en-ca translations?Edit

So, why are you "translating" pages into en-ca? The text is identical... --Clump (talk) 21:12, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

Clump: While some of the text is identical, not all of it is. ~riley (talk) 21:34, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
  • The ones that are the same render the same, and creating needless translation units/pages means those need to be updated as well if the original text changes. Could you limit it to ones that actually are different? --Clump (talk) 21:53, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Clump: Thanks for letting me know that is how Mediawiki prefers to handle translation units that are identical - I will leave the ones that are identical and limit translations to those that are different. ~riley (talk) 22:00, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
