New translation templates[edit]

Hi. You may have noticed I recently created some new wikispecies-based translation templates. The list is: {{Int Gender}}, {{Int Similar groups}}, {{Int Synonyms or similar groups}}, {{Int Type}}, {{Int Alternative classifications}}, {{Distr}} and {{Overview of}}, and also {{Faunaeur2}} and {{Commons(with translations)}}.
What is your opinion about them (unnecessary mess, too experimental to let continue, redondant to Localization project's templates, other)? Cheers. --Caftaric (talk) 05:33, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

@Caftaric: I recommend putting them into some pages (possibly in a sandbox) to show how they would work and why they would be superior. —Justin (koavf)TCM 06:06, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick answer. I'll do what you recommend and will let you know when it's ready. Cheers. --Caftaric (talk) 06:28, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
@Caftaric: Thank you for helping us to internationalize. Very helpful. —Justin (koavf)TCM 10:14, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
Hi, a fist version is available at User:Caftaric/sandbox. Cheers, --Caftaric (talk) 07:30, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
@Caftaric: Sorry if I was unclear: I think it would help me understand how this is superior if you showed me Version A and Version B side-by-side. Thanks again. —Justin (koavf)TCM 07:57, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
I think You were clear enough, but now I see what I have to do. In the meantime, sorry for the delay! I let you know when it's really ready. Cheers, --Caftaric (talk) 10:11, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

───────────────────────── @Caftaric & @Justin: These templates seems to work well, however one problem I see is that they – or rather their code base – will most likely become very big, and therefore perhaps slow or server-intensive. At present most of Caftaric's templates only include a handful of languages or less, however the Wikispecies:Localization database currently display a total of 33 different languages (plus English), and more are likely to be added in the future. Eventually all of these will have to be entered into each and every one of Caftaric's templates, should we decide to keep them. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 04:05, 2 January 2020 (UTC).

To Tommy. I should be doing tests to have an idea of the speed of execution. I'll let you know when I performed some. Cheers. --Caftaric (talk) 15:17, 5 January 2020 (UTC)
(also to @Justin) A newer version of the sandbox is available with a table showing side by side the new templates and the Localization project templates. Cheers, --Caftaric (talk) 15:17, 5 January 2020 (UTC)
