I can not find the problem myself. Can you give me a link to a page where the template links to an English message? Jon Harald Søby 21:18, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Those links lead to identical messages in the language you have set in your preferences. It is probably a good idea to change your language settings to the language you are translating. /Lejonel 22:06, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks Lejonel, your suggestion solved the problem.--Natsubee 13:47, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
