Indonesian translation of WikimediaMobile


Hi Brion, I just finished translating Wikimedia Mobile interface to Indonesian language and I'm wondering on how to configure it in order to use with my phone. So please to help me in order to activate this feature. And please add the Indonesian translation to the app too. Many users in Indonesia has used the app, specially iOS version. Regards.


Halo Brion, saya telah menyelesaikan terjemahan antarmuka Wikimedia Mobile ke Bahasa Indonesia dan saya bertanya-tanya tentang bagaimana cara mengkonfigurasinya untuk menggunakan dengan telepon saya. Jadi mohon untuk membantu saya untuk mengaktifkan fitur ini. Dan juga mohon untuk menambahkan terjemahan Bahasa Indonesia ke dalam aplikasi. Banyak pengguna di Indonesia yang menggunakan aplikasi tersebut, khususnya versi iOS. Salam.

Sorry for my bad English.

If the device language is set to Bahasa Indonesia the app should default to Indonesian Wikipedia, but if you need to manually override the language in the app (or have the device running in another language) you can do so:

  1. Tap "W" to open menu
  2. Tap "..." to open more settings
  3. Select "Search <language> Wikipedia" to change search language and pick "Bahasa Indonesia/Indonesian"

Still thinking about ways to make this easier, maybe make a switcher option findable on the toolbar or in the search... :)

Hi Brion, I mean is the language of the interface is not Wikipedia language. How can I make the interface language in Wikipedia app matches the language on my mobile device. Please help me. Sorry to bother you. Regards.

Sorry for my bad English.

Currently you would have to change the phone's user interface language to the one you want:

  • home button
  • Settings app
  • 'General'
  • 'International'
  • 'Language'
  • select language, eg Bahasa Indonesia

However a) this will only work for languages supported by Apple, and b) it will change the UI language for the entire system and other apps as well.

In theory you can use apps to add custom locales, but Android doesn't seem to fully support locales with three-letter codes. I'm not sure this is currently possible just now.
