Is "additionalInformation" some API response field, or should this be "additional information"? The full stop should probably be outside of the italics.

Siebrand15:15, 27 December 2012

It's an API field; I quoted it and noted it in qqq.

And you're right about the period outside the italics (though I will be a good sport and admit that I didn't know as much, thought you were wrong, and had to look it up.)  ;)

Jrice (talk)22:49, 28 January 2013

FWIW, I checked the rest of the doc for italics and punctuation; they all follow the correct rule (that I could find with a simple regex).

Jrice (talk)22:49, 28 January 2013

Yay! Thanks for being thorough, Jeremy!

Siebrand23:23, 28 January 2013

I found " "(two spaces). It may be corrected " ".

아라다 알아 (talk)09:24, 8 January 2013

Agreed, fixed.

Jrice (talk)22:56, 28 January 2013

Please provide context.

Siebrand14:12, 4 January 2013

Added to qqq:

In this context, a 'Link' is actually a user-submitted link. Users can add web resources to EOL pages, and we call them 'Links'. So those links have ratings.

Jrice (talk)22:53, 28 January 2013

Need descriptions or keys for variables.

Siebrand15:44, 27 December 2012

Unused. Removed.

Jrice (talk)22:50, 28 January 2013

What's %{link}?

Siebrand15:06, 27 December 2012

This was a patchwork message. Fixed.

Jrice (talk)22:42, 28 January 2013

Should "taxonConceptID" be put in quotes to emphasize that it's some property?

Siebrand15:23, 27 December 2012

Okay, I've added quotes and noted that it shouldn't be translated in qqq.

Jrice (talk)22:38, 28 January 2013

Is "details" the name of the paramter? If so, please consider putting it in quotes.

Siebrand15:33, 27 December 2012

Okay, it's in quotes. I also added to qqq:

'details' is a parameter passed to the API; do not translate it.

Jrice (talk)22:34, 28 January 2013

What values do the parameters in this message have?

Siebrand15:35, 27 December 2012

Added to qqq:

'linka' will have the value of the 'dublin_core' translation, and 'linkb' will have the translation for 'eol_accepted_subjects'.

Jrice (talk)22:34, 28 January 2013

The currency code is USD, not US, at least if US is meant to be a currency code.

Siebrand21:26, 18 December 2012

Agreed, fixed. Thanks.

Jrice (talk)22:29, 28 January 2013

...Actually, I also removed the space before the colon and moved the abbr after the number (ie: "%{number} USD").

Jrice (talk)22:29, 28 January 2013

Please provide context. Is the Title Case wanted?

Siebrand23:02, 17 December 2012

This is a column header, seen only by admins. The contents of the column indicate which search result a user clicked on.

(added that to qqq.)

I think the title case here is okay, and this is for admins only, so I don't care enough to change it otherwise.  ;)

Jrice (talk)22:28, 28 January 2013

Patchwork message? Seems to start in the middle of a sentence.

Siebrand10:48, 24 December 2012

This entry was removed some time ago.

Jrice (talk)22:26, 28 January 2013

Typo: thehomepage -> the homepage

Siebrand10:47, 24 December 2012

Fixed, thanks.

Jrice (talk)22:25, 28 January 2013

Is %{users} like a comma separated list of user names? If so, this should probably support plural, based on the number of invitations that could not be sent.

Siebrand10:26, 24 December 2012

(Sorry for the long delay; I've been sick.)

Okay. I've removed this one and replaced it with unable_to_invite_users_to_community_with_count which has the count (and an explanation about the variable in qqq).

Jrice (talk)22:23, 28 January 2013

This page both errouneously displays the current English message text, and does not warn that English is the source language and improvements should be suggested at support.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)13:49, 27 December 2012


Siebrand14:24, 4 January 2013

Looks like a patchwork message. Something is missing at the end of the string.

Siebrand23:41, 23 December 2012

Indeed. ...But it turns out this view that used this translation was never called, so I removed it (and one other translation). ...thankfully. It was really awful.

Jrice (talk)14:28, 3 January 2013

Probably contains typ: URLS -> URLs. Besides that, this message is quite incomprehensible.

Siebrand11:38, 24 December 2012

This key was unused; removed.

Jrice (talk)14:25, 3 January 2013

Please provide context.

Siebrand11:37, 24 December 2012


"This is a column subheading, explaining the contents of the content in a table of search terms and the pages those terms should redirect to. In this case, the column contains the term users are expected to enter (other columns would then contain the pages we think they probably want from that term)."

Jrice (talk)14:21, 3 January 2013

Please document context. Also contains {...} which looks like a parameter, but probably isn't. Should this be (...)?

Siebrand11:36, 24 December 2012

That whole translation was completely lamesauce. :) Thanks.

Fixed, but renamed (to "see_all_activity_combinations"--we try not to use "click here" links, grrr); this key has been removed.

Jrice (talk)14:19, 3 January 2013

I found "." after "translations". It may be "?".

아라다 알아 (talk)01:52, 25 December 2012

Nice find. The second sentence reads as a slopy one, too.

Siebrand19:26, 25 December 2012

Fixed. I also reworded the "Delete actions cannot be undone" in its four incarnations.

Jrice (talk)14:12, 3 January 2013

I found "." after "translations". It may be "?".
