Hi, you are invited to the GSoC / OPW IRC AllHands meeting on Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 15:00 UTC (8:30pm IST, 8am PDT). We have done our best finding a time that works decently in as many timezones as possibles. Please confirm at qgil wikimedia.org so I can add you to the calendar invitation and I have your preferred email for other occasions. If you can't make it's fine, but let me know as well. Thank you!--Qgil (talk) 18:02, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Language variantsEdit

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)

PageLanguage extensionEdit

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)

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 MediaWiki.org to Traditional Chinese (zh-hant), but MediaWiki.org 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)

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?
