Betawi configuration


Thank you for your translations into Betawi!

Your language is now mostly ready for being used as a user interface language, but it requires a big more configuration.

First, what is the fallback language? That is, if a message is not translated into Betawi, should it be shown in Indonesian, Malaysian, Javanese, English, or some other language?

In addition, how should the name of the language be shown? Does it have to be written as "Bahasa Betawi" or is "Betawi" enough? Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 12:38, 8 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for helping me to edit some mistakes related to the programming language.
The fallback language should be Indonesian. As for the original name of the language, it is "Basa Betawi", but the English form of the name, I propose as "Batavian" as I have also already addressed CLDR on However, the original name of the language is "Basa Betawi".
Thanks! Bangrapip (talk) 13:54, 8 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks. Can it perhaps be written just as "Betawi"? Some languages of Indonesia omit the "Basa" or "Bahasa" word, and just write the name, for example "Jawa", "Bali", "Sunda". Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 13:10, 11 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, it is okay. Bangrapip (talk) 06:34, 12 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would like to ask. I would like to do a Betawi translation for Wikipedia and Wikimedia interfaces. Besides MediaWiki core project, which projects should I translate?
Thank you. Bangrapip (talk) 09:22, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've just put a list of links to recommended projects on your user page. I recommend going through that list from top to bottom.
Thanks a lot for your work! Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 09:33, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry for chatting again. I am currently translating MediaWiki:Copyright/bew. However, the translation cannot be saved and it says "Publishing the translation failed: You do not have permission to edit this page because it contains raw HTML which can be modified to affect all visitors." What should I do? Thanks. Bangrapip (talk) 10:25, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No problem at all :)
There is a technical problem that prevents translation of some messages by people who don't have administrator rights. Just write the text here as a reply to this message, and I'll post it for you. Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 10:40, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you very much. Here is the text:

Hi again!
I am currently translating Discussiontools-preference-sourcemodetoolbar-help/bew. However, it says "Publishing the translation failed: [fa1e8f3a8fc976e8f022209f] Caught exception of type Wikimedia\Rdbms\DBQueryError". What should I do? Can you help me to add the translation in Betawi as this:
Ni bakal nambahin palang peranti ke mode sumber balesan lekas èn penambahan topik lekas nyang nyerèntain jalan pintas bakal ngaru-ngaruin orang èn nambah sènggètan.
Thanks! Bangrapip (talk) 13:24, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is a bit strange. It was not supposed to happen with this message. Maybe it happened because there was a server upgrade a few minutes ago. Can you please try again? Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 13:45, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Wait a minute, let me try. Bangrapip (talk) 13:46, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, it works. Thanks. Bangrapip (talk) 13:46, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Betawi is now available as a user interface language


Good news: Betawi is now enabled here on translatewiki and also on the Wikimedia Incubator as a user interface language!

You can switch to it like this:

  • On the desktop: by clicking the language name at the top of the screen next to your username. (Currently, it's probably "English" or "Indonesia"), and then searching for "Betawi" in the panel that will open and clicking on "Betawi".
  • On a mobile phone on the Incubator: Go to incubator:Wp/bew and click "Set Betawi as your user interface language".

As you have requested, things that aren't translated are shown in Indonesian (if they are translated into Indonesian; if not, they are shown in English.)

I recommend selecting Betawi as your language and using it to test whether the translation works well. If you find anything that could be translated better, you can do it here. If anything is difficult, ask me any time :) Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 13:51, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for notifying me! Glad to hear about this. I'll contact you in any case I find any problem.
Regards. Bangrapip (talk) 14:00, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry for chatting again. I'm just curious when I look at some of the languages name in Some of them are translated to Indonesian. I'm curious, in any case I want to change translate the language name to Betawi, where could I do this? Thank you. Bangrapip (talk) 14:15, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think that these names are translated in CLDR. It's complicated, but possible.
I currently see it as "Betawi". How do you see it? Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 14:24, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ah, I see.
I mean, I saw like Old Church Slavonic is translated to "Bahasa Gerja Slavonia" to Indonesian. I was just curious whether there is possibility to translate these names to Betawi as the interface is already in Betawi.
So, it's related to CLDR. Then, no problem. Thanks for the answer. Bangrapip (talk) 14:33, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi @Amire80!
Sorry for chatting you again. I have two questions:
  1. Related to localisation, in any case of translation update, how many times in a week (probably) will the keys (with the translations) be updated?
  2. Probably this is not related to this field, however I still need to ask. I am currently developing Wikipedia for Betawi on Incubator. But, there are still a lot of missing templates. I have an intention to solve this. What are the templates that should be made on our incubator page? Thanks.
Bangrapip (talk) 07:48, 15 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  1. Everything you translate here is copied to the source code almost every morning. Everything that is translated before Monday morning is subsequently deployed to the sites later in the week. It's usually deployed on the Incubator on Wednesday evening and on Wikipedia in most languages on Thursday evening ("morning" and "evening" refers to Europe). If you need to fix something extremely urgently, you can ask an administrator to edit in the "MediaWiki:" namespace, but please do it as rarely as possible.
  2. It is indeed not related to translatewiki, even thought I wish it was at least a bit related! It should be as easy to localize templates as it is to localize extensions on translatewiki (see this page for much more info about this). Unfortunately, with the current technology, using templates that are available in other languages is very hard. You can try asking for assistance at the Incubator's Community portal.

The error message says: For security reasons, it may be impossible to translate this message on translatewiki. If you cannot submit a translation, please contact an administrator. See task T294760 in Phabricator. What should I do? Thanks. Bangrapip (talk) 08:09, 15 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The problem here is similar to what happened with MediaWiki:Copyright, about which complained earlier on this page.

Main page


Sorry for requesting again. I'd like to make a change in MediaWiki:Mainpage/bew, but it says:

"This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Established MediaWiki "main page" translations cannot be changed directly as it would disrupt wikis using the old translation. You can request changes in Support."

Could you please help me to change the text into: Balé-balé

Thanks Bangrapip (talk) 02:23, 19 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As the error says, that message is protected because changing it may cause links to the main page get broken in established. But thia language was added to MediaWiki very recently, and there are no established wikis in it yet, so in practice, it's not a big deal to change it now.
In general, your translation activity here has been amazing! Great work! Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 06:52, 19 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
