Instead of let system auto generate the Marker like <!--T:1--> in article, can we modify/control an article to have one or two markers since I already have the tranlation text for some of the languages ?

Tacsipacsi (talkcontribs)

Yes, if you already had the same translation unit on the same page, you can (and, in order not to waste translators’ time, should) reuse them by manually adding the appropriate translation unit numbers using the same format the software would add them; it will pick them up. However, beware that if a translation unit was not present in the previous version marked for translation, the translations won’t be marked outdated if you change the unit compared to how it last appeared in translation. Also, it works only if the translation was on the same page, and using Translate; manual translations can’t be imported this way.

Lotusccong (talkcontribs)

Appreciate that you can explain the steps manually adding the appropriate translation unit numbers .

Tacsipacsi (talkcontribs)

Simply add them before marking the page for translation, using the same format the system uses.

How to show the language box in sidebar ?

Summary by ExE Boss
Lotusccong (talkcontribs)

When we use the <language> tag, it will show in the page but how to make it show in the sidebar menu ?

ExE Boss (talkcontribs)

That’s tracked in T204076, which is blocked on T287075.

Tacsipacsi (talkcontribs)

No, it’s not blocked. This feature has been ready for years; it’s blocked only on Wikimedia sites because of our interwiki language links. Third-party wikis (like translatewiki.net) can already use it by setting $wgPageTranslationLanguageList to 'sidebar-only', 'sidebar-fallback' or 'sidebar-always'.

Field with $parameters to insert obstructs the edit field

MarMi wiki (talkcontribs)

On lower (ex. 1024x768) resolutions (or when there's a lot of text) the $parameter buttons obstructs the bottom part of the edit box - they cover part of the text, and don't allow to set position of the cursor by clicking. Please move it outside of the edit field (ex. below it).

Placing below into your user skin css do that:

.grid .tux-editor-actions-block .tux-editor-insert-buttons{
 position: initial;
}

Do you happen to use Firefox 88? There’s a ticket about this issue in Firefox 87–88, but older and newer versions (including Firefox 89, released as stable two days ago) have been reported to be unaffected. If you have the same issue, simply updating Firefox (hamburger menu → Help → About Firefox) should fix it.

MarMi wiki (talkcontribs)

Yes, I was using FF 88. After update the edit field expands correctly.

By the way, I noticed that the $param buttons shows after the documentation loads in the right panel (it can sometimes take a few seconds). If they are not connected (but they probably are), then maybe display those buttons before starting to load the doc?

Machine generated translations

Has anyone built a bot to pull sections from the translate wizard, pass them off to some translation service, and post them back again in order to perform mass initial translations?

Automating 'prepare for translation'

Deku-shrub (talkcontribs)

I find myself just accepting the suggestions on Special:PagePreparation all the time. Is there any bot or existing piece of automation that can simply add the markup on all / bulk pages?

Nikerabbit (talkcontribs)

Not that I know.

I suggest include a [Translate] link in every section (in a similar way to the [Edit] link in every section in a Wikipedia article), to translate a section in a MediaWiki site page. It would make things much easier.

Deku-shrub (talkcontribs)

Definitely

I suggest use a MediaWiki Extension:Translate manner to be used for the Content translation tool

Failed to load translation aids: Title does not correspond to a translatable message

when I set up Translate on my own wiki, with a sidebar message group, when I'm trying to translate it, this message shows on the right. How can I get the qqq (message documentation) show on the right?

Nikerabbit (talkcontribs)
Lakejason0 (talkcontribs)

I used the script in that manual to make job queue run correctly before I install these extensions.

Lakejason0 (talkcontribs)

My wiki works on 1.35.1, and since I don't see a bundle version for that I manually download every single pieces.

Nikerabbit (talkcontribs)

Special:Version should state the version of Translate even if you got it outside the bundle.

Lakejason0 (talkcontribs)

It's "2020-04-20 (31488e7)".
