Adding new links on MediaWiki:Contribsub2

Hello. Can somebody guide me on how to insert new links on MediaWiki:Contribsub2? One example is: phab:T117366. Thanks.

Cannot correct original page -> in in

You need to log in in order to create a quiz!

in in is obviously wrong

I cannot correct because the original page is blocked for updating

MediaWiki:Quizgame-login-text/

Christian (talk)07:53, 22 January 2017

Actually, it's correct. wiktionary:log in, wiktionary:in order. Would you like to add a comma?

Nemo (talk)07:58, 22 January 2017

ok you are right; it is better to see "login" than "log in in" .

TimedMediaHandler - missing groups

MwEmbedModules/TimedText messages are not supported by translatewiki! They are not in groups and not updated. (don't know whether rest submodules of MwEmbedModules works)

Woytecr (talk)13:53, 2 January 2017

The group is missing some message documentation in its qqq files. The message documenation needs to be fixed/added first.

Der Umherirrende (talk)19:05, 16 January 2017

There are other messages and message groups that are translateable here, but still lack documentation.

Without repo access you should be able to add documentation via translatewiki too once the message group is re-enabled here. E.g. it was done here recently.

Request 4 languages of Indigenous Taiwanese

Edited by another user.
Last edit: 10:09, 4 July 2016

Hello, I'm Reke, secretary of Wikimedia Taiwan. We have a project cooperate with National Cheng-Chi University (NCCU), to incubate some Wikipedia for languages of Indigenous Taiwanese. The page on incubator says that we need to localize into our language.

Indigenous Taiwanese have 16 peoples, 15 languages. Not every people have enough users to incubate their own Wikipedia. After discussing with Professor Huang Chi-ping, the project manager of NCCU, she says there are 4 languages we can localize first, because volunteers in these languages are more than the others.

They areː

  • Atayal - isoːtay
  • Amis - isoːami
  • Saisiyat - isoːxsy
  • Taroko - isoːtrv

Please help us. Thank you.

So I created 4 portals for em (assume they are all using Latin script as per their test wikis, and a 3-letter yap: LTR), but could you please provide autonyms, and how about fallback?

Thanks for reply.

  1. Yes you are right, all these 4 languages are using Latin script.
  2. But sorry, I can't understand what you ask me to do. What does "autonyms" mean?
Reke (talk)05:17, 6 July 2016
 

Hello, could you elaborate on what are autonums and fallback? It will be great if you can tell us the Chinese translation of autonums and fallback. Thank you.

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)12:06, 6 July 2016

Got it.

Their autonums are all same as English name, as the beginning post. Only one word need to revise. "SaiSiyat", the fourth letter should be capital.

And zh-hant as fallback is better than en, I think.

Reke (talk)13:04, 6 July 2016

Sorry for my typo: autonym

  1. Language code: ais;
  2. Language names: Sakizaya – Sakizaya;
  3. Directionality: LTR;
  4. Script: Latin;
  5. Fallback: ais -> zh-hant -> en.
  1. Language code: ami;
  2. Language names: Amis – Pangcah;
  3. Directionality: LTR;
  4. Script: Latin;
  5. Fallback: ami -> zh-hant -> en.
  1. Language code: tay;
  2. Language names: Atayal – Tayal;
  3. Directionality: LTR;
  4. Script: Latin;
  5. Fallback: tay -> zh-hant -> en.
  1. Language code: trv;
  2. Language names: Seediq – Taroko;
  3. Directionality: LTR;
  4. Script: Latin;
  5. Fallback: trv -> zh-hant -> en.
  1. Language code: xsy;
  2. Language names: Saisiyat – SaiSiyat;
  3. Directionality: LTR;
  4. Script: Latin;
  5. Fallback: xsy -> zh-hant -> en.

Please clarify if something is wrong above.

Something got wrong in Template:Doc-group

Why I can see

This message contains the page name of the page with more information about this group. Please leave {{ns:project}} untranslated. The page title is generally equal to the group name ({{msg-mw|group-{Template:1). {{#ifeq:Template|MediaWiki|{{#ifeq:MediaWiki:{{ucfirst:grouppage-{Template:1/qqq|Template:Doc-group|| |member=
...
{{#ifeq:Template|MediaWiki|{{#ifeq:MediaWiki:{{ucfirst:group-{Template:1.js/qqq|Template:Doc-group|| |css=
...
{{#ifeq:Template|MediaWiki|{{#ifeq:MediaWiki:{{ucfirst:group-{Template:1.css/qqq|Template:Doc-group|| |group |=
...
Form should be plural. {{#ifeq:Template|MediaWiki|{{#ifeq:MediaWiki:{{ucfirst:group-{Template:1/qqq|Template:Doc-group|| |#default=

What means Template:1?

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)09:12, 1 January 2017

What is 'Nb'? Documentation please.

Also check:

What should we do about them? Those are not English words.

Macofe (talk)02:48, 19 February 2016

I'm not very sure about the context of these abbreviation like words, but I think, translations of something like "MgrEffortEstim" should use CamelCase IMHO.

MediaWiki:Globalusage/en should be split in two messages

This message is used in two places: as a section heading on a file description page (for example, see this) and as a page title in Special:GlobalUsage. In English, the text "Global file usage" is suitable for both places, but this does not happen in other languages, like in Portuguese. Each of the two Portuguese variants have chosen a version that is good for only one of those cases. The European Portuguese version (MediaWiki:Globalusage/pt) has "Utilização global de um ficheiro", which means "Global usage of a file", and is suitable only for the special page. The Brazilian Portuguese version (MediaWiki:Globalusage/pt-br) has "Uso global do arquivo", which means "Global usage of this file", and is suitable only for the section on the description page.

It would be good if there were two distinct messages: one for the heading on the file description page and one for the special page title.

Orange as a colour or a plant?

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)08:23, 9 January 2016

This goes along with the other colors assigned for visual descriptors of species. It does not refer to the orange plant or its fruit.

Got it, thx.

Central zazaki dialects translating code

A thread, Thread:Support/Central zazaki dialects translating code, was moved from here to Portal talk:Diq. This move was made by Nemo bis (talk | contribs) on 19 December 2016 at 17:03.

It suggests that you can edit (or delete) layers, but really the corresponding button in VisualEditor's map dialog currently allows editing all geometric features present and there are no layers to edit. A layer in sense of managing geometric features is usually a group of features.

Pikne11:16, 19 December 2016

Please change "this namespaces" to "these namespaces".

Dgstranz (talk)00:44, 19 December 2016

The message says "Enable internal query rewriting. Some search backends can rewrite the query into one its thinks gives better results, such as correcting spelling errors."

Please change "its thinks" to "they think". If the subject were singular, it should be written "it's" in any case, but it's "some search backends", which is plural.
