TranslateEdit

Wikimedia's software is translated to hundreds of languages using the Translate extension for MediaWiki. In addition it is used to translate help pages, newsletters, policies, announcements, banners, etc. It is installed on Wikimedia special projects, translatewiki.net and many other sites. Translate is part of MLEB. Improvements made in the last month include,

  • Prevent duplicate translation unit error from showing twice. (Phab:T236153)
  • Convert PageDisplayTitle to language variant. (Phab:T230681)

And a handful of other behind the scenes improvements. Please follow link to see a full list of patches submitted to the extension during this month.

Usage dataEdit

  • Translatable pages: Meta 4686 (+4); MediaWiki.org 4418 (+37); Commons 1266 (+4) [1][2][3]
  • Translate extension is installed on 300 (0) wikis [1].

Comment: Changes for December, 2019 might appear less because the November, 2019 report was made quite late.

Universal Language SelectorEdit

Universal Language Selector provides language selector, list of suggested languages, input methods and web fonts. It is part of MLEB. Notable changes made in the past month,

  • Update setlang to display confirmation dialog to change language. (Phab:T63115)

Please follow this link to see a full list of patches submitted to the extension during this month.
