Translating offline

Hi Metalhead64. Welcome to!

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 anyway that I can add all the MediaWiki messages on this site that start with "Right-" and finish with "/en" to my watchlist? Because I want to keep an eye on them for whenever the FuzzyBot updates them. On Fandom or Miraheze I would just request a database dump. But I'm not sure if Translate has a database dump tool of any sort.

Also I noticed that a few of the Fandom messages in the Wikia namespace are outdated. Could I be bold and update them or do I have to start a discussion and get a consensus first?

P.S. Forgive me if I'm not supposed to edit your talk page. But the editor is being a pain and won't let me submit my message as a thread. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 01:49, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

Why I can't edit pages in MediaWiki namespace?

Dicto23456 (talk)08:47, 7 May 2015

On April 24, Nemo had revoked your translator rights.

\m/etalhead 10:28, 7 May 2015

Dicto23456, please address the concerns expressed on your talk page if you want your access restored.

Feedback request


I am working to add new features to Search Translations (link) and would like your feedback on the same. I have an idea of a new feature, called "text search with autosuggest" through which you can specify your search filters in the search box itself (apart from the UI), and also have autosuggest to show the possible values for the filter options. An example is this.

Please write a comment here about what you think of this feature. Also here you may read about the other improvements that are planned.

Thank you and I shall be waiting for your feedback.

Translations export

A thread, Thread:User talk:Metalhead64/Translations export, was moved from here to Support. This move was made by Metalhead64 (talk | contribs) on 21 March 2015 at 08:52.

Thank you for promoting me to translator group. I'm here specially to translate OpenStreetMap site. I'm "taking care" of JOSM translation (OpenStreetMap editor with a lot of messages to translate) in another site (Launchpad), but since OpenStreetMap needed some translations, I had to get here. It's not the first time I'm here. I had another translator account some time ago but I lost my password (username too, but that's easy to find since I made OpenStreetMap site translations) so I had to create another account. By the way, the first time I've been here I had to request for permission to be a translator, this time I was surprised by the new process to translate a few messages and wait for approval. Nice system! Thanks again!

Neue deutsche Übersetzer

Hallo Metalhead64!

Hier beklagst Du, dass es zu wenige deutsche Übersetzer gibt. Ich bin inzwischen zugelassen - ohne hohe Erwartungen schüren zu wollen, bin nämlich gerade viel dienstlich unterwegs in Nicaragua - aber ich will dazu beitragen, die Hürden für neue Aktive zu erleichtern, siehe unten fett gedrucktes.

Tatsächlich wurde ich von Dir dreimal abgelehnt und bin mir ziemlich sicher, dass das nicht so gedacht war. Falls Du das wirklich bewusst abgesendet hast: Vielleicht kannst Du mal nachsehen, was Dich dazu bewogen hat.

Generell müssen IMHO Antragsteller in einer Ablehnung erfahren, woran's lag. Man könnte eine ausschlaggebende Fehl-Übersetzung mit Musterlösung senden, optional Fehlerkategorien benennen, etc...

Der Prozess der Zulassung müsste klarer beschrieben sein. Ich zum Beispiel habe erst vier, dann zwölf, von Zweifeln geplagt, ob es mehr sein müssten 20 und schließlich nochmal 20 Übersetungen vorgenommen (die bekanntlich alle nicht verwendet werden). Ob die Anzahl übersprungener Elemente etwas ausmacht, weiß ich noch immer nicht.

Bitte sag mir, was Du von den Vorschlägen hältst und wo sie anzubringen wären (man empfahl mir Bugzilla... aber für sowas, weiß nicht...)

Kannst Du mir außerdem helfen, die Stelle zu finden, an der man eine Übersetzung der Ablehnungsemail ins Deutsche vornehmen kann?

Gruß -

Änderungen MantisBT

Hallo Metalhead64,

welchen Zweck hat die folgende einzelne Änderung in der deutschen MantisBT Übersetzung? -$s_copy_notes_from_parent = 'Kopiere Notizen'; +$s_copy_notes_from_parent = 'Notizen kopieren';

Mir kommt es so vor, als ob die Änderung von jemandem gemacht worden ist, der die Applikation nicht selbst nutzt. Liege ich damit richtig?

Grüße atrol

Atrol (talk)14:07, 14 November 2014

Du hast Recht. In Wirklichkeit habe ich keine Ahnung, in welchem Zusammenhang die Nachricht verwendet wird. Ich habe die Änderung nur im Zuge einer notwendigen Aktualisierung vorgenommen.

\m/etalhead 15:35, 14 November 2014

> ich habe die Änderung nur im Zuge einer notwendigen Aktualisierung vorgenommen.

Ich verstehe nicht was das bedeutet. Notwendige Aktualisierung von was?

Atrol (talk)15:43, 14 November 2014

Manchmal steht !!FUZZY!! in den Messages drin, die dann eventuell angepasst werden müssen. Oder hätte die alte Version gepasst?

\m/etalhead 15:50, 14 November 2014

Die alte Version war in Ordnung. Die neue Version ist zwar sprachlich besser (Substantiv zuerst), aber das müsste dann auch konsequent für weitere Meldungen einheitlich umgesetzt werden damit kein Mischmasch an der Stelle in der Benutzeroberfläche entsteht.

Number of revisions

Hi. How do you know the number of revisions you've made? The 1000 reviews in your user page seems statical. Do you know where the real number can be tracked?

Thank you.

Macofe (talk)03:44, 21 October 2014

You can see your editcount in the start page of your Preferences, section "Basic information".

\m/etalhead 08:10, 21 October 2014

That's the editcount. I was asking for the review count.

Macofe (talk)20:28, 21 October 2014

You must count your reviews in the log manually.

A {possibly} troll is ruining my works and efforts

Hey dude.

I'm new here. I registered almost a week ago and started translating FUDforum (I'm a member of FUDforum support forum as well), I found out FUDforum hasn't yet translated into Persian, So I decided to do it myself (I'm a translator). when I started, the project was somehow on ice for like 4 years! and exactly a little after I started doing it, some mysterious destroyer guy shows up and edits and edits for no rational reason. I was busy translating FUDforum messages, until a new user appeared out of nowhere and he has widely messed with all those Edits I'd done and still is editing all my translations & efforts in an unbelievably wrong way (I believe he's a troll).. I beg you, stop this troll, I can't continue working like this and being interfered by such trolls. unfortunately there's nothing I can do about it, people (of course by 'people' I mean trolls, cuz u know, normal people won't try to act that much lawlessly in such communities in where people, and coordinately the job they're doing is damn serious and definitely not like playing with a toy) can easily ruin everything u have done. unfortunately translatewiki has no clear rule as to prevent such trolls

Is it possible that I can have my own separated privacy while doing it? without any other trolls sabotaging my works?

the guy I'm talking about:

he just edits and edits without even asking, cuz it's what he does: ruin everything intentionally

I wonder if there is any policy which can stop these weird internet creatures ?seriously, how TW can Guarantee that my edits are protected from being ruined by trolls here

just let's have a look and find out:

Regards, Amin

I could block him. Can you tell me what he wrote on your talk page?

administrator translator

Kommentarlose Zurücksetzung

Warum ist diese Variante inakzeptabel? Ich kann verstehen das man fragwürdige Änderungen erstmal zurücksetzt da dies viele User beinflusst. Ich fände es aber gut wenn man dann eine Diskussion darüber mit dem jeweiligen Benutzer einleitet. Ich habe mir nähmlich durchaus Gedanken gemacht darüber. a) man kann nirgendwohin zurückkehren wo man noch nicht war und da man üblicheweise mit der Visualeditor Bearbeitung anfängt ist "wechseln" hier akkurater. Der Hinweis das es kein zurück gibt kommt zwar noch wenn man ansetzt zu wechseln aber ich denke das eine zusätzlicher Hinweis hier der richtige Ort ist. Ich sehe aber ein das man das nicht da haben möchte wenn es im Orginal nicht steht auch wenn es keinen Schaden anrichtet.

Saehrimnir (talk)14:11, 5 June 2014

In der Tat war ich mit dem Revertieren etwas voreilig. Ich habe angenommen, dass ein verlustfreier Wechsel zum VisualEditor doch möglich ist. Deshalb habe ich deinen Satz vorsichtshalber wieder eingebaut.

\m/etalhead 14:39, 5 June 2014

Danke. Und danke auch für deine unermüdliche Übersetzungsarbeit. Ich habe gerade dein Bemühungen vom letzten Jahr gesehen das Translatewiki in der deutschen Wikipedia bekannter zu machen. Ich finde das eine sehr gute Idee vielleicht kann man gemeinsam einen Kurier Artikel zaubern.

Saehrimnir (talk)14:49, 5 June 2014

Ich hatte schon einmal im Kurier versucht, neue erfahrene Übersetzer anzuwerben. Dies hatte damals allerdings keinen echten Mehrwert.

\m/etalhead 15:27, 5 June 2014


how can i become a translator? I want to translate some words to Romanian.
Please, create this page MediaWiki:Wikibase-rc-hide-wikidata-hide/ro with text ”Ascunde” (without quotes). This thing will replace word ”Hide” with ”Ascunde on Romanian wikipedia recent-changes page. Thank you. Also, at rowiki it's necesarry to translate words which appear in recent changes when a user was renamed, but i haven't found this item here yet)) Thank you.

Lezghian language

Hello I would like to get right to an interpreter in Lezgin. Thanks in advance

Namik (talk)22:12, 26 May 2014

I fear that's not possible.

\m/etalhead 08:38, 27 May 2014

Thank you for having responded. I want to say that I was removed because of a translator to translate into Lezgin language into Latin alphabet basis. I promise that I will translate based on Cyrillic. none besides me does not translate interface Lezgian section. I want to finish the translation. I promise that I will not use the Latin-based

Request for feedback on my GSoC'14 proposal

Hi Metalhead64,

I am planning to work on the project titled "Tools for mass migration of legacy translated wiki content" this summer under Google Summer of Code. I have drafted a proposal for the same over the past few weeks. This project is going to help the translation adminstrators like you in a great way, as it would completely automate the tedious manual task of preparing a page for translation and then importing the translations into the Translate extension. You can check the proposal page for detailed information on how I plan to accomplish this.

As you would be an end user of this tool, it would be great if you could go through the proposal and provide feedback/suggestions. Your feedback would definitely help me improve the proposal as well help in creating an even better tool. You can do the same on the discussion page of the proposal or reply here, whichever is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!

P.S: I need to submit the proposal to Google by March 19, 2014.
