Project logo

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


This page needs some major documentation updates as of July 2014 -- User:Brion will try to get it into shape shortly.

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

Other apps translated here:

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: $1, $2 etc.

However, functions such as {{PLURAL:}} are not currently available as they are in other parts of MediaWiki.

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

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.
