Where to indicate language-specific conventions or preferences?

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Hi Carrieseltzer,

Currently the project page is the best place to list down such notes / rules for translators. In addition, we recommend that whenever you notice conventions not being followed, please leave a link to these notes on the talk page for the translator.

Probably a lot of people start translating iNaturalist after going through the web-page here, so we also recommend updating that to leave a link to the notes / rules.

I've added a new feature request here. You can add any further inputs that you have there.

Hi Abijeet,

Thank you for that suggestion. When you say the project page, do you mean https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Translating:INaturalist? What is the main way that people navigate to this page?

I'll work with cgalindo to articulate the preferences for es-mx on both the project page and our own wiki.

Thank you also for adding the feature request. I think that will ultimately be better.

Hello Carrieseltzer,

Yes, that's what I meant from the project page.

Translators can navigate to this page by clicking on the Need more help? Ask for more information link displayed in the documentation section when translation a message.

On this page, you can then add a header that links to an FAQ page.
