Hi Metalhead64. Welcome to translatewiki.net!

You can now start translating.

You should also check the portal for your language, the link is in the sidebar. Other useful pages are linked in the menu next to this message.

Your translations are transferred to the standard product every few days or every few weeks depending on the product. Please notice that it may take longer before you see your translation in the actual product.

It can be just a few days before they appear on Wikipedia, but a few months can pass between each new release of FreeCol.

We wish you a productive and pleasant stay. Please leave any questions on Support. Cheers!

Two tips for localisation

  • please do not use parser functions. Not every installation has them (reverted one instance)
  • please stick to the English source message, and do not invent additional text (reverted 2 instances). If you think a source message should be changed, please open a new topic on Support.

Cheers! Siebrand 10:07, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Is there any sensitive information in this revision? If so, I can suppress this revision.

\m/etalhead 12:44, 6 April 2020

Done. :-)

Hi! Thanks for giving me normal translator rights, and sorry for being late on posting this message (i should have thanked you earlier). However, i personally feel that i need a bit of assistance: On the wikimedia incubator, i have created the Ghotuo test wikipedia; However, i cannot find the Ghotuo language in translatewiki to translate the inner templates, could you assist me in finding a solution? Thanks again!

GhotuoIncubator (talk)21:21, 22 December 2019

Bassicaly, i just found the way to request a new localization here, but i still feel unsafe.

GhotuoIncubator (talk)21:46, 22 December 2019

With Wikimedia Incubator, I cannot help you. Sorry.

\m/etalhead 11:27, 23 December 2019

I meant to enable the Ghotuo language for localization here, where I think I found the way of requesting that on the Support page (posted yesterday-still no replies).

GhotuoIncubator (talk)18:29, 23 December 2019

I'm not responsible for enabling new languages here.

\m/etalhead 19:36, 23 December 2019

Sorry, I didn't knew that. A last question: Do you now someone who is responsible for enabling languages?

Wrong "machine" translations

Hi, I saw that you're solving such cases and I would like to ask how to proceed with them. In the Bulgarian translations we are having a bunch of translations 3000+ done by an contributor that does not have any knowledge of Bulgarian and translated most of them with "Machine" or based on similar translations in Bulgarian or other Slavic languages. I'm working on fixing this for some time, but there are translations from the "MediaWiki:Apihelp-****" category, that require deeper knowlege, which I don't have in some cases. Is there an easy way to remove the current translation, so the system to use the English one? Maybe to mark them somehow with template for deletion? Reporting every single one will take time and I don't think I can invest days in fixing other contributors mess.

StanProg (talk)11:17, 4 June 2019

It is possible to automatically delete all pages created by the user.

\m/etalhead 12:38, 4 June 2019

I found the {{delete}} template. Is it ok to replace the content of the specific pages/messages with this tempalte, passing as first parameter an explanation why this message should be deleted? --StanProg (talk) 12:43, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

StanProg (talk)12:43, 5 June 2019

No, don't use the template because it will be exported as-is.

I have a script that can fuzzy all translations by a given user.

Deletion of translations is very time consuming process, especially if they span across multiple repositories.

Nike (talk)12:55, 5 June 2019

The problem is that I have alrady reviewed and fixed a lot of those translations and if they are all marked as fuzzy, I will have to review them again. What I need is a simple way to remove the wrong translations that I can't fix at the moment. They are API related translations and are pretty much useless for developers and will just confuse them, if they are even used. If this is not possible, I will ignore them for now and will try to find a solution later.
