- Requested user-rights: Translation administrator.
Hi, I'm Michael, I'm a Wikipedian since 12 years and since 2 years I work for Wikimedia Germany (WMDE) in the software development department for community communications. In that role I often edit pages here that should be translated. Having the translation administrator rights would allow me to work more efficiently and independently without asking others repeatedly for marking translations. I therefore apply for translation administrator rights for my work-account. -- Michael Schönitzer (WMDE) (talk) 16:19, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
- Support I looked through his edits creating the translated page Technical Advice IRC Meeting/Invitation-Template and they're ok, and I know he'll have good advisors for future efforts. :) @Michael Schönitzer (WMDE):, do note that you should always localize links so that they work across wikis, and wrap them in tvar tags so that changes can be made easily and so that translators have less to manually type (or copy&paste, or wrestle with in latin script). For the next few creations, I strongly recommend getting a 'sanity-check' from an experienced translation-admin before publicizing/recruiting, as translators really really dislike having things changed after they've done their work!
