Copy source and translation to new title

Jump to navigation Jump to search

What's the best way to copy a source page and its translations to a new title? Not moving but copying. Example: you want to copy m:Stewards/elections 2011-2/Guidelines (suppose it was translated with the extension) to m:Stewards/elections 2012/Guidelines and then adapt it. Compare the CentralNotice extension feature to "Create a copy of the banner" (clone it). Thanks.

There is no such functionality in the extension at the moment.

What happens if one disables translation on the first (source) page, moves all subpages in the namespace for string translation to the new title, enables translation on the new page?

A mess? At least you would no longer have translations for the first page.

A mess, yes, but does the extension explode? :-) I guess I should try.

Yes, it is. Although I'm still not fully convinced of the use case. Having a translation memory would probably be more valuable.

Do you mean a translation memory you can use automatically? If not, it's not really the same use case. Another thing would be to be able to recycle string messages in multiple pages.
