Extension

This is super neat! Any plans for turning it into a proper extension? Or at least enabling the gadget for all users? Tgr (talk) 17:02, 9 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Tgr: Thanks! It is already enabled by default for everyone here on TWN. No plans for making it into an extension at the moment, I don't have the time for that any time soon I think (as long as it works as it should here, that's the most important thing I think.)

In the Language team we are thinking of bringing glossary support, at least partially, to the Translate extension. No concrete plans yet. Nike (talk) 13:24, 12 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Categorization

Previously, we used this table for Hungarian. I think there is some value in being able to say which extension a given translation is for. Both because in very rare cases there might be conflicts (e.g. FlaggedRevs uses "editor" in a non-intuitive way) and because it helps with maintainability in general.

@Tgr: Yes, in my initial idea I wanted to be able to specify what "domain" a certain translation is valid for. But that would add a lot of complexity, not only in the gadget code, but also for end users in how they would enter/add terms. So I think it is better to annotate such things in "free-form", e.g. by noting in the usage notes field if a translation is only meant to be for a certain domain. Does that make sense? Jon Harald Søby (talk) 21:30, 9 July 2023 (UTC)Reply
It's certainly much simpler, so I can understand that choice. In some cases it would be nice to avoid showing bogus/irrelevant annotations. It's probably an uncommon problem though.
I guess it also depends on how much you expect the tool to be used - e.g. if people start using it for non-Wikimedia software, those definitely need separate dictionaries. Tgr (talk) 22:03, 9 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

Not working in action=edit?

IIRC, it used to work in action=edit, but now it no longer works. Diskdance (talk) 05:08, 29 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Diskdance: Do you have an example of a place where that should work but doesn't? Jon Harald Søby (talk) 13:25, 29 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Jon Harald Søby: For instance, in https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Wikimedia:Wikipedia-ios-aaald-single-reference-added-description/zh-hans&action=edit, the "Message definition" area should highlight "added" like the one in Special:Translate, but it doesn't.

I never made it work for those types of pages, but I could try to fix that. But it might take some time. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 13:40, 29 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Diskdance: I've added this now, please test. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 07:31, 30 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
It works. Thank you! Diskdance (talk) 10:57, 30 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
