Translating offline

Hi Hercule. 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 next to 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!


What level of proficiency would you rate yourself for Wuu ?? Thanks, 12:04, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

I just start to understand, but I have contacts with native speakers who should not yet be able to make the translations by themselves. As an admin I'd like to be able to correct errors (currently we have two special pages unavailables because of bad translations (page name duplicated) --Hercule 12:24, 9 January 2009 (UTC)


Sorry,that's my typing mistake.I will Carefully next time.--Wmr89502270 08:23, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

No problem --Hercule 08:49, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Getting higher localisation levels in Wu Chinese

Dear Hercule. As a non-native Wu speaker, you have been the only person contributing to Wu in the past half year - thank you for that. As Wu is the 22nd most spoken language in the world, with an estimated 77 million speakers, we would really like to get the localisation levels up, so that MediaWiki, and through that Wikipedia, will become more accessible and usable for Wu speakers. I would like to ask to you if you can please make an effort to get more Wu speakers in here that can help make the MediaWiki localisation more complete. All Wu speakers can benifit from this. Thank you in advance! Siebrand 13:10, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Feedback request


I am working to add new features to Search Translations (link) and would like your feedback on the same. I have an idea of a new feature, called "text search with autosuggest" through which you can specify your search filters in the search box itself (apart from the UI), and also have autosuggest to show the possible values for the filter options. An example is this.

Please write a comment here about what you think of this feature. Also here you may read about the other improvements that are planned.

Thank you and I shall be waiting for your feedback.

Testing new translation features

Hi Hercule. We are testing some new ideas to improve the usability for the translation tools used at and we want to hear from the community. If you are interested in trying some prototypes you can fill the participation form. Once you have filled the form, we'll contact you to perform a short testing session (less than 30 min. in total) during this or next week.
