Translating offline

Hi Metalhead64. 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.

We wish you a productive and pleasant stay. Please leave any questions on Support (the link is also available on any page, in the navigation sidebar). Cheers!

Two tips for localisation

  • please do not use parser functions. Not every installation has them (reverted one instance)
  • please stick to the English source message, and do not invent additional text (reverted 2 instances). If you think a source message should be changed, please open a new topic on Support.

Cheers! Siebrand 10:07, 19 October 2008 (UTC)


Is there anyway that I can add all the MediaWiki messages on this site that start with "Right-" and finish with "/en" to my watchlist? Because I want to keep an eye on them for whenever the FuzzyBot updates them. On Fandom or Miraheze I would just request a database dump. But I'm not sure if Translate has a database dump tool of any sort.

Also I noticed that a few of the Fandom messages in the Wikia namespace are outdated. Could I be bold and update them or do I have to start a discussion and get a consensus first?

P.S. Forgive me if I'm not supposed to edit your talk page. But the editor is being a pain and won't let me submit my message as a thread. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 01:49, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

Frage zu einer alten Übersetzung

Hallo Metalhead, vor Urzeiten hast du diese Seite übersetzt. Im Moment lautet der Text folgendermaßen: „Dies ist eine Liste aller globalen Benutzergruppen, die auf dieser Wikifarm konfiguriert sind mit ihren zugehörigen Benutzerzugriffsrechten und Wikisätzen. Benutzer mit den Berechtigungen können eine Gruppe durch Entfernung aller Rechte löschen.“

Ist es eine Liste aller Gruppen und ihrer Rechte? Dann sollte nach sind ein Komma gesetzt werden.

Oder sind die Benutzergruppen auf dieser Wikifarm mit ihren Rechten konfiguriert? Dann müsste nichts geändert werden.

Ich tendiere zu ersten Lesart, wollte aber sicherheitshalber nachfragen. Viele Grüße

Nachtrag: Zu dieser Seite wollte ich auch noch etwas fragen: Was würdest du von Anwender oder Benutzer statt Verbaucher halten?

Viele Grüße

Brettchenweber (talk)21:37, 23 November 2022

Hallo Metalhead64, danke für die neuen Rechte! Wenn ich irgendetwas falsch mache, sag mir einfach Bescheid. Viele Grüße

Hi Metalhead64, Could you please make the revision invisible please. Thank you very much!

Is there any sensitive information in this revision? If so, I can suppress this revision.

Hi! Thanks for giving me normal translator rights, and sorry for being late on posting this message (i should have thanked you earlier). However, i personally feel that i need a bit of assistance: On the wikimedia incubator, i have created the Ghotuo test wikipedia; However, i cannot find the Ghotuo language in translatewiki to translate the inner templates, could you assist me in finding a solution? Thanks again!

GhotuoIncubator (talk)21:21, 22 December 2019

Bassicaly, i just found the way to request a new localization here, but i still feel unsafe.

GhotuoIncubator (talk)21:46, 22 December 2019

With Wikimedia Incubator, I cannot help you. Sorry.

\m/etalhead 11:27, 23 December 2019

I meant to enable the Ghotuo language for localization here, where I think I found the way of requesting that on the Support page (posted yesterday-still no replies).

GhotuoIncubator (talk)18:29, 23 December 2019

I'm not responsible for enabling new languages here.

\m/etalhead 19:36, 23 December 2019

Sorry, I didn't knew that. A last question: Do you now someone who is responsible for enabling languages?

Wrong "machine" translations

Hi, I saw that you're solving such cases and I would like to ask how to proceed with them. In the Bulgarian translations we are having a bunch of translations 3000+ done by an contributor that does not have any knowledge of Bulgarian and translated most of them with "Machine" or based on similar translations in Bulgarian or other Slavic languages. I'm working on fixing this for some time, but there are translations from the "MediaWiki:Apihelp-****" category, that require deeper knowlege, which I don't have in some cases. Is there an easy way to remove the current translation, so the system to use the English one? Maybe to mark them somehow with template for deletion? Reporting every single one will take time and I don't think I can invest days in fixing other contributors mess.

StanProg (talk)11:17, 4 June 2019

It is possible to automatically delete all pages created by the user.

\m/etalhead 12:38, 4 June 2019

I found the {{delete}} template. Is it ok to replace the content of the specific pages/messages with this tempalte, passing as first parameter an explanation why this message should be deleted? --StanProg (talk) 12:43, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

StanProg (talk)12:43, 5 June 2019

No, don't use the template because it will be exported as-is.

I have a script that can fuzzy all translations by a given user.

Deletion of translations is very time consuming process, especially if they span across multiple repositories.

Nike (talk)12:55, 5 June 2019

The problem is that I have alrady reviewed and fixed a lot of those translations and if they are all marked as fuzzy, I will have to review them again. What I need is a simple way to remove the wrong translations that I can't fix at the moment. They are API related translations and are pretty much useless for developers and will just confuse them, if they are even used. If this is not possible, I will ignore them for now and will try to find a solution later.

Please change Mainpage/sc

Hi, I would like to correct MediaWiki:Mainpage/sc from Pàgina Base to Pàgina printzipale, to have the same title in all the projects, but my edit was identified as harmful. As you can see here the name used on the Sardinian Wikipedia is Pàgina printzipale, and the same one was used for the Wiktionary as well, when it was still published (now it's in the incubator). Maybe I'm wrong (in that case, please let me know), but I think there's no project that has a Main page in Sardinian named "Pàgina Base" right now.

I've already tried opening a thread in the support page, but the only reply I got was not from an administrator.

\m/etalhead 15:40, 13 February 2019

Can't you change it? I thought it would be possible for admins. Should I contact Nike, if he made the filter?

L2212 (talk)18:05, 15 February 2019

In the other thread there was a patch submitted to change the message. If the patch was approved, the change should be visible on TWN.

Hi! İ tried to edit the page MediaWiki:Babel-1/sr, in order to improve the translation, but İ can’t. İ made the change in sr-ec and sr-el pages, but if the page MediaWiki:Babel-1/sr isn’t changed, the text on the template won’t be changed. For example, on my userpage, the old text is still there. Could you do something about it, please? Thanks in advance!

Josep Maria Roca Peña (talk)23:12, 1 October 2018

No. The title is locked by an translation administrator for the following reason: This language code should remain unused. Localise in sr-ec please.

\m/etalhead 08:02, 2 October 2018

And what should İ do to update the template? İf İ change only the sr-ec version, the Babel template when İ add Serbian remains unchanged. What can we do instead?

Josep Maria Roca Peña (talk)10:20, 2 October 2018
