Hi, Xiplus, and thank you very much for helping to test out the terminology gadget!

There is a kind of hidden feature of it that I made after I saw Portal:Zh/Glossary/General. Since that page shares a glossary for several variants, I implemented a feature where you can have only one terminology for several languages, and variants are set as being redirects to one of the language codes.

With this, there is a special magic word that only works in the gadget, that I called $VARIANT. That way we can define Portal:Zh/terminology.json as the main terminology page for Chinese, and in the translation and usage notes fields we can create a special template that is like (this is just an example) {{zh|$VARIANT|simplified translation|traditional translation|sg=Singaporean translation}}. This way it can be easier to keep terminology consistent even across different language variants, without entering everything twice (and trying to keep it in sync).

What do you think, should we try to implement this for Chinese + variants? I can help with the practical stuff of course.

Thanks for your information. I have converted it. And it works!

Content Translation link


You changed MediaWiki:Cx-tools-view-guidelines-link/zh-hans and MediaWiki:Cx-tools-view-guidelines-link/zh-hant to a URL in the Chinese Wikipedia:翻譯指引

However, this is not the way to do this. This message is ignored and has not effect on the actual Chinese Wikipedia. If you want this URL to used as the link for Content Translation users in the Chinese Wikipedia, an administrator mush change the local message w:zh:Cx-tools-view-guidelines-link in the Chinese Wikipedia itself.
