Translatewiki.net: better support for your language in MediaWiki

Dear community. I am writing to you to promote a special wiki called [[betawiki:|translatewiki.net]]. This wiki facilitates the localisation (l10n) of the MediaWiki interface. You may have changed many messages here to use your language in the interface, but if you would log in to for example the Japanese language Wiktionary, you would not be able to use the interface as well translated as here. In fact, of 1,736 messages in the core of MediaWiki, XXXX messages have been translated. Translatewiki.net also supports the translation of messages for 126 extensions, with 2,174 messages. Translators for over 90 languages contribute their work to MediaWiki this way every month.

If you wish to contribute to better support of your language in MediaWiki, as well as for many MediaWiki extensions, please visit translatewiki.net, create an account and request translator privileges. You can see the current status of localisation of your language on MediaWiki.org and do not forget to get in touch with others that may already be working on your language on translatewiki.net.

If you have any further questions, please let me know on my talk page on translatewiki.net. We will try and assist you as much as possible, for example by importing all messages from a local wiki for you to start with, if you so desire.

You can also find us on the Freenode IRC network in the channel #mediawiki-i18n where we would be happy to help you get started.

Thank you very much for your attention and I do hope to see some of you on [[betawiki:|translatewiki.net]] soon! Cheers! Siebrand from translatewiki.net
