Request to translate MediaWiki messages

I would like to ask you to correct MediaWiki messages:

  • Wikibase-mylanguagefallbackchain-verbatim-item – in most of the languages there is " - " (hyphen) instead of " – " (dash).
  • Mobile-frontend-languages-header-page – as above.

Thank you in advance. maro21 (talk) 21:00, 7 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@maro21: I'm not sure what you're asking. Do you want to change dash to hyphen in the English message, or change hyphen to dash in all other languages? Jon Harald Søby (talk) 12:16, 9 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
The hyphen is obviously incorrect between two spaces. maro21 (talk) 23:36, 21 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Request for Magic words review


Would it be possible for me to review the magic words for MediaWiki page names and links, in interlingue ?

MediaWiki:Discussiontools-preference-description/sr-ec & MediaWiki:Flow-talk-page-beta-feature-description/sr-ec

Please delete these two messages. I’m not able to properly translate them

Apparently this to MediaWiki:Discussiontools-preference-description/sr-el (fallback) Milićević (talk) 22:15, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I can delete it, but why not just translate it? Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 00:28, 8 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It's not worth of effort and message isn't that important. Milićević (talk) 18:02, 8 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
OK, I deleted it, although I'd say that translating the whole Discussiont Tools extension is among the most important tasks for good functioning of Wikipedia in any language. But it's up to you. Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 21:35, 8 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
My hope is that message will become simpler with time or someone else will do it :)

Hello, is it possible to create such a page? Or is there such a page. I couldn't find it. Regards, Turkmen (talk) 09:19, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Turkmen: Hi, I am not sure what you want to do. Can you explain a bit more? Jon Harald Søby (talk) 12:00, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Jon Harald Søby, for example, there is such a page. A note of permission is placed here purely for move. But I didn't come across the same regarding file upload. There is a general page about fileupload where it is written whether it is allowed or not. And this page is versatile, meaning it's not just about the file. I would like to make some notes locally if there was a page like this one just about the file. Turkmen (talk) 12:10, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Translate a bot on TranslateWiki

Hello. I would like to translate some phrases from my bot that I use for data entry on Wikidata, so that I can enter records in multiple languages rather than just a couple of languages that I know. These are strings such as {{year}} television series directed by {{director}}, {{year}} animated mini-series directed by {{director}}, webseries, animated film, television film, etc. Is it possible to open a project here on TranslateWiki for this purpose? --Wiccio (talk) 09:53, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

See Translating:New project. Your bot needs to be in a version control system like git, have an open source license and a supported file format. Nike (talk) 09:07, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Deletion request

If someone could please delete the translation at MediaWiki:Wikimedia-help-translate-prompt/se, I would appreciate it. The translation is not in Northern Sámi (se). Thanks! -Kimberli Mäkäräinen (WMNO) (talk) 08:11, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Also there may be more, since confusing Swedish (*.se) and Northern Saami (se) is quite common, but this is the only one I've run across so far. - Kimberli Mäkäräinen (WMNO) (talk) 08:38, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
