About this board

Please provide feedback about the Content translation tool on this page.

We suggest checking the Frequently Asked Questions page first.

When reporting a bug, it will help a lot if you will indicate the following things:

  • Which article were you translating and to which language
  • Which browser did you use (Firefox, Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, etc.)
  • If you're getting any errors, please provide log from browser console if possible. To open browser console: press Ctrl+Shift+j (or cmd+alt+J () on a Mac).

In case you are familiar with Phabricator, please consider reporting a bug there.

phab:T308802 is tracking technical details of this. As a workaround, go to the destination project and start your translation there for now.

Hi. I have been using the translation tool for translating articles from English and French wikipedias to Persian wikipedia for months already. Today this function is not working anymore. After clicking the "New translation" buttom, it just jumps back to the translate page with the message "On the English Wikipedia machine translation is disabled for all users".

Cheers

Hi. I have been translating with this tool from english to euskara and everythinh was fine until this afternoon, when I could no longer continue translating. Each and every time I try to translate any article, once I click the Translate from English button it redirects me to the main translate page instead of to the editing window –I don't know if I'm explaining myself quite well–. I don't know what to do, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, though!

Hello Danwasd,

Sorry about the issue you are having while continuing your translation. Please, can you provide:

  • A link to one of the articles that behaves this way?
  • Tell us if this happens in all the browsers, if not all, which ones?

Thank you.

Danwasd (talkcontribs)

My problem is exactly the same as tracked here T308802, in any browser.

After clicking the "New translation" buttom, it just jumps back to the translate page with the message "On the English Wikipedia machine translation is disabled for all users".

Maybe can be useful that the translator app can automatically add information about translation in the discussion page of translated item.

How can I restrict article creation on cywiki to only extended confirmed users, please. The community has confirmed that this is a desirable option several times over the last 3 years. Thanks. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 14:54, 20 May 2022 (UTC)

Hi, why it is not possible to start on English Wikipedia as it was before?

Translation from EN to CZ was tried.

Alexandre Banza - translation doesnt load.

Tuga1143 (talkcontribs)

Hello. I was translating Alexandre Banza from english to portuguese and everything was fine. I went to lunch and when I came back, I opened the translation tool again and the translation is there, but it doesnt load. I tried to logout and login, reload page, etc, and the work done so far doesnt load. Every other work in progress loads, except this one.

What can I do?

UOzurumba (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hello Tuga1143,

Sorry about this issue you are having with continuing your translation. A similar problem has been reported, and it is being resolved. You can track progress on this issue here.

Please let me know if the similar problem I mentioned differs from yours.

Thank you!

Tuga1143 (talkcontribs)

Hi @UOzurumba (WMF)

It is similar, but in my case I can translate any other article, and it loads. Any other article works perfectly, except the one I mentioned.

Thank you.

UOzurumba (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thank you, Tuga1143, for pointing the above out. I will mention it in the bug report.
