The Translate extension makes MediaWiki a powerful tool to translate every kind of text. It is especially good as translating software and at managing multilingual wikis in a sensible way.

Mga tampok

The Translate extension has many features specifically targeted to translators, while making back-end integration with actual source code as easy as possible. Meanwhile, everything runs inside MediaWiki, which allows users an almost endless degree of freedom for communication and self-organization.

Features include:

  • Structured wiki content page translation, from various languages at the same wiki.
  • In-wiki localisation and exporting of software interface messages (or just about anything).
  • Web-based translation and proofreading interface, as well as gettext based export and import for off-line translation.
  • Various aids to make the job of translators easier:
    • display of translations in globally defined other languages, optionally expanded with user defined languages;
    • collaborative editing of documentation of the use and context of messages;
    • translation memory and machine translation with external tools (Apertium, Microsoft Translator, Yandex.Translate);
    • display of the latest change in the source message;
    • warnings about common mistakes like parameters that are not used.
  • Pre-made modules for various open source products you can use as an example.
  • A versatile plug-in system to make it easy to add new projects as a message group.
  • Various statistics:
    • translation completion percentages for all message groups in all supported languages;
    • translation completion percentages in all supported languages for any supported message group;
    • tool for making activity graphs for spans of time.

Can display either number of edits or active users daily or hourly and includes many filters;

    • cloud overview of active languages and translators.

Translate extension, due to its large user base, is confirmed to be compatible with all reasonably recent browsers, except some minor (style) glitches which are quickly fixed.

Prominent users of the Translate extension


Tom Hutchison ng Joomla:

The Translate extension allows for connection to a translation service and can auto fill the translation for you. At the same time a translator can make adjustments so you're not creating lots of pages with inaccurate translations.

That's ok if they are on different continents. That is actually a plus because work is getting done 24 hours a day. What they need is a support group chat for each other. They would all be able to read English if they are translating right? Teach a few simple wiki markup such as links and what to do with categories. Then they help others who in turn help others. Mayroon kaming mahigit na 40 sa isang chat na tumutulong sa isa't isa at nakikipag-usap sa parehong oras. And they were all scared of the wiki but couldn't believe how easy it was once they started. Sa katunayan, naghihintay sila sa akin para sa higit pang mga pagsasalin dahil hindi ko kayang sumunod sa kanila. I know there is only 1 translating this language or that language. Mayroon din tayo iyon. Ang isa ay nag-uusap ng Swahili habang ang isa ay nagtatrabaho sa Hapones. At pinirma mo ang mga pahina para sa pagsasalin. You control whether to include templates or exclude variables in template calls.
