Hi, how I can change "help us" from english to 'help us/ky' kyrgyz language? Here kyrgyz text:

This old message contained a rendering with categorization. It was just changed ot use preformatted text, in order to remove this categorization of the thread. The page Help us/ky was in fact created a long time ago by you on 30 August 2013 (just one minute after you posted this message), and this cleanup allows cleanup of closed requests.

いいえ。日本語のポータルサイトは Portal:Ja です。

Shirayuki (talk)21:39, 11 August 2021


Template:Optional is strange and dysfunctional, and I'm not sure how to fix it.

It was recently changed to use "system messages" i18n-template-optional-1 and i18n-template-optional-2, but this doesn't actually work because they are not real system messages.

I tried to revert it to the change before it, but this doesn't totally help either because I see a "Template loop detected" error when it's rendered in the message documentation pane.

Do you happen to know how to fix it? You were involved in editing that template in the past, and you understand localized templates better than I do :)


Amir E. Aharoni (talk)07:46, 22 December 2020

It's because that MediaWiki:i18n-template-optional-1 and MediaWiki:i18n-template-optional-2 messages are not existed due to AbuseFilter problem. I'm sorry for breaking the translation.

Edit: I have reverted all my edits from the translations. I thought it could work for one language page, but it was disappointing.

MuratTheTurkish (talk)12:03, 22 December 2020

I have prepared Template:Optional for translation. Request a translation administrator to mark the page for translation.

Small i18n fixes

Hello, are you still interested in sending patches to gerrit for small i18n fixes like typos and maybe gender/plural? We have quite a queue now and I'm trying to decide how to handle it.

Nemo (talk)11:27, 3 April 2015

Purodha has found several, as I hinted. I'm making a list of the quick ones which we don't need the maintainers' help, feel free to "steal" some from Purodha. :) See the list at User:Purodha.

Nemo (talk)10:35, 14 May 2015

Yay! Today we got your last open patch merged. Thanks again.

Nemo (talk)16:11, 28 September 2015


Hi Shirayuki!

I'd like to use this opportunity to thank you for all the enormous help that you are providing here. It's really, really valuable.

I have one particular request if you have some time: We are enhancing the testing of the ContentTransation extension in the Japanese language.

Can you please complete its localization some time?


Amir E. Aharoni (talk)08:39, 19 February 2015

Hi Shirayuki,

We are enabling this beta feature in the Japanese Wikipedia tomorrow, and it would be great to get it as fully translated as possible. There are just 42 untranslated strings left, so it should take less than an hour ;)


Amir E. Aharoni (talk)11:57, 22 June 2015


今日は。先日はアドバイスありがとうございました。 少しまとめてポータルを読み、翻訳者の皆さんの名前を見つけたのでご挨拶しています。 翻訳は楽しいですが私はIT育ちでないのでウィキペディアは異世界です(^^;) 生き物が好きなのでEOLに集中するつもりでいます。これからよろしくお願いいたします。

- ウィキペディアゼロ: ウィキペディアゼロのプログラムに参加している携帯電話会社においては、データ通信料金がかかりません

ここの編集で「(現在のところ日本国内では利用できません)」という文字列を「※for Japanese speakers in foreign countries」というコメント付きで削除しておられますが、「この文字列を削除する」ことが「for Japanese speakers in foreign countries」であるということについて、意図をお聞かせ願えますでしょうか。 その文字列を追加したのは私の判断で、その意図としては以下のようになります。

Androidを日本語で利用しているユーザー、日本語話者の多くは日本に住んでいます。海外に住む日本語話者よりも圧倒的に多いでしょう。それらの人たちが注釈なしで「ウィキペディアゼロのプログラムに参加している携帯電話会社においては、データ通信料金がかかりません」という文を見た時、「そういうプログラムがあるんだ! では日本のどこのキャリアを使った時に対象になるの?」と自然に思うはずです。このとき「日本のキャリアでは対応してない」という情報があれば、それ以上調べる必要がなくなります。驚き最小の原則 によるものです。単に「ある人の驚きを最小にする」というよりは、「できるだけ多くの人の驚きを減らす」という観点でもあります。 一方で海外の日本語話者にとっては、日本国内で利用できないという情報があっても、特には困りません。 これらのトレードオフにより、この情報を残しておこうと考えたものです。

poor quality translation


あなたは善意で翻訳しているのではなく、いたずらしたくて来ているのではないかと思えるものも存在します。 少なくとも、使われている場所を勘案する能力の無い人が翻訳に参加するのは害悪にしかなりません。

!!FUZZY!! となっているような更新を要する場合を除き、翻訳の上書きは議論での合意なく無断で行わないようにしてください。

Your help is needed

Hi there :) I just want to let you know that your help would be appreciated to finish translations in Lithuanian for MediaWiki's VisualEditor software. The current progress is 35%, and VE will reach lt.wikipedia in a few weeks (Jan 13th). Also, if you feel like you want to walk an extra mile, please check if this language needs further help with the tasks listed at mw:VisualEditor/TranslationCentral#To_do. Thanks, and happy 2014!

Support request and project

Hello. Especially when you mass-add support request templates, please include the project. In most of the cases where you've added it today, it should have been project=twn, not the default MediaWiki, because it doesn't involve changes to MediaWiki code or it's completely unrelated to MediaWiki, as in Summary:Support/How to get a source language (English) .po file?.

Nemo (talk)11:09, 31 December 2013

Thank you from Blockly!

Thanks so much for the Japanese translation of the Blockly puzzle! If you'd like to view the translated version online, it's at [].

Espertus (talk)00:36, 30 May 2013

Thank you, too. Blockly is very useful for students.

Shirayuki (talk)12:10, 30 May 2013

Shirayuki, Blockly is now 97% translated into Japanese, with only 12 messages remaining. If you could polish those off, that would be fantastic.

Ellen Spertus (talk)23:48, 30 November 2013

Did you translate with machine translation? :(

Shirayuki (talk)09:11, 2 December 2013

No, of course not. Did the translation look that bad? It was done under the auspices of at

Ellen Spertus (talk)17:53, 2 December 2013

For example, these translations are inconsistent and "odd":

Much the same is true on the other translations.

Shirayuki (talk)22:29, 2 December 2013

Please add full triage templates

Hi. I see you make edits like this to tag open topics. Please make them complete, and add project and dev, too. This immediately classifies the issues for a project, too, and allows a developer to easily claim the issue, or allows for easily closing it later.

Siebrand17:50, 2 December 2013

Blockly English

While I always welcome your contributions, I was surprised by your contributing en-gb to Blockly. Blockly's default English is Canadian. (Blockly's creator, Neil Fraser, is Canadian, and objects to en being assumed to be en-us, which is why he uses en.) I've considered doing an en-us translation but don't see the need for an en-gb one. What was your thinking? Thanks!

Espertus (talk)17:16, 18 October 2013

On, "en" is assumed to be "en-us".

So, "en", "en-gb", and "en-ca" are valid language codes and "en-us" is not valid.

See also: Thread:Support/Add_language_en-us

Shirayuki (talk)00:46, 19 October 2013

I realized that might be the reason after sending my message. I'll have to discuss with my Canadian overlord whether this is an acceptable solution. :-)

Why message "proofreadpage-disambiguationspage" is translated "Aimai" in Japanese?

I think this message is translated "曖昧回避" in Japanese. Why it is translated "Aimai" in Japanese?

아라 (talk / 아라는 다 알아)06:45, 28 August 2013

You are talking about Proofreadpage-disambiguationspage ("Template:disambig").

Sorry for the mess

Sorry, somehow I confused language when translating. My apologies, I'm going to revert what I did wrong right now.Qllach (talk) 17:03, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

I see you already did it. Thanks and sorry again.Qllach (talk) 17:08, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
Qllach (talk)17:03, 19 August 2013

Thanks for your patches

You're being very helpful, thank you.

There has been some resistance to the changes to American spelling of some words that we have made recently. I think we should try to not fix comments in code, but focus on messages in the user interface only. Those really should be made consistent across MediaWiki core and extensions. It's de facto (i.e. not decreed, but in practice) American English spelling that we are using in the language code "en".

Siebrand18:54, 6 March 2013

I'll be careful from now on. About gerrit:52405, I've fixed it.

Shirayuki (talk)21:48, 6 March 2013

Thank you for the n-th time from me too :) and I hope you don't mind that I added three more ideas for small consistency/typofix patches that you can see in your userpage now. If you're not interested, edit the support template and "assign" them to me, thanks!

Nemo (talk)20:28, 21 July 2013

Sorry for closing some issues you had open patches for. Is this for you only, or for someone else to see? We usually try to avoid duplicating the tracking work of bugzilla and gerrit; you and your reviewers can see the open patches on the gerrit dashboard (e.g. siebrand's).

Nemo (talk)13:59, 29 July 2013

I know it. My patches could be rejected, so the issues should not be closed until the patches are approved.

Shirayuki (talk)23:25, 29 July 2013

Sure. Still, is this tracking for yourself or for others?

Nemo (talk)04:42, 30 July 2013

Wow, I see you now have more than 150 merged commits. I would never hoped for so much when I suggested to give a look to the git tutorial to submit some changes yourself. :D

Nemo (talk)09:00, 6 August 2013

150!? Thanks for telling me about the git tutorial. :)
