Propose additional column in monolingual English glossary for mediawiki

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Do we want to include all extension terms in the same page or make different pages for them?

Hm. I suppose the advantages of having separate glossaries for each extension would be:

  • It would be easier to create a separate wordlist for any future new extensions, rather than adding terms to an already long list of words.
  • The lists of terms to translate will be shorter and therefore less daunting for translators to tackle.

If we are going to use the word dump to build the lists, how are we going to separate the words into different lists for each extension?

The dump on /mediawiki only contains words from core, if you are talking about that.

I see. If that's the size of the dump from core messages, how big is the one from the extensions going to be? Ah well.

Would not all glossary infos have to end up in a searchable database format in the end?

Of course.
