Hi! I do a lot of translation from en.wiki to sco.wiki. When I do this, Template:Cite web doesn't translate as it should (I've also seen this on translations from de.wiki show up all sorts of errors). It gives an error:


"A reference could not be transferred to this translation since it uses a template with a different structure". Is there a way of editing this (potentially through template data)? I see both templates are identical on both wikis, so surely there is something more that needs doing? ~~~~

Mapping templates between languages

I'm currently working on Extension:FileImporter, and interested in how the TemplateData approach here might be used to help us convert templates and parameters when moving files to commonswiki. Two questions jump out so far,

  • How are templates mapped to one another when the names are different? Are you using Wikidata, e.g. [[d:Q5611625]]?
  • What has your experience been with the "aliases" field for mapping parameters? Has there been discussion about increasing the amount of structure? Are many exceptions encountered?
