Changing Japanese namespace names of MediaWiki

Fragment of a discussion from Support
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Aliases will be taken care of by the committer (me), so just change it. On Wikimedia it may take months, but committing namespace is something I can do this weekend.

Thanks for you reply. How about noticing? How/where need we notice?

Probably the projects that use the Japanese language setting. Also you should check where the namespace names are used hardcoded in your wiki, for example changing {{#ifeq:{{NAMESPACE}}|ノート|...}} to {{#ifeq:{{NAMESPACE}}|{{ns:Talk}}|...}} or {{#ifeq:{{NAMESPACE}}|{{ns:1}}|...}}, which will make the function work with both namespace names.

Changes have been committed in mwr:66490. Strangely enough the Japanese updates are not in there. Niklas, could this be a caching issue?

Siebrand19:37, 15 May 2010

I see they had not been yet. I've committed them in mwr:66497. catrope will update namespaces, special page aliases and magic words in a few hours on Wikimedia wikis.

Thank you!

catrope didn't manage to get around to it today. He said he'd do it Monday.

We're changing "ノート" to "トーク" in all MediaWiki translation now, and completed MediaWiki core and Extentions used by Wikimedia .

But on page tab label, "ノート" is still in use. How (What message) should we change?

aokomoriuta17:33, 17 May 2010

Just review all MediaWiki core translations and look them up. That's probably the most elaborate way, as I expect there is more than one occurrence. Btw, the changes have been deployed as far as I know.

You should check all messages containing namespace names as text. Messages like Nstab-category ("Category") and the ones for other namespaces.

Siebrand18:32, 17 May 2010

Now no message contains "ノート" in MediaWiki core, except Exif-makernote ("Manufacturer notes").

But "ノート" is still used on page tab label (c.f. [1]). Why?

See FAQ, item 1.

Siebrand19:56, 17 May 2010

Thanks, it's corrected!
