Message name contains space. It's creates problem with using referring it with msg type of templates. Will be good idea to check other EOL messages for same problem.

EugeneZelenko13:50, 8 June 2011

This should be fixed, though I'm not sure the fix was pulled yet; we're aware of the problem (it was in several places for the most recent update), and will avoid it in the future.

Jrice17:55, 17 June 2011

Has been updated.

Siebrand21:54, 18 June 2011
 
 

Typo: it's -> its

Siebrand21:52, 18 June 2011

Argh. :)

Thanks, fixed; will be available for the next sync (there were actually quite a few of these it's/its problems).

Jrice17:49, 20 June 2011

Thanks for fixing!

The message website-item was added to your recently collected items ("Item was added to your Recently Collected items") has some strange capitalizations. Shall we keep them in translations? --Purodha Blissenbach

03:35, 11 July 2011

Decide whatever you like, but I suggest you keep it at least consistent in your own language. "Recently Collected" is a concept in Encyclopedia of Life.

Siebrand13:35, 2 August 2011
 

typo: "to have problem" → "to have a problem"

[[kgh]]20:31, 8 September 2011

Thanks. (This also needed a comma.)

Jrice15:10, 9 September 2011

Lucky me. + EOL getting better by the edit :)

[[kgh]]15:12, 9 September 2011
 
 

'Never ever' or 'never been'?

Anakmalaysia07:01, 25 August 2011

I mean, can you illustrate where is this Never used? Please attend ASAP.

Anakmalaysia03:34, 5 September 2011

This is in regards to the frequency at which the user will receive email. Thus, this case, it means "never, ever".

Jrice14:14, 9 September 2011

Thanks. Documented.

Siebrand14:58, 9 September 2011

I should mention that I evaluate every question asked here and add an explanation to the qqq.yml file, if I feel clarification is actually warranted (as in this case).

Jrice15:02, 9 September 2011

Ah. I'm doing the same thing here (and those should end up in the "qqq" file too. You can do it too: EOL:Website-never/qqq.

Siebrand15:10, 9 September 2011
 
 
 
 
 

Should this 'all' be translated or left as it is? It looks kinda like a command.

Anakmalaysia13:10, 3 September 2011

The "all" should NOT be translated, it is a command used by the API.

Jrice15:01, 9 September 2011

Thanks. Documented.

Siebrand15:09, 9 September 2011
 
 

typo: any classifications → any of the classifications Cheers

[[kgh]]22:14, 3 September 2011

That's not a typo, that's valid grammar, but for clarification, I will make the change.

Jrice15:05, 9 September 2011

Not necessarily needed, but of course if you agree. Sometimes non-native speakers just need a grammar update. No biggie :).

Siebrand15:08, 9 September 2011
 

Oops, I must already have been asleep. However, I am sure that the change would add something. Cheers

[[kgh]]15:08, 9 September 2011
 
 

Hmm ... clade. This does not seem to fit? What is conveyed with this message? Cheers

[[kgh]]21:16, 6 September 2011

This key is no longer required. Removed.

Jrice15:06, 9 September 2011

We like more clean files. Thanks.

Website-errors.messages.too short ("is too short (minimum is %{count} characters)")

Should support plural.

Siebrand13:39, 28 August 2011

Done. It's supremely annoying that I have to submit this form twice because the forum wants me to do math _the second time_. If it needs it, it would be time-saving to just ask the first time around.

Jrice14:58, 9 September 2011

I'll give you some rights that will no longer require you to wait until you are what MediaWiki calls "autoconfirmed".

Siebrand14:59, 9 September 2011

Done Done And thanks :).

Siebrand15:01, 9 September 2011

Supremely helpful. Thank you.

Jrice15:06, 9 September 2011
 
 
 
 

Website-errors.messages.too long ("is too long (maximum is %{count} characters)")

Should support plural.

Siebrand13:38, 28 August 2011

Done.

Jrice14:57, 9 September 2011

Thank you!

Siebrand15:01, 9 September 2011
 
 

Website-errors.messages.wrong length ("is the wrong length (should be %{count} characters)")

Should support plural.

Siebrand13:40, 28 August 2011

Done.

Jrice14:57, 9 September 2011

Thanks.

Siebrand14:59, 9 September 2011
 
 

Which strings do %{linka} and %{linkb} refer to?

Anakmalaysia07:36, 20 August 2011

I believe this key has been removed.

Jrice12:56, 25 August 2011
 

Does this mean twice every month or every two months?

Siebrand17:13, 21 August 2011

Twice a month.

Jrice12:50, 25 August 2011
 

Is this an infinitive or imperative verb phrase?

Anakmalaysia04:07, 19 August 2011

This key will be removed in the next version. Sorry.

Jrice12:51, 25 August 2011
 
A thread, Thread:Support/About MediaWiki:Moodbar-privacy/en (2), was moved from here to Translating talk:MediaWiki. This move was made by Lloffiwr (talk | contribs) on 8 September 2011 at 21:39.

Can anyone explain to me what "wants" in this context means?

Anakmalaysia07:19, 20 August 2011

Heh. Its sounds bad, doesn't it?

This is a column header indicating the level of curation ability that a user wants ('full' and 'master' are the possible values in the table. This does not need to be incredibly clear--it is only seen by admins. Please keep it as short as possible.

(I've added this information to the translation files. Thanks.)

Jrice12:55, 25 August 2011
 

Can someone explain what this is about, and give me an example of how this string would be produced on the site?

Anakmalaysia08:24, 20 August 2011

These keys have all changed (there is a family of them), but I shall add descriptions to the translation files.

Where "rank" is one of the variables, they resolve in formats similar to this: "Species recognized by Integrated Taxonomic Information System:" or "Integrated Taxonomic Information System as a Taxon". In the latter case, this entry would be seen as a paragraph under a header named "Recognized by". These can get more complex, as occasionally the values are created with Rails' #to_sentence method. Thus, you can end up with "The Integrated Taxonomic Information System and T Orrell (custodian) in Catalogue of Life as a Taxon", where the "and" was inserted between two values for the "recognized_by" variable. These do not need to read with prefect grammar, as they are meant to be citations and not flowing speech.

Hope that helps.

Jrice13:11, 25 August 2011
 

Typo: "visibile" should be "visible".

Same typo in EOL:Website-activity_user_showed_unknown_object/en

McDutchie23:58, 15 August 2011

This will be fixed with the next pull (probably next week). Thanks.

Jrice13:13, 25 August 2011

Last edit: 09:11, 6 September 2011

I don't understand if this means a single person that records something or a company (like record company).

GoEThe15:43, 5 September 2011

'Recorder' in this case is meant to be a person or company which …created a recording of a sound... such as someone who made a field recording of, say, a wolf howl.

Jrice15:09, 9 September 2011
 

What is PLURAL rules for EOL?

EugeneZelenko14:16, 7 July 2011

They are the same as for OpenStreetMap and Shapado (Ruby i18n).
