I have drafted a new help page, Translatewiki.net languages, for review and improvement. I am hoping that this page would form part of the translatewiki.net help and documentation, if it is good enough. It is mainly a collection of things already on FAQ and other places drawn together into one page. What do you think?
Nice! Did you plan this to be linked from Special:SupportedLanguages?
Two-letter codes are preferred over three-letter codes, if both exist and are equivalent.
I thought that maybe this page could be linked from:
- Project:About - in the last point of the 'Overview of translatewiki.net method', possibly linking at the text 'new language' or changing the existing link at 'fallback language'. I'm not sure what is best given that the page is already set up for translation.
There is nothing special in translatable pages, except changing them generates work for translators :)
Yes, I agree, it is best not to change pages already set up for translation. That is why I thought that it might be possible to change the existing link at 'fallback language', without changing the text. Would it be possible to change the link using a bot, so that there is no extra work for translators?
If neither of my suggestions are very satisfactory, it doesn't matter; I'm sure we'll find a good place for this page eventually.
I have tried the page in Firefox 13.0.1 and Firefox 14.0.1 for all 4 skins and in internet explorer also. The messages supportedlanguages-summary and supportedlanguages-colorlegend always appear, but the supportedlanguages-localsummary appears in the English interface only (tested for cy and sw).
