What's "diet" here? Needs documentation.

delete identical MediaWiki:Skinname-blueprint/de translated message please

Edited by another user.
Last edit: 08:45, 29 September 2015

Someone added MediaWiki:Skinname-blueprint/de translation to the Blueprint skin, but it's identical to English. Later that message key was marked optional in qqq.json, and I think that's why the skin's CI tests are now failing (sample): the banana-checker reports the error "The translation of "skinname-blueprint" is a duplicate of the primary message."

I understand a future version of banana-checker will relax this requirement, but the translation is redundant and I could use a fix now. Thanks!

NS_USER/NS_USER_TALK, possible from translate from here?

IIRC in the past Special:Magic/AdvancedTranslate allowed this to be translated. How it is done now, via gerrit patch directly? Thanks.

MarcoAurelio (talk)14:40, 28 September 2015

For now, in Gerrit. Would you like to help restoring Special:AdvancedTranslate?

Nike (talk)14:46, 28 September 2015

Hi Nike. Thanks. What help do you need to restore the tool? I'm not a programmer. Best regards.

MarcoAurelio (talk)14:50, 28 September 2015

Should I translate "page, subcat or file"?

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)08:00, 28 September 2015

Documentation needed. Rejected on what? Time? Date? Reason? :-) 'a ship in the morning'?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)12:12, 26 September 2015

This project? A project? Any project? Projects in general?

If your language does not need the PLURAL function at all, then explain this on the Support page. You may be able to get the check software to ignore missing PLURALs in your language.

(same for GENDER, from FAQ)

Korean does not need PLURAL/GENDER in the language (Singular and plural all have same following words, no per-gender words). So is it possible to ignore nonexisting PLURAL & GENDER instead of a workaround? (Or if it is not possible then please remove this line?)

Reporting error in translation and other language suggestion

Jeg vil gerne rapportere en fejl. Når jeg bruger oversættelsesprogrammet, det ikke viser danske forslag, hvis jeg åbner listen via MediaWiki (most important message). Men hvis jeg åbner programmet via MediaWiki, eller MediaWiki extensions/skins osv., så danske forslag vises.

Jyllanj (talk)12:25, 22 September 2015

Like this? Screenshot Sep 11.png

Nemo (talk)12:50, 22 September 2015

Yes. The error seems to come back sometimes and go off just like that too. Refreshing the page does not always seem to work.

Then let's continue here. Please show me where your source code is located.

Why double "a" (or being staged for "a a" taxon change.)?

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)04:56, 19 September 2015

Documentation needed. A past currency in Latvia? Latitude (like iNaturalist:Lat/ja)? Latin language? Or others?

What if I want to translate system messages from Gamepedia wikifamily? Some system messages not exist at Translate Wiki. Can I add this messages to Translate Wiki, or I need to add this as New Project? Or maybe best way is translate system message locally, for example I already translated System Messages at Terraria Wiki into Russian. But this messages displayed only in Russian Terraria Wiki. What if I want see translated messages in another wikis, for example in Minecraft Wiki. What I need to do?

Alex Great talk07:42, 21 August 2015

Thanks for asking! I'd love supporting gamepedia wikis more. Some of these messages belong to MediaWiki core, hence just by translating at Special:Translate/core you will see your translations reach all Gamepedia wikis when they update.

Gamepedia is on 1.23, which was released one year ago: at this speed, you'd need to wait about one year for your translations to reach all wikis. However, you can ask the system administrators to install and run mw:Extension:LocalisationUpdate: as soon as they do that, all the translations you make here will spread to all the Gamepedia wikis. Translations you make on your own wiki are trapped there and can't be easily exported.

Additionally, I see Gamepedia has several custom extensions; I don't know whether you translated some of those too. To translate them efficiently, you should ask the Gamepedia developers to host their code in

Nemo (talk)08:12, 21 August 2015

Thanks for answer.

Alex Great talk08:45, 21 August 2015

I will be speaking with our development team here at Gamepedia to see if we can move our repositories to MediaWiki's Gerrit system. Currently all the maintained extensions are hosted on GitHub.

Alexia (talk)19:59, 17 September 2015

Is it mean that in future all system messages can be translated this, at Translate Wiki, and this messages can be work with all websites of Gamepedia?

Alex Great talk09:02, 18 September 2015

This message documentation is absolutely cryptic. Please make it useful.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)18:12, 17 September 2015

If I remember correctly, this form was introduced during the last steps of SUL finalization on Wikimedia wikis, to help users whose account had to be renamed before it could be SULified. But all accounts are now global, so "Unification rename request" is confusing. Could it be changed to something like "User account rename request"? Or "Global user account rename request", if the clarification is useful for non-Wikimedia wikis?

Orlodrim (talk)19:04, 9 September 2015
