Re: "External links" translation


Actually, I'm translating, since I've started it, into Brazilian portuguese. So, "Links externos" is the right translation for that language and "Ligações externas" refers to European portuguese. I'll make these changes to my previous translations, asap. Thanks for remembering me. Best regards. - Fabsouza1 (talk) 02:56, 21 October 2014 (UTC)Reply

Help:VisualEditor/User guide/es


Hi Macofe,

I was thinking about using Help:VisualEditor/User guide/es to update the old copy of w:es:Wikipedia:Editor visual/Guía del usuario. The new version is only about half translated. Will you be working on that page again soon? If so, then I'll wait for you. Please let me know your preference. Thanks, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:25, 23 October 2014 (UTC)Reply

I'll take a look now. There are many 'strings' which are actually images. Don't know what to do about them.
Done, go ahead.

  Done I copied it over. Thank you so much for your help!

I think the usual thing to do with those image 'strings' is to leave them "untranslated" unless you can change them to an image that uses the local language. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 17:52, 27 October 2014 (UTC)Reply

Re:Manual:Index.php translation


Some pages, after being marked for translation, show the following message: ."Unknown error: "titleblacklist-forbidden-edit". There is probably a list of pages that are with some restriction for translation. If you want to, report this problem on Bugzilla. PS: Just curious, do you speak portuguese? - Fabsouza1 (talk) 03:03, 19 November 2014 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for the info. I don't speak Portuguese. With some effort I can read it (same thing for Italian). I just make some trivial or repetitive translations (in many languages), so translators can focus on the other ones. Macofe (talk) 19:04, 19 November 2014 (UTC)Reply
Anyway, welcome and good work. - Fabsouza1 (talk) 03:20, 20 November 2014 (UTC)Reply

Singular vs. plural in Finnish


Hi, do you speak Finnish? I corrected this and another translation. "Internal link" (singular) is "Sisäinen linkki" in Finnish, while "Internal links" (plural) is "Sisäiset linkit". --Silvonen (talk) 04:12, 19 March 2015 (UTC)Reply

Lineamientos de traducción de Locale-es


Gracias por la retroalimentación. ¿Dónde puedo encontrar los lineamientos para la redacción de documentos en el locale 'es'? Para evitar errores como el tratamiento de dirección entre tú y usted, uso de impersonales, de conjuntivos, de la segunda persona del plural, de redireccionamiento, de subordinación de cláusulas, etcétera. De igual manera, el método correcto para dirigir cuestiones como esta. De antemano, gracias. (Escrito por

Lo traté por última vez aquí. No recuerdo si hay un lineamiento escrito. Pero parece haber consenso desde hace tiempo. Macofe (talk) 23:19, 17 July 2015 (UTC)Reply
