TranslateSvg is a MediaWiki extension that creates a Special page to provide a native-style interface for translating SVGs in line with the SVG1.1 specification.


To see the latest version of the extension in action, watch File:TranslateSvg.ogv, which is updated with every new release. (Note that any visible SVG text alignment issues are the result of problems in rsvg for Windows and not problems with the extension.)


NOTE: Latest instructions are at this page.

  1. Download a snapshot of the extension
  2. Extract the files and place them under $IP/extensions/TranslateSvg/
  3. Add the following line to LocalSettings.php in your MediaWiki root directory:
    require_once( "$IP/extensions/TranslateSvg/TranslateSvg.php" );
  4. Installation can now be verified through Special:Version on your wiki
