Obsuser and his translations

Bump. He is like an "energy vampire" who works only on his own and consumes the energy of us who are trying to contribute.

He persistently wants to translate literally, on incomprehensible way.

And, my god, without consulting with someone else.

I only see one recent thread on their talk page. Was it about this topic?

Partially. But neither the first nor the last, for sure.

Hi Nike, I would like to know the status of this request. His behavior has not changed, plus he got a global lock on all WMF projects (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:CentralAuth/Obsuser).

The most recent example of his circus is the nonsense machine translation: https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=MediaWiki:Currentrev-asof/sr-ec&diff=9929591&oldid=9929372

He translates literally, unnaturally and unreasonably.

And in our case, it is necessary to translate so that the translation is in the spirit of the language into which it is translated, as well as that the translation coincides as much as possible with the original.
