L'estensione Translate rende MediaWiki un tool incredibilmente potente per tradurre qualsiasi tipo di testo. Viene utilizzata in particolare per tradurre software e per gestire in maniera efficace i wiki multilingui.


L'estensione Translate ha molte funzionalità specificamente mirate ai traduttori, rendendo il codice sorgente il più semplice possibile. Nel frattempo, tutto viene eseguito all'interno di MediaWiki, che consente agli utenti un grado di libertà per la comunicazione e l'auto-organizzazione pressoché infinito.

Le funzionalità includono:

  • Structured wiki content page translation.
  • In-wiki localisation and exporting of software interface messages (or just about anything).
  • Web-based translation and proofreading interface, as well as gettext based export and import for off-line translation.
  • Vari aiuti per facilitare il lavoro dei traduttori:
    • display of translations in globally defined other languages, optionally expanded with user defined languages;
    • collaborative editing of documentation of the use and context of messages;
    • memoria di traduzione e traduzione automatica con strumenti esterni (Apertium, Microsoft Translator, Yandex.Translate);
    • visualizzazione dell'ultima modifica effettuata al messaggio nella lingua sorgente;
    • avvertimenti su errori comuni (come parametri non utilizzati) che sarebbero rilevati se si salvasse la traduzione in quel momento.
  • Pre-made modules for various open source products you can use as an example.
  • A versatile plug-in system to make it easy to add new projects as a message group.
  • Varie statistiche (richiede PHPlot per la grafica):
    • percentuali di traduzioni completate per tutti i gruppi di messaggi in tutte le lingue supportate;
    • percentuali di traduzioni completate in tutte le lingue supportate per ogni gruppo di messaggi supportato;
    • tool for making activity graphs for spans of time. Può visualizzare il numero di modifiche o di utenti attivi per giorno o per ora e include molti filtri;
    • cloud overview of active languages and translators.
Making Multilingual Wikis a Reality: this presentation shows how the Translate extension can make a wiki truly multilingual, based on the experience of KDE UserBase wiki.
Niklas Laxström, Translating the wiki way: Simple, fast, fun, Wikimania 2012 (slides available).

Translate extension, due to its large user base, is confirmed to be compatible with all reasonably recent browsers, except some minor (style) glitches which are quickly fixed.

Support and documentation

Translate extension was originally developed by User:Nikerabbit; many other users, like User:Raymond, User:SPQRobin and the Wikimedia Language team, have contributed to its code and documentation. It is maintained by User:Nikerabbit and User:Siebrand.

Prominent users of the Translate extension

  • — The biggest wiki-based site and community for translation of the interface of open source software.
  • — Documentation wiki for KDE project which uses the page translation feature extensively.
  • — Translates wiki content and uses the group states feature. Translation and translation review is enabled almost for all users of the wiki.

Tom Hutchison of Joomla:

The Translate extension allows for connection to a translation service and can auto fill the translation for you. At the same time a translator can make adjustments so you're not creating lots of pages with inaccurate translations.

That's ok if they are on different continents. That is actually a plus because work is getting done 24 hours a day. What they need is a support group chat for each other. They would all be able to read English if they are translating right? Teach a few simple wiki markup such as links and what to do with categories. Then they help others who in turn help others. We have over 40 in a chat who help each other and have fun at the same time. And they were all scared of the wiki but couldn't believe how easy it was once they started. They are actually waiting on me for more translations to do because I can't keep up with them. I know there is only 1 translating this language or that language. We have that too. One person is doing Swahili while another one is working on Japanese. Also, you mark pages for translation. You control whether to include templates or exclude variables in template calls.
