@DannyS712: When would this be used in the text of the directory itself? —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:20, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
@Koavf: I'm afraid I don't understand the question - the custom localization here is missing these messages --DannyS712 (talk) 20:23, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Translating the site interface or the MediaWikia software happens at translatewiki: but this page is for translating the actual content of this directory (e.g. "entomologist" or "publications"). It seems like you are trying to translate some word that would by used by the site's interface like "List of blocks" or something rather than a word that would occur on the entry for a certain species or taxon authority. Is that correct? Hm. Well, it does appear that we have a section for the site interface now, actually. Shows what I know: this page has grown a lot from when I started it. Thanks, D.Justin (koavf)TCM 20:37, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Resolved. The missing translations have all been added by Koavf. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 00:18, 22 March 2020 (UTC).

Request for translate Arabic templates[edit]

I have experiences on translating into Arabic. So, I hope to participate on translating Arabic templates on this wiki. Omda4wady (talk) 07:22, 10 March 2020 (UTC)


[Links = Linkit] and [External links = Ulkoiset linkit]. Can someone add these? Thanks in advance! Jnovikov (talk) 07:37, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

Capital letter[edit]

MediaWiki:Type locality/fr This is used with a capital letter in English, I fail to see a reason for why it is not the same thing in french, pleace replace it with "Localité type". Christian Ferrer (talk) 18:41, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Note that it is the same issue with all the few french translations that I have just opened, therefore this is maybe the same issue with almost all the french translations. E.g. "Conservation status" vs "statuts de conservation", "Syntypes" vs "syntypes". I don't see any grammatical rules that can justify this difference, example see en:Syntype, used as a title or as the first word of a sentence, there is a capital letter, but not when this word is in the middle of a text. That is the same thing in french. Therefore, in the extand that the translations of specific words are used in the same gramatical context, either the English version MediaWiki:Syntype must have a lower case, or the french version MediaWiki:Syntype/fr must have a capital letter. If necessary I can list all the french translations that should be amanded. Christian Ferrer (talk) 23:28, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
Hello @Christian Ferrer, and thank you for notifying the community about this. I'll start working on it in later today, when I've got more time. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 00:09, 22 March 2020 (UTC).
@Christian Ferrer. It took a bit longer longer than anticipated, but now I think it's done. Please have a look at the Wikispecies:Localization page again to double-check. (Also, please be aware that almost all of the words in the Localization page's Templates/Modèles sub-section are exceptions. They are used within sentences in paragraphs of text, hence should not be capitalized.)
Lastly, if you find any untranslated words that you know the French equivalent for, please add them below and an admin will add them to the database. Best regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 19:58, 23 March 2020 (UTC).
Very fine. Thanks you very much for the hard working! I checked all and it seems good. The very few that have no french translations are technichal terms of whitch I don't know the translations. If ever I know them one day, I will ping you. Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:34, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Capital letter request[edit]

Can someone change this to form "Synonyymit" (to first capital letter). It occurs in subheadings, where all words is written with first capital letter in finnish language. Kindly Jnovikov (talk) 17:30, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

 Done. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 17:39, 25 March 2020 (UTC).

Taxa by author[edit]


Please add a new message to allow translation of {{Taxa by author}}.

The message content should be List of taxon names authored by $1.

Once it is added, the template can be changed to be {{int:Taxa by author|<span class="hcard"><span class="fn n">[[{{{1}}}]]</span></span>}}.

Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 07:12, 18 April 2020 (UTC)

@Tommy Kronkvist: can you take a look? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 17:59, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712:  Done. Please excuse the long delay, but I've got a very busy schedule at the moment. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 13:51, 12 May 2020 (UTC).
@Tommy Kronkvist: the message is currently named List of taxon names authored by $1 - can you rename it to just Taxa by author? --DannyS712 (talk) 19:37, 12 May 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Sorry about that. I guess I'm a bit too overworked – and underpaid! :-) Anyway, I corrected it a couple of hours ago and I see that you've already edited the {{Taxa by author}} template accordingly. It looks good, so thanks!
I've added the Swedish translation, but we need of course add localizations for all the other languages as well. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 21:52, 12 May 2020 (UTC).
Thanks so much. --DannyS712 (talk) 21:56, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

Additions of Norwegian (no)[edit]

Oh, and could you at the same time, add MediaWiki:Name/no = Navn? If we can start a new language like that, cause I noticed that Norwegian is missing fron the list. --Sabelöga (talk) 21:33, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

@Thiotrix: What about no? --Sabelöga (talk) 17:33, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm not sure how to add a new language to the translation table. It seems to be more complicated. --Thiotrix (talk) 19:59, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
That's unfortunate. Oh well, give me a shout when you guys figure that out, I might be able make more translations to Norwegian. --Sabelöga (talk) 22:22, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
