Mass copy translations
Hello. On the ProofreadPage extension I submitted a change to create 5 new system messages, named "MediaWiki:Proofreadpage qualityX summary" where X = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. The meaning of these new messages is similar to the old "MediaWiki:Proofreadpage qualityX category" messages, so most sites will want to reuse the same message, however some languages need a separate message so they can provide a better translation.
Before we release that change, is it possibile to mass-copy the old "category" messages into the new "summary" messages? And, can the new messages be marked as being "in need of review", so that translators will notice them and change them if needed?
Thank you very much.
If the new messages have a different meaning, we don't generally move the old translations. You can copy the existing translations directly in the code. Traditionally people add "!FUZZY!" at the beginning of the text to indicate that the translations should be reviewed.
