Translate Page into Persian
Too much vandalism. Feel free to create a new thread if the issue hasn't been resolved.
Hey @Mobin2008, thanks for this question. This page doesn't seem available for translation, but more importantly, its scope is pretty limited. Would you rather be interested in helping deliver tech news more often to your community perhaps? As an example, see https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News/2019/28. Let me know what you think.
Is it not possible for me to translate this page into Persian?
The Mediawiki page, no. The Meta page, which is way more comprehensive as it also includes the information featured here, yes.
It is possible but not easy to translate this page. I'd agree with Elitre that your time would be probably more effectively spent on other translation needs, for now.
However, for reference: This page is currently setup using the ancient manual system.
You'd need to create an "/fa" subpage similar to Template:MediaWiki_News/fr, but you'd also need to manually notice any update to the English page via your watchlist or similar. (you can see how many of the existing translations are outdated, because of this problem).
Hope that helps!
My apologies, I hadn't even noticed that such a system was applied to this page. I just found the language navbox at the bottom of the page, which probably speaks volumes to how easily findable (and hence useful) these translations are? Glad that the user can achieve their goal though!
So how is this page translated into other languages?
OK.I became aware of this.Good time, goodbye. All talk.
