Linking to a specific message

Niklas Laxström
Hello translators and translation administrators,

There is a new feature in the Translate extension. Please translate this message related to the new feature:

The new feature allows giving a direct link to a particular message (like I did above :). Previously it was only possible to link to a specific message group.

This feature can be accessed from the translation editor. Click the message title to open a dropdown with an entry "Link to this message".

There is an additional undocumented feature: if you add limit=N to the URL params (where N is a number) you can link to multiple consecutive messages.

I think they serve different purposes, Vira. The new link links to the interface in Special:Translate, which has more features (showing documentation, machine translations and translations in other languages), while the down-arrow links to the message itself. Both links are useful, but for different purposes.

Re: Linking to a specific message

Philippe Verdy
One bad thing is that we don't get the comparison and don't see context in which they are used, and it's often diffcult to get the exact message group where the messages were inserted, and get back to the normal interface.
As such these messages become "corrected" isolately and these corrections will create incorherent terminology over time, or other related messages won't be fixed.
