Welcome to Betawiki!

Hi Morten LJ. Welcome to Betawiki. Before you can use Special:Translate, and Special:Magic, please request translator rights at Betawiki:Translators. 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 at Translating:Languages. For an overview of the languages that are being worked on here, you can have a look at Translating:Developer log. Other useful pages can be Support and Import requests.

Once you have started translating, please remember to often request a commit of your translation work at Translating:Tasks. This makes the number of changes easier to handle for the devs.

I wish you a productive and pleasant stay. Cheers! Siebrand 11:44, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Why didn't you just request a rename? We are not too fond of all kinds of ghost accounts... Siebrand 19:14, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Eh, I don't follow. I did get my username changed from User:Morten LJ to User:Morten, I then created the Morten LJ account from this account to prevent anyone from impersonating me, I will not use that account. Is this OK? --Morten 20:01, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Yeah. I was mistaken. Carry on ;) Siebrand 21:30, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
I can't blame ya, you seem to have a lot of things going on ;-) --Morten 21:32, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Yeah. I need more people to do stuff. I'll start bugging you when you Danish guys have the Danish localisation under control and have at least finished the WMF extensions :) Thank you for your understanding. Siebrand 21:37, 9 March 2008 (UTC)


Hi Morten. I see you are changing infinitives to imperatives. Please use infinitive (see this edit). The problem is that English infinitives are the same as imperatives, but in this context they are infinitive. Thanks, SPQRobin 15:04, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for bringing my attention to this issue. I am not totally sure what you mean, so can you please give me an example from my own edits? (I will ask my teacher girlfriend to explain it to me as well ;-) --Morten 13:11, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
[1], you changed "vise" (infinitive) to "vis" (imperative) (I don't know Danish, but I searched what this change was :p). Anyway, what I mean is, you should use infinitive when a user *can ask* something from the computer, and imperative when the computer *asks* something from the user. SPQRobin 13:31, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
OK, but I am quite sure the imperative is the correct in these cases. E.g. the MediaWiki:Rev-delundel message is shown on the history pages where it links to the page where you can show and hide revisions (i.e. like "enter password"), thus it is imperatives. --Morten 13:56, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
No, "enter password" is required if you user wants to log in. But hiding revisions is not required for anything. It is only needed if a user *wants* to hide a revision. See the difference? SPQRobin 14:13, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
There may be a different. But in these messages (at least in Swedish, but I think also in Danish) imperative is most correct. Infinitives are definitely grammatically incorrect, they cannot be used by themselves in that way. /Lejonel 14:26, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

edit conflict

I can see my argument is wrong, but I still think my conclusion is correct, however I don't think I am fit for this argument (I am not good with the humanities). However I can tell you this, "[at] vise" is translated to "[to] show", "vise" thus only makes sense in a sentence like "I want to show you something" (da: Jeg vil gerne vise dig noget). "vis" is translated to "show" and makes sence in a sentence like "Show me something" (da: Vis mig noget). I don't know if this brings us any closer to anything... sorry. I'll discuss it with the other Danish guys if they become active. --Morten 14:35, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
Ok, I'll leave it up to you, because I don't know the languages (though, I still think infinitive is better :p). SPQRobin 14:58, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, tough discussion between the two of us, but I will discuss it with other Danish translators if they become active. --Morten 20:41, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

I agree with Morten - "Vis" is definitely correct in the context.--Peter Andersen 21:13, 25 March 2008 (UTC)


Hej Morten. Jeg har ikke som sådan planer om at lave de store oversættelser, men da der jo er ting, der skal oversættes fra tid til anden, vi det være smartere at gøre det her end direkte på Wikipedia. Jeg ved ikke om der er brug for det store koordination. Havde du noget i tankerne?--Peter Andersen 21:13, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Hej Peter, dejligt at vi kan være flere om at dele byrden ;-) Eftersom du ikke har de store planer om oversættelser så tror jeg ikke vi bøhøver nogen videre koordination, du må sige til hvis du har problemer med et eller andet. --Morten 07:34, 26 March 2008 (UTC)


Listusers heter nå Bruger. Det høres veldig feil ut for meg – har du noe imot om jeg endrer den til Brugerliste? Jon Harald Søby 13:35, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Brugerliste er helt fint ;-) --Morten 13:39, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Da endra jeg det via Special:Magic. Det er imidlertid to andre spesialsider som ikke har danske navn enda, kunne du ta en titt på dem? Jon Harald Søby 15:07, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Sure thing ;-) --Morten 16:53, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Gjort --Morten 17:25, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
