Translating offline

Hi {{{1}}}. Welcome to! You can now start translating. You should also check the portal for your language, the link is in the sidebar. Other useful pages are linked in the menu that comes with this message.

Your translations are transferred to the standard product every few days or every few weeks depending on the product. Please notice that it may take longer before you see your translation in the actual product. It can be just a few days before they appear on Wikipedia, but a few months can pass between each new release of FreeCol.

We wish you a productive and pleasant stay. Please leave any questions on Support. Cheers!


Welcome to the Betaeiki, You have made it and here you are...awaiting your valuble input. Many thanks--ramsis1978 13:30, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Best practices

Please do not delete pages, and then overwrite them with the English source to not have the 'ar' fallback shown. That's just how it is. If the fallback for 'arz' should be changed to another language than 'ar', please discuss that at Support. Meanwhile, the proper solution is to either translate messages, or do nothing at all to make them fall back. Replacing messages only creates confusion and improper overviews of (un)translated messages.

For now I have marked all the messages you have overwritten with the English source text as fuzzy, so they are properly reported as untranlated until they have been translated properly.

Thanks for your notice. I've made a query.

Egyptian Arabic

Hi, Dudi. Regarding Egyptian Arabic messages, I was using a simple conversion script to convert Arabic to Egyptian Arabic similar to the one used to convert between variants of Chinese but it seems that the script makes too many errors, and since you objected, I will stop using it. No harm was intended. If you need any help in don't hesitate to ask me. Happy Sham El Nesseem to you.

By the way I can run a script to delete all these automatically converted messages if you like but I have to get permission from a staff member because deleting thousands of messages may affect the wiki considerably.
