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:

  • Remove features and code from the old translation editor.
  • Force translation pages to have same content model as source page (Phab:T258756)
  • Do not list all pages when marking a page for translation (Phab:T255334)

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

Usage dataEdit

  • Translatable pages: Meta 5717 (+72); MediaWiki.org 5288 (+15); Commons 1358 (-4) [1][2][3]
  • Translate extension is installed on 366 (+53) wikis [1].
