Welcome to the Translation Administrators' Noticeboard. This space is for anyone who needs to contact a translation administrator for actions regarding the translation of Wikispecies.
If you rather need to reach an "ordinary" Administrator, please use the Administrators' Noticeboard instead. For general conversation, see Wikispecies:Village Pump.

Translation[edit]

The heading of this page and the {{Tanheader}} template needs to be marked for translation… Face-smile.svgTommy Kronkvist (talk), 22:46, 28 October 2017 (UTC).

Templates in need of translation[edit]

These two templates will soon be used on many, many pages, and therefore urgently needs to be marked up for translation, and translated: {{Taxa authored}} and {{Taxa by author}}. Thanks in advance! –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 16:11, 23 November 2017 (UTC).

@AlvaroMolina, Chrumps, CreativeC, Kaganer, Koavf, Samuele2002, יונה בנדלאק: Please read the Template:Taxa by author discussion at the Village Pump, and make the necessary changes to the above templates accordingly. Kind regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 12:39, 4 December 2017 (UTC).
In my opinion, converting each template into translatable mode - is unsistematically way. See, as example, Louis Jean Pierre Vieillot. Well, phrase "225 taxon names authored by " will be translated. But what about the rest of the text? Section headers? Introduction? Bibliography? Have you thought about how this will look like when a user interface language, for example, is Arabic? Bad look.--Kaganer (talk) 19:38, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
If we are based on the approach that is laid in Wikispecies:Localization, then we needs to add there two new strings, for these templates (and then convert templates, of course). Ok, this will be works. But all this set of messages is looks very cumbersome. --Kaganer (talk) 19:38, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
If the community chose such a way of localization - translating certain "elementary" words and phrases, then we need to collect all these messages in a new MediaWiki extension, named like "Wikispecies messages", and translate this in translatewiki:, as other MediaWiki messages. These translated messages may be called from any wikitext and core messages with using {{int:}} magic prefix.--Kaganer (talk) 19:43, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
@Amire80: - maybe you have valuable advice about this topic? --19:49, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

Translation verification[edit]

Hello,

I have edited Template:Userpage in goal to make this template mobile responsive using Flexbox. I think this page is ready to be translated. Can you mark her for translation ?

Cordially. --Niridya (talk) 19:19, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

 Done Thank you/gracias/merci! —Justin (koavf)TCM 09:18, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

Wikispecies Policy page[edit]

Hello Translation Admins! The Enforcing policy section of the Wikispecies:Policy page has recently been updated. Since it is a particularly important page it is in the best interest of the entire Wikispecies community that all relevant changes to the translation codes are made as soon as possible. Thank you all for your many good contributions, and happy editing! –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 09:39, 19 January 2018 (UTC).

@AlvaroMolina, Chrumps, CreativeC, Kaganer, Koavf, Samuele2002, Stïnger: and @יונה בנדלאק: Today it's a month since the above mentioned Policy page got altered. Can some one of you please set it up for translation, and fix it? Thanks, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 20:45, 19 February 2018 (UTC).
Done. --Stïnger (会話) 21:03, 19 February 2018 (UTC).
Thanks! Could you please have a look at the newly created {{Not Wikipedia}} template as well? –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 22:02, 19 February 2018 (UTC).
Also done :-) --Stïnger (会話) 02:59, 20 February 2018 (UTC).

Templates for translation[edit]

Please mark up Template:Inc for translation. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 00:15, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

Done. --Stïnger (会話) 01:05, 22 February 2018 (UTC).
Thank you. And Template:Taxa authored, please. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:38, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
Also done. I was testing the template in my subpage and it is working correctly. --Stïnger (会話) 14:50, 23 February 2018 (UTC).

Pages for translation[edit]

Please note that the following pages needs to be marked for translation:

and that the translation tags for Help:Translation needs to be updated. Thank you. – Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 09:53, 13 June 2018 (UTC).

@AlvaroMolina, Chrumps, CreativeC, Kaganer, Koavf, Samuele2002, Stïnger: and @יונה בנדלאק:
Today it's over a month since the above mentioned pages got altered, and they've been untouched ever since. Can some one of you please fix them? Also, it would be very much appreciated if the Wikispecies:Glossary page was set up for translation, since I think it is a rather useful page for many of the Wikispecies users. Thanks! –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 17:28, 16 July 2018 (UTC).
I try to do this asap but I’m on a trip right now --CreativeC (talk) 23:09, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
I update Help:Translation page. - yona b (talk) 06:27, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

About Template:Autobiography - this is bad way for translation markup. There is a more correct way to make the translation displayed in the language of the user interface (if this was the goal). --Kaganer (talk) 10:33, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

 Done - converted to "autotranslated" mode; translatable content was extracted to Template:Autobiography/i18n. --Kaganer (talk) 11:02, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Central Kurdish help page[edit]

As you all know we have a page named Help:Translation. Thankfully it has been translated to a whole bunch of languages other than English, one of them being Central Kurdish (i.e. Sorani) which you can find here: Help:Translation/ckb. The creator of that page has made a total of ten edits to Wikispecies: all on the same day (October 13, 2017), and half of them to the above page. The page has never contained more than five words in Sorani, and as far I can tell those words aren't proper translations, or even related to Wikispecies... The rest of the page is still written in English, together with a fair amount of badly formatted wiki code. Hopefully someday an active and Sorani-speaking user with good intentions will join us here at Wikispecies, but until then I suggest we delete the page. That can only be done by a Translation Administrator, in other words one of you guys... 😉 Kind regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 20:20, 8 August 2018 (UTC).
