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

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


Translation flow

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.

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

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

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.
