Right now i tried to change a few things but the changes are not shown in pa.wiki.

When did you edit Special:AdvancedTranslate? Any changes to Special:AdvancedTranslate have to be reviewed by a developer before being exported, which can take a few weeks. After the changes are exported to Mediawiki, it also takes a while before the Wikimedia wiki software is updated.

Have the changes made been discussed at pa wikipedia? (See this discussion.

But when i opened it for the first time then it had the correct spellings but not on pa.wiki. I tried changing it today and saw no effect. Now i changed it back to what it was. We had the discussion about the correct spellings months ago.

You appear to have edited the pa namespace page directly - [1]. That will have no effect - you must edit using the Special:AdvancedTranslate tool. Please read the FAQ as noted above.

I see that Siebrand has posted a message about the namespace names for pa on the portal talk page. Please respond to his post there to get this resolved.

A link to the discussion on pa wikipedia will help.

For future reference I would recommend that you put some notes and links to discussions on namespace names, magic words, special page aliases, plural, grammar, etc on the pa portal, or a sub-page of the portal. Future translators will then also have access to the translation methods and history for Punjabi. Some other languages have got sub-pages of translation notes on their portals.
