Translators may add <tt>WikimediaMobile</tt> to their babel box or include [[Template:User WikimediaMobile|<nowiki>{{User WikimediaMobile}}</nowiki>]] to add themselves to [[:Category:WikimediaMobile translators]].
The app is built using HTML5/JavaScript plus PhoneGap and customizations for tighter OS integration. It currently supports Android and iOS. Windows Mobile and other platforms will be supported from the same code base as much as possible.

Wikimedia Mobile consists of Android, iOS and KaiOS apps that are used for reading and editing Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects.

Translators may add WikimediaMobile to their babel box or include {{User WikimediaMobile}} to add themselves to Category:WikimediaMobile translators.


Translation flow

  • Android Wikipedia app:
    1. updates available in source within 1 week: see the sub folder of wikipedia/res/values-*.
    2. updates should be available in release of Wikipedia Beta Android app in Play Store within 1-2 weeks
    3. updates should be available in release of Wikipedia Android app in Play Store for the following release
  • iOS Wikipedia app:
    1. updates available in source within 1 week. see updates in our source code repository
    2. beta updates are available to testers every 2 weeks.
    3. The final product is available in the iOS App Store.
  • Android Commons app:
    1. updates available in source immediately: see the sub folder of commons/res/values-*.
    2. updates should be available in release of Commons in Play Store for the following release, once per week on average.
  • KaiOS Wikipedia app
    1. updates available in source regularly in the i18n folder

Translating notes

MediaWiki and Wikipedia jargon may appear; see Translating:MediaWiki#Translation notes for more general references.

The application uses the same localization framework as MediaWiki's JavaScript-based code. Message parameter format is the same as MediaWiki for iOS: $1, $2 etc. Android uses more complicated Message formats based on Java's Formatter. Most of the time we just use %s (for single strings). Sometimes we use multi-parameter messages. In those cases we need to specify the position: %1$s for the first string parameter, %2$s for the second string parameter.

Some UI terminology may need to stay consistent with other translations on particular platforms; for details see /Terms

The Android app store description can be translated on the page mw:Wikimedia Apps/Team/Wikipedia Android app store description.

Templates

The {{PLURAL:}} template is supported, but should be used only if the base translation contains a {{PLURAL:}}.

The {{GENDER:}} template is not currently supported, and should not be used in either iOS or Android translations.

The {{GRAMMAR:}} template is also not supported, and should not be used in either iOS or Android translations.

Translating offline

If you're more comfortable using an offline editor, set the correct user language and export translations to a .po file.

Note that .po files exported from translatewiki contain extra information to support round-tripping correctly. They cannot be used elsewhere. Submit them back through translatewiki.net for merging and normalization. You need the "offline" user right; be sure to request it, or you will not be able to use the submit interface.

If using POedit, be sure to use version 1.4 or later -- earlier versions will corrupt the .po files.
