|How to start|
Welcome to Betawiki!
Hi Mattbray. Welcome to Betawiki! Please create a user page on which you describe which language(s) you will be working on. If you are going to be an active user here, please also add your name to the languages you will be working on. Before you can use Special:Translate, and Special:Magic, please request translator rights. If you have a wiki where a lot of translations have already been made, you can make an import request. Other useful pages are linked in the translatewiki.net menu that comes with this message.
Once you have started translating, your work will be committed to the standard product every few days. If you want to explicitely request your work to be added, please make a request for commit.
I wish you a productive and pleasant stay. Cheers! Siebrand 03:02, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
There has been no activity on Rotuman in few months. What's the status? – Nike 15:54, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
Hi. Welcome back after being inactive for a while. I was wondering if you could give me some information as you are coming near getting 'rtm' added to MediaWiki (currently 125 messages have been translated, we will commit at about 250 of the most used). Should we configure another language than English for 'rtm' to fall back to if interface messages are not available? I am not even sure if we would have that language available. According to ethnologue Rotuman has at most 9.000 speakers, and there are a few languages that may be usable as fallbacks: Fijian Hindustani (380k speakers - no localisation yet in MediaWiki), and Fijian (fj) (330k speakers - 7.7% translated). Anyway. Please give it some thought and reply, please. Cheers! Siebrand 11:46, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
