Re: [Mediawiki-i18n] [Wikitech-l] An update on localisation inMediaWiki
great suggestion to have context hints for messages.
Niklas thought the same thing a few days ago and implemented it. Now we need
'people in the know' to document them. The hints are being displayed when
We keep the messages in a language code assigned to
'local' in ISO 639-3, 'qqq'. An overview of currently documented messages, that
can be edited by everyone with the role 'translator' can be found
<snip> Now if only we could get some
better context documentation for each message there won't be such problematic
translations. Take for example 'editingsection' or 'editingcomment'.
The English is pretty vague and sure enough the translation was rather silly
when I finally saw it in Wikipedia. Siebrand claims it only takes 16 hours
to translate the most used messages, but that's only if you know exactly what
the variables in messages are and which messages are variables in other
