Hi, the following three messages do not seem to be ok:

  1. Mwe-upwiz-error-too-long
  2. Mwe-upwiz-error-too-short
  3. Mwe-upwiz-error-bad-chars

They relate to fields as being to short, to long, etc. Shouldn't it be entries being to short, to long, etc. ?

I don't understand the comment.

  • "too" is the correct word in English to imply an excess of something, not "to".
  • It talks about fields because the interface uses standard form fields. The data from these are later used to create wikitext entries.
NeilK20:53, 25 June 2010

Hi NeilK, usually an editor is not able to change the length of a field in a form, but the length of the entry put into a field. In contrast this message is asking to do the opposite: If the entry is too (thanks!) long for the field, please change the length of the field. To me this sounds very strange and this is why I posted my question. Cheers --kgh 22:31, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

I apologize for not following up with you. I was not aware that you had sent additional messages. Maybe I don't have the right settings to get email from this.

The error message is trying to say that "the value you have typed contains too many characters", or "the value you have typed contains too few characters".

In English, we usually say "long" or "short" and the meaning is understood. There seems to be some confusion here between length as in centimeters or inches, and length in the sense of number of characters. Is that what was bothering you?

Should I rename these messages to something like "over-maximum-chars" / "under-minimum-chars" ?

NeilK17:55, 9 August 2010

No problem. I should have left a message on your talk page earlier.

However, your answer confirmed to me that I have localised correctly. Shouldn't the messages say "This entry is too long/short" instead of "This field is too long/short" or "This entry contains symbols that are not allowed." instead of "This field contains symbols that are not allowed." My question never related to short or long. I am sorry that I may have phrased my question incorrectly.

Cheers

How about this?

       'mwe-upwiz-error-blank' => 'This field is required.',
       'mwe-upwiz-error-too-long' => 'Please make this shorter than $1 {{PLURAL:$1|character|characters}}.',
       'mwe-upwiz-error-too-short' => 'Please make this longer than $1 {{PLURAL:$1|character|characters}}.',
       'mwe-upwiz-error-bad-chars' => 'This entry contains symbols that are not allowed. Please do not use wikitext or HTML here.',
