Integration with IMSLP
Hi! I just discovered your project and I asked on IMSLP if they would be interested in a collaboration with TranslateWiki. Feldmahler replied that "Unfortunately I do not think IMSLP has enough programming staff to implement a full interface with TranslateWiki." (see full answer here). I'm not a developer, so I cannot offer help, have you guys helped some other project to provide support to your platform? IMSLP would be a great addition! :) --Micru 13:09, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
It is a standard MediaWiki extension, right? Why doesn't it use the standard way to do i18n?
Since I don't know the answer I forwarded your questions to Feldmahler. I'm sure he can provide you with better information than me. I'll repost here his answer asap.
You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:
The action you have requested is limited to users in the group: Users.
You can view and copy the source of this page.
I don't think he understands how the MW extension i18n process works. The first step would be to thoroughly explain how it works.
Is there any documentation or webpage describing the i18n process?
So you wrote: "Hi Siebrand! Many thanks for your link. I've been reading the info, however I don't think all the concerns are addressed there. The main one was to "support user translations out of the box", that is, to use the current translations until everything has been migrated to TranslateWiki... I think there is a lot of "Copy and paste" work to do there... but I might be wrong... Have you ever done a migration like that before? My php skills are almost zero, but if you could take care of the technical part, I could surely take care of the line-by-line migration. What do you think? Are you up to it?" (please do not create a new thread on my talk page).
Our standard reply is: If it's a MediaWiki extension that users the standard MediaWiki internationalisation, and if it is in http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/extensions/ we will support it. Otherwise, we will most likely not be able to support it.
