Language variants edit

Hi. I noticed some consistent problems, and had some thoughts, and collated them all at Talk:Localisation statistics#en-GB and en-CA - notes, after bouncing them off some helpful folks in IRC (thanks Reedy and MatmaRex!). It was further suggested that yourself and cscott would be the best people to bounce it off next (as this is potentially related to Language Converter), hence I'm requesting your input there.

(Disclosure: My personal bias, as a UK-grown, Canadia-residing, US-media absorbing individual, is that w:WP:ENGVAR works well, and these 2 interface-variants are silly.) Thanks for any thoughts you might have, at that thread! –Quiddity (talk) 23:33, 18 September 2013 (UTC)Reply

PageLanguage extension edit

Hi. I asked this question in the support forum about setting page language, and was directed to the PageLanguage extension here. Trouble is, the download instructions there give me a directory empty except for .gitignore and .gitreview, and I'm not enough of a git to know what to do next. It doesn't look to my git like a repository, so "git pull" doesn't work. Am I supposed to go find some other revision?

Secondly: The page for the extension doesn't actually explain how to use the new parser function. Do I just put "{{PAGELANGUAGE:he}}" at the top of the page, or something?

Thanks for any help.

(In response to your message on my page): Seems to work great. Thanks very much. Larrydberg (talk) 15:07, 13 October 2013 (UTC)Reply

How to conditionally set page language? edit

My wiki (here) has lots of categories and is bilingual. I want the text at the top of the category page to be displayed in the current interface language. It would be nice if I could just supply both "Category:dance" and "Category:dance/he" like I do for MediaWiki messages, but alas this doesn't work.

So I do this: Page Category:dance contains {{int:CategoryDanceHeader}}, page MediaWiki:CategoryDanceHeader contains the English text, and MediaWiki:CategoryDanceHeader/he contains the Hebrew translation. This works great except for one thing: The page language doesn't get set, despite the fact that the latter page starts with {{PAGELANGUAGE:he}}. So of course the page looks like a mess, as you can see here. Evidently the template doesn't set the page language when only transcluded into a page, or something like that.

Can you think of anything I can do to fix this? I could start page Category:dance with something like {{PAGELANGUAGE:{{CURRENTLANGUAGE}}}} if I could get my hands on the current interface language---but I don't know how to do this. Is there any other way to conditionally set the page language?

I'll also ask this question of the UniversalLanguageSelector people, but you seemed the first line of defense. Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work. The idea was to parse the current language out of FULLPAGENAME on the Category:Dances page, correct? But FULLPAGENAME there never ends with /he regardless of the interface language, so the #titleparts expression always returns an empty string.
Perhaps I misunderstood and you meant to put that expression on the transcluded page, MediaWiki:CategoryDanceHeader/he. But that's the same as what I'm doing, and is known not to work.
Further ideas gratefully accepted. Thanks.

Can i request to add language Traditional Chinese (zh-hant)? edit

As MediaWiki support language Traditional Chinese (zh-hant), I want translate document at to Traditional Chinese (zh-hant), but not support Traditional Chinese. I think it will make zh-hant users to use MediaWiki easier.

Nemo told me to speak to you if i'm interested. (User_talk:Nemo_bis#Can_i_request_to_add_language_Traditional_Chinese_.28zh-hant.29.3F). Cwlin0416 (talk) 09:57, 17 July 2015 (UTC)Reply

Can i translate pages to Chinese using Traditional Chinese? edit

Thanks for your reply. I found the variants drop-down list near talk page button.

Translate extension have some bugs that i can translate page to Traditional Chinese. VisualEditor/Portal/zh-hant

But compare to VisualEditor/Portal/zh, as you see, there is much different at terminology, and some paragraph haven't translate. So here is two questions:

  1. Can i translate pages to Chinese using Traditional Chinese?
  2. If can't, how to improve LanguageConverter's conversion pattern?

You are being notified because we have identified that your account meets the inactivity criteria stated in the policy: no edits and no administrative log actions for the last 2 years.

  • If you want to keep your advanced permissions, you should inform the community (at Project:Current issues) about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. A community notice about this process has been also posted on said page. If the community has a discussion about it and then wants you to keep your advanced permissions, please contact the stewards at the stewards noticeboard, and link to the discussion of the local community, where they express their wish for you to continue to maintain your advanced permissions.
  • If you wish to resign your advanced permissions, you may do so by filing a request for removal on Meta-Wiki.
  • If there is no response at all on one month after this notification, the stewards will proceed to remove your advanced permissions without further notice.

In ambiguous cases, stewards will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review.
