Translating talk:Waymarked Trails


What's the difference between Wmt-6c17f09eb2ea1f380eab8f9dc31b8e660fa4c9ce-sleigh ("sleigh") and Wmt-51b2a2310a67a445b2c4544abb789c76adee2d91-sled ("sled")? According to Wikipedia and various dictionaries they are synonyms.

OSM defines two different piste types for sleds: sleigh is for self-propelled sleds and sled for everything else. For more information see

What happened to the localisation updates on Github?

It has been about two months since last localisation update of Waymarked Trails on Github, but I see that user:Siebrand has been updating other projects, and new translations have been provided on Translatewiki by its users. What's up?

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)08:38, 23 May 2013

Help pages for Waymarked Trails now ready for inclusion on Translatewiki

The template for helppage translations is now ready for inclusion on Translatewiki, as mentioned on the issue on Github. The template is in django/locale/qot/helppages.yaml and translations should go to django/locale/<LANG>/helppages.yaml

We haven't moved existing translations yet, and think it might as well be done manually on translatewiki because of tedious formatting etc. (the originals aren't in markdown). I've updated the documentation, and when you have it up and running on Translatewiki, I'll move the nn and nb translations at least.

Interface translations and help page translations should be separate. Based on a message count of 38, where many are quite short, I think the inclusion threshold should be 40%.

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)13:38, 30 June 2012

We have now manually added nn and nb translations, might add de too.

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)20:12, 12 July 2012

I wrote the configs for this. On quick testing I noticed some messages will appear to contain harmless extra newline at the end, which seems to be a bug in our yaml parser. Siebrand noted that some messages are still longer than we would prefer, but I think it's acceptable.

Nike (talk)11:44, 23 August 2012

Ok, sweet. We still haven't ported the Spanish translation, but I'll get it done and leave a message here. Is the extra newline the "trailing whitespace" you've mentioned before?

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)14:21, 23 August 2012

The Spanish translation has now been ported and we're waiting for Nike to implement on There are two other issues you could resolve by pulling this commit.

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)08:51, 24 August 2012

Is everything working fine for you?

Nike (talk)08:45, 2 October 2012

It think it is all fine and dandy, thank you :)

New messages that should be optional

I believe the recent update invalidated the one optional message we have, and that it should be replaced with Osm:Wmt-d39fbf478176b9ed008faf0cf0bfe88a778c7e9c-s_km and Osm:Wmt-978afcb7a6f02efbc6cf00a0668afa0913891cd3-s_m as there are only very few languages where these will need any tweaking (I don't understand why Siebrand has translated to nl), and the risk of the translator skrewing up the message is greater than the potential benefit.

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)15:02, 9 August 2012

Could you omit updating languages where there are no changes?

When updating on Github, would it be possible to not touch language files where there are no changes to messages? They don't really hurt but without them it would make it easier to review the changes, and statistics and history would be cleaner. In this update f.ex. only 2 of 34 changed files had any real changes.

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)13:49, 30 June 2012

This is a question that applies to all projects, I don't think needed moving here.

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)15:32, 30 June 2012

We have --hours switch for our export script export.php. It is currently not in use. Siebrand: if you are exporting on regular intervals, you could add this switch to the script.

Nike (talk)13:05, 2 July 2012

I added this switch to this and some other projects.

Nike (talk)07:40, 19 July 2012

Please remove wmt-fa116350fe099a35d005bb65056d959688ba4b03-WWW from optional tags

The content of wmt-fa116350fe099a35d005bb65056d959688ba4b03-WWW has now been replaced with "Website". Please remove it from the optional tags in configuration.

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)14:43, 27 June 2012

Done Done

Siebrand19:29, 27 June 2012

It should be "JavaScript".

Siebrand14:43, 14 April 2012

Thanks, I've added it to the issue tracker on Github. Is it possible to get notifications about support messages concerning Waymarked Trails?

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)08:39, 17 April 2012

Because of a nasty bug in the threading system we use, there are no notifications when a thread is moved. You should probably watch this page (Translating_talk:OpenStreetMap) every week or so, and see if there are any new issues related to your product.

Siebrand08:53, 17 April 2012

But shouldn't this rather have been moved to Translating_talk:Waymarked_Trails?

Guttorm Flatabø (talk)09:11, 17 April 2012

Yup, moved there :)

Nike (talk)19:30, 17 April 2012

Yes. Didn't know that exists, though. The one who supports this project, should probably have added it to the main page, too.

Siebrand18:04, 18 April 2012

It's been bit slow process, but it will happen.
