What does "issues" mean in this context?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)20:01, 17 May 2015

Hello! "Issues" refers to articles that use the multiple issues template. For example, board games. I don't think this template has been localized for Ripoarisch yet.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)19:18, 13 July 2015

Server is application server. The circumstances are irrelevant for translation as far as I can see.

What is "Zero Devmode"?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)01:04, 27 May 2015

The development mode for Wikipedia Zero.

Siebrand08:47, 28 May 2015
 

Should support PLURAL.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)00:38, 27 May 2015

Message text and message documentation contradict one another.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)20:02, 15 May 2015

How should I deal with translations requiring different forms based on the number? In Czech, the word following a numeral takes one form after 2-4 and another after 5 and above.

Mirek2 (talk)10:09, 29 August 2014

Currently we don't support plural forms in iOS -- but there is a mechanism and we hope to add support for it soon. For now, use whatever horrible generic fixed form you would use when the appropriate value can't be selected. (Generally this label won't get used on phones set to Czech, so double-check if the meters form has the same problem...)

brion (talk)20:00, 16 September 2014

For meters, most languages just use 'm' to abbreviate it. It appears in a list of multiple values, so the abbreviation is encouraged. Not sure if an equivalent abbreviation exists for feet. But as brion mentioned, not a lot of Czech users probably would switch from metric to imperial units.

Next what?

  • Next page?; or
  • Next time?; or
  • Next section of existing page?; or others?
Liuxinyu970226 (talk)07:44, 8 March 2015

OK I've housekept, title already hinted me.

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)07:45, 8 March 2015

Sorry, the title of the string is unfortunately a bit misleading. But the qqq is good. https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Wikimedia:Wikipedia-android-strings-read_next_section/qqq This is a special section the mobile apps add at the end to offer suggested articles to read next.

Can we use the Arabic logo for Wikipedia?

Bsitzmann (talk)17:10, 3 April 2015

I still don't understand this question... how would we know? :) Do you mean the wordmark? If the logo, where is it set?

Nemo (talk)14:27, 14 May 2015
 

Yes, you can use the Arabic logo/wordmark for Wikipedia here. (Like it was done for the English version you can add some basic HTML tags to make the first and last character bigger, but that probably doesn't pertain to the Arabic wordmark.)

Bsitzmann (talk)19:27, 14 May 2015

This is meant to be the same as the first line of text on https://ar.wikipedia.org/static/images/project-logos/arwiki.png

Wording is too sloppy.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)23:10, 26 April 2015

I didn't come up with the string but I think it's meant to be playful.

Bsitzmann (talk)02:52, 18 June 2015
 

"UNable" → "Unable"

Btw. Wanting to quickly fix this myself I tried to find out where in the source code the typo is, in vain. Is there an easy way to determine this - other than guessing from various circumstances?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)13:48, 26 April 2015
Nemo (talk)13:55, 26 April 2015

That does not lead me to a command downloading the source from git/gerrit. :-( Thus I am still unable to fix it.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)05:46, 1 May 2015

If you want to add a patch for the iOS app clone this repo from Gerrit: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/admin/projects/apps/ios/wikipedia

Bsitzmann (talk)02:49, 18 June 2015
 
 
 

What is meant: "a page" or "pages in general"?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)09:53, 25 April 2015

What does "illegal" meant? Not allowed because it's the name of an account that is banned? Not allowed because it's got an invalid character? Not allowed because it contains a naughty word?

Jdforrester (talk)00:10, 19 July 2014

Or because of the blacklist of that wiki? Maybe child pornography, drug advertisement or terrorism?

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)08:59, 10 November 2014

No such per-crime blacklists exist.

Nemo (talk)10:28, 13 November 2014

It refers to illegal characters used inside the user name.

Could you give us some more contexts or screenshot of this message?

Takot (talk)14:19, 20 September 2014

Sorry, I just noticed this (very late). I'm not familiar with the Commons app and we don't maintain it anymore. So, I cannot give any guidance for it. I believe since then translation for this app have been disabled anyways.

Bsitzmann (talk)22:06, 5 May 2015
 

Could you provide some more contexts with this string?

Takot (talk)01:18, 22 December 2014

LNDDYL has taken a related screenshot in zh-hant:

see here

However it's still unclear the usage...

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)14:52, 25 December 2014

Thanks for uploading zh-hant version. I now realized how it is used in Japanese. Given that, I changed the translation such as "Basic Data" something like that.

Takot (talk)14:15, 18 February 2015
 
 

@Wikipedia seems the Twitter account of Wikipedia. If so, will this string come right beginning of tweets? I tried translating this as:

@Wikipedia の記事「$1」

But if it comes at the beginning of a tweet, the tweet should be displayed only to followers of @Wikipedia. To avoid this, I'd better including a trick like:

.@Wikipedia の記事「$1」
Takot (talk)14:23, 14 February 2015

But that would be customisation, rather than translation, so it's forbidden (see Localisation guidelines). YOu make a good point, though: can you please report the issue so that it's addressed for everyone?

Nemo (talk)22:07, 14 February 2015

Thanks Nemo for following up. Now it's on a Phabricator's task.

Takot (talk)16:39, 15 February 2015
 
 

Needs more context...

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)09:00, 13 December 2014

Requesting context

Nike (talk)10:13, 20 June 2014

This message was added by YuviPanda in Change-Id: Ia95255309eee5fdab2040f4dc9aba76e0f9715e2 on 29 January 2014, and it was originally used in the file wikipedia/res/layout/activity_edit_section.xml, but it was removed by Dmitry Brant in Change-Id: Ieabd035fec22c80886e17871e83794e7576b8222, committed on 8 July 2014. So as far as I'm able to tell, this string was left in the app's strings.xml file by accident and isn't actually used anywhere and should be removed.

It would remain as page(s) or some PLURAL is possible?

Basetalkcontributions08:01, 20 June 2014

Please avoid PLURAL syntax for the app for now. The user can select one or more save pages to be deleted. If necessary, you could treat it as "Saved pages deleted". This is for a toast that will disappear automatically after a few seconds.

Bsitzmann (talk)21:12, 29 December 2014
 

I need your suggestion, please. I thought that, If this source word "translators" was for a label's title, it may be needed to start by capital letter. Several words which follows -iOS-about are in the same line. This can' t be a matter on Japanese version, but I would like to know how you identify those cases to reflect later work.

SkyDaisy9 (talk)12:07, 5 November 2014

I've updated the message documentation. Thank for asking this question.
