[[Support/Documentation review]]

Jump to navigation Jump to search

In one of Wikimedia Sverige's (WMSE) projects we are looking at increasing the participation in, and use of, translatewiki.net. As part of that we are looking closer at the documentation available on translatewiki and how it can be improved.

As a first step we have now initiated a review of the existing documentation pages which is available at Support/Documentation review. Anyone wanting to work on this area of translatewiki is invited to take a look and participate in the process.

We have one review page too, http://etherpad.wikimedia.org/translate-doc

To give some context for above, we did that couple of years ago for Translate extension documentation. We moved that to mediawiki.org, expanded it and made it translatable. We did not ever get into doing a similar kind of exercise for translatewiki.net docs.

translatewiki.net docs were also examined in that pad. They were abruptly removed at some point, but saved versions contain the required info

Hi Lokal Profil, I updated the page. I pruned or merged some pages. I split the list in three. IMHO,

  • there is only about a dozen pages to focus on: they mostly already have all the needed content (the really necessary information is on mediawiki.org help), but they need to be connected better;
  • all the other pages are not worth working on for you, the goal is to ensure they are not in the way (a better separation of namespaces may help, as well as a review of incoming links).
