Every time I compile the Bio and I try to public, the traslation tool gives me errors.

Try to publish the translation as personal draft and later move the article to article name space.

Lost several translated paragraphs during translation English -> French

Cathrotterdam (talkcontribs)

Hi, this morning, I open the translation on which I've been working and half of the paragraphs do not show up. I try to turn off and on my browser but still, not sign of many of the paragraphs already translated. The article is quite long (should I have saved the work on a draft on the way?). Do you know how to get it back? This concerns the article Language (English version) to be translated in French. I use the browser Firefox. Thanks, ~~~~

Hi,

Which browser and operating system are using?

Can you please open the JavaScript console (usually it's done with F12) and say whether you see any error messages?

The right bar elements started blinking.

Rjoshua (talkcontribs)

Everything was fine, until all the buttons on the right bar started blinking without reason, I could not select any translation option. For everything else the design looks attractive. It was fun, thanks.

Nikerabbit (talkcontribs)

Which browser and operating system? Does this issue happen on other pages or sites?

Rjoshua (talkcontribs)

I used Google Chrome on Windows 10. In fact, I only tried the translator on a single page that contained many tables. I wanted to automatically translate the paragraphs but, keep the tables in the original because it was better to translate them manually, and that was when I started doing that the problem occurred.

The page was this:

Hello! Every time I try to translate an article from Portuguese to English, the tool completely ignores all references and I end up having to add them manually, which is quite annoying for bigger pages. I tried to add them with the "add reference" button (you know, when you click the ref in the source content and than add it wherever you want in the new page), but it still won't work. It happened with wikipedia:Unlikely and wikipedia:Montão de Trigo Island, to name a few. I didn't try the "add reference" button with them because I only discovered it a few hours ago, but I tested it by translating a random page to my personal English Wikipedia sandbox and it didn't work.

Hans Haase (talkcontribs)

I also made a bad experience with the sandbox. The reason is, the content translation tool still seems to keep the translated article related to its origin. Whenever this is true, the revision history would much likely be used to maintain an older translation later, depending which of the articles got more contributions after the translation. The sandbox does not fit that philosophy due the sandbox stores not the same article which is a fundamental change to the sandbox page. I am playing with the idea, to have my sandbox to be deleted by an administrator to create a new sandbox with another page ID. Maybe this would solve the problem.

Nobody here seems to be giving a damn about it, but it won't hurt to add that this happened again with wikipedia:Alcatrazes Islands.

Cannot Add References to Target Language

Hjk321 (talkcontribs)

The FAQ says that you can put your cursor in a place, go to a reference, and click "add" where is this add button, because just clicking on it doesn't work.

Hans Haase (talkcontribs)

Mark the word You want to have linked, then select the link target as offered or choose to link to another page.

Hjk321 (talkcontribs)

That's linking, not using references (like [1])

Framawiki (talkcontribs)

Hello Hjk, what FAQ are you talking about ? I can't find it in Content translation page

Hjk321 (talkcontribs)

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Content_translation/Documentation/FAQ#How_does_Content_Translation_handle_references?

Hjk321 (talkcontribs)

The Wikipedia I write for (Simple English) prevents page creation from machine translation, and as such references are not copied to the target language.

Until support is added for dynamically copying references, I suggest the following workaround:

- Using the options gear next to "publish," set the destination to a personal draft.

- Translate your article with placeholders for your reference (such as "[1]")

- Publish the draft and edit the article again.

- In a new tab, pull up the source article and view the wikitext.

- Copy the >ref< tags and paste them over your placeholders in the target language.

- Publish your draft

Translation from zh-TW to other languages

When trying to translate an article from zh-TW to another language, the source text on the left column is displayed in simplified Chinese, sometimes with some Traditional characters (azastorr on Wikipedia)

Hi,

Thanks for the report. Unfortunately, there is no way to switch the language variant at the moment. I filed this as a bug: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T181150

Cscott (talkcontribs)

Parsoid will be getting some support for variant conversion in this quarter and next.

With Japanese IME on Windows I find difficulties. Often input, cut and paste operations are ignored so I had to copy and paste from text editors.

Hans Haase (talkcontribs)

No links and other formatting is supported. I also tried to request an implementation of word analysis for automatically wiki link targeting. Each first word should offer an article suggestion for linking to it when the translating user chooses to link target with human intelligence. I don't know if it still exists.

Hi I tried to use the translation Tool on an IPad to no avail. Both with Chrome and Safari. When I click on "start translation" nothing happens. Is it something I can fix or does it means the tool isnt available with my configuration ? TXS

Tlumaczenie nie dziala a wstawianie nowych tlumaczen jest bardzo zawile, nie mozna dac wlasnego zdjecia, wystepuje blad.

Hans Haase (talkcontribs)

Tłumaczenie oparte jest wyłącznie na oryginale. Zmiany nie mogą być dokonywane w kreatorze tłumaczeń. Jeśli artykuł zostanie opublikowany, może być edytowany jak zwykle.

The translation is based only on the original. Changes may not be made in the translation wizard. If the article is published, it can be edited as usual.
