Not this alone :-( I looked through the file and see some hundred "translations" into English. Any chance for an automated comparison and deletion process?

So I really quickly hacked a script together:

var notTranslations = {};
Object.keys( maybeTranslations ).forEach(
    function ( key ) {
        if ( maybeTranslations[ key ] === englishVersions[ key ] ) {
            notTranslations[ key ] = maybeTranslations[ key ];

and then retrieved the list of messages in notTranslations. I got a list of 520 different messages that exactly matched the English version - I couldn't find a way to collapse the list if I were to paste it here, so I dumped it on my sandbox on metawiki - format is message name and then the text - see

@Raymond: have you had a chance to review the list above?

Hi DannyS712, to be honest: I saw your list, thanks a lot, and closed it again due to the mass... I had no time to manually remove/delete all of them in November. I will think about a faster solution.

I wrote a script to do this. I ran it for mediawiki aggregate group for now:

php scripts/deleteEqualTranslations.php --group=mediawiki --language=hif-latn --comment="Cleaning up translations which are equal to the definition"

Done. I think this is now resolved sufficiently well.
