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:

  • Ensure plural keyword other is always present in exports for yaml and json (Gerrit Patch)
  • Re-label the "Save" button to be "Publish", to better indicate to users the outcomes of their action (Phab:T131132)
  • Translate's NaviToggle should be hidden in modern Vector (Phab:T251903)

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 4660 (+60); MediaWiki.org 5135 (+86); Commons 1357 (+14) [1][2][3]
  • Translate extension is installed on 312 (+2) wikis [1].
