Language names in local language

Hi, I'm contributing to the translations in Tamil language. I find that the names used for langiuages are incorrect and I want to rectify this. It is similar to the problem discussed at here. I searched MediaWiki translations and I'm not sure where exactly I've to make changes. Could you please help? thanks.--செல்வா 16:23, 30 April 2011 (UTC) (I go by the first name Selva).

For example the names of the languages in my language here. Where should I make the changes to correct the names and to add local names for the untranslated/transliterated names? --செல்வா 16:47, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
They come from CLDR. Please see FAQ#Language_names and use Support page next time. Thanks. – Nike 20:44, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Could you please install the extension linter? It would be very useful to find lint errors.

Ajeje Brazorf (talk)12:24, 17 June 2021

Can you elaborate how it would be useful in

Nike (talk)12:37, 17 June 2021

It'll find lint errors (read mw)

Ajeje Brazorf (talk)14:41, 17 June 2021

For translations or other content? Does it require a separate parsoid?

Nike (talk)14:42, 17 June 2021

for every namespace. I dont know about the separate parsoid.

Ajeje Brazorf (talk)14:44, 17 June 2021

No it require an only parsoid.

May you help me to add new projects?

Hi. I write some tools to help wikipedia, and the tools are across different languages (please see task list). In the past I used some trick to maintain messages in different languages, for example, this, this, and this, but it is so inconvenient. I wonder if I can merge my projects into translatewiki. Can you help me? Thank you!

Kanashimi (talk)00:22, 20 January 2021

Hi. I recommend to follow the process on and fill a Phabricator task using the template provided. That's the best way.

Nike (talk)09:21, 20 January 2021

Hi. My username has been changed on meta mediawiki. Therefore, I wonder if it is possible to change here as well? If you change it, I would be grateful. Thanks.

3 years ago, I left this wiki once, but want to contribute to the project again as a translator. Will you give me translator? Thanks.

Tag problem


The French translation was not displayed correctly. I made a change to MediaWiki:Echo-pref-tooltip-thank-you-edit/fr. Can you incorporate it?

block user

Hi, Please block User:Sourav Halder & mass delete all of his translations. He is who is globally locked. He translate using google translate most of the time. I can't clean up all of his translation.

Thanks 😊

Sourav Halder (talk)05:57, 28 March 2020


Fi-wikin estolokissa on eston kestona engl. sana "infinity". Olen etsinyt järjestelmäviestiä, jossa sen voisi kääntää suomeksi, mutta en löydä mistään millään haulla. Onko ideaa, missä se on?

User BaRaN6161 TURK and his contributions

Hello, User:BaRaN6161 TURK translates using Google Translate. Almost most of them are wrong. He has deleted many correct translations and added machine translation. His contributions should be "undone".

Hedda (talk)19:33, 22 January 2020

I gave them a brief block, please use this as an opportunity to continue the discussion at Thread:User talk:BaRaN6161 TURK/Çeviri. Thank you!

Nemo (talk)21:08, 22 January 2020

Thanks Nemo. Is there a way to revert his edits fastly? He did like hundreds of grammar "corrections" which normally aren't correct at all.

Rapsar (talk)04:06, 23 January 2020

We don't have any software to do that, but tools like mw:Manual:Pywikibot/ exist. Ideally you reach an agreement with the user so that he/she reverts the unwanted edits.

Nemo (talk)17:35, 23 January 2020

Thanks. Can you undo his all contributions?

Request for assistance

Hello! I am GhotuoIncubator, an new contributor to this project. I started a new thread on the <<support>> page here to localize the Ghotuo language (which is consistent with the guidelines); however, as it has no replies yet, I was advised to seek assistance from you, and reply there. Thanks in advance, GhotuoIncubator (talk) 11:18, 24 December 2019 (UTC)

MediaWiki eikä järjestelmäviesti


Haku-toiminnossa oli aiemmin erilaisten nimien joukossa "MediaWiki", koska se kuvasi kaikkea MediaWiki-ohjelmistoon liittyvää. Nyt joku on mennyt suomentamaan sen järjestelmäviestiksi, koska "Järjestelmäviesti" on fi-wikissä nimiavaruuden nimi. Tuo ei kuitenkaan tarkoita mitään järjestelmäviestiä vaan edelleen MediaWiki-ohjelmistoa. En itse osaajaksa löytää virhettä, joten pyytäisin sinua muuttamaan asiat takaisin oikeiksi.

Lisäys: Mahtaako vika olla syntynyt tämän sivun luomisen tuloksena?

Pxos (talk)15:08, 15 October 2019

Kyllä se on näkynyt mielestäni Järjestelmäviestinä vuosikaupalla, aina siitä lähtien kun haun nimiavaruudet on näytetty lokalisoituna ylipäänsä (en nyt löydä milloin tämä on tehty).

Request for administrator flag

Hi. I need to delete translations of disabled zh-variants. It cause problems in the downstream as it won't fallback properly, so people have to create local variant to overwrite, even though it will be complete duplicate. I'm an ia and administrator on zh.wikisource and you can find me on Phabricator and irc in the same username, thanks.

Viztor (talk)05:09, 7 August 2019

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think deleting those messages here in Translatewiki will help. You would need to delete them from the actual message files in Gerrit. Since the variants are disabled I don't think they should be exported again after they are removed from those message files.

Jon Harald Søby (talk)11:49, 21 August 2019


Hi Nike, could you please restore your change to MediaWiki:Mainpage/sc and turn it back to Pàgina printzipale? As I wrote before, there is no project that uses Pàgina base for its sardinian version of the main page. There are not pages that would be influenced, both Wikipedia and the Wiktionary always used "Pàgina printzipale". On gerrit the patch was declined because "The existing name is nearly 10 years old now" but it's a wrong name that was never used. It's just a 10-year old error. I would like to create the Main pages for Commons and Wikispecies, but the name for those should be the same as the Wikipedia one so for now I still can't do it.

L2212 (talk)17:10, 13 March 2019

Ok I'll look into it.

Nike (talk)13:20, 14 March 2019

Hi Nike, have you checked what you wanted to see? I would like to be able to create those Main Pages, when could you change the name?

L2212 (talk)08:51, 24 May 2019

It was changed, but the change didn't stick. I updated it on wiki now. Hopefully it sticks.

Nike (talk)12:48, 24 May 2019

Ok, let's hope it works. Thank you very much!

Request for rename of account "Alangi_Derick" to "X-Savitar"

Hi Nike,

Please could you help me rename my account from "Alangi_Derick" (as it is currently) to "X-Savitar"? Public wiki rename as been done already. This wiki and Wikitech is left (if I remember correctly). Thank you!


Alangi Derick (talk)08:44, 8 March 2019


Sivulla "MediaWiki:Sp-translate-data-SpecialPageAliases/fi" on kielto muokata sivua suoraan ja sitten punalinkki toimintoon, jota ei ole. Miten sivua pitää muokata? Sinun lisäyksessäsi oleva sana "hieroglyyfit" pitäisi muuttaa yksiyiseksi.

Pxos (talk)19:43, 27 February 2019

Muutokset pitää pyytää sivulla Support tai Phabricatorissa.

Nike (talk)20:01, 27 February 2019

Hi Nike, Can you please help me with this request? I don't know whether I've done it correctly and I don't seem to know who to ask. Thanks.
