Hindi translation not available..???

चंद्र शेखर (talkcontribs)

I tried translating an english article to hindi but on clicking the add translation (अनुवाद जोड़ें) button in the paragraph, the original english text is only getting pasted over there with an error in right window that Machine Translation is not available in Hindi (यांत्रिक अनुवाद हिंदी में उपलब्ध नहीं है.).

So, just wanted to know When translation is not available then why the tool is available in my preferences?

And when it will be available?

Hello, Content Translation provides machine translation through Apertium and Apertium currently does not provide English to Hindi automatic translations. This is the case for many languages. In this situation the 'add translation' copies the text from the source language column (whether English or any other as per the selection made by the user) into the target language column, but with some modifications in the content like for instance the links. The links shown on the target column will be from the target language Wikipedia.

Since we rely on Apertium to provide automatic translations, we are unable to give any estimate on when they plan to make English-Hindi translations available. However, Urdu-Hindi is available and we will provide that in a few weeks. Even without machine translations, many languages have been using Content Translation's other feature to create new articles. We would like to request you to give it another try and let us know what could be done better to make it work well for Hindi. Since this is a beta-feature it is totally upto you to enable or disable it from your preferences. Thank you and do let us know how we can help.

Hey Runab, Thanks for the update, I am using the other features and doing manual translation by now. Will report for any bugs for sure. Wanted to tell, i am ready to help Apertium for any translation helps if they need.

@चंद्र शेखर: Thanks! We are working with Apertium to figure out a way in which more people can participate to make their translation system better and can handle more languages. Its just a start for now and we hope to have more updates later in the year. Do let us know if you need any help.

Why don't you try the GoogleTrans gadget which interfaces with the Content Translation system and allows Google machine translation while keeping the HTML. You need to make a private version of the GoogleTrans gadget in the destination wiki common.js file of your user account. Then select a paragraph (or part of a paragraph) in the middle column of content translation, and then press the CTRL-ALT key at the same time. Consult for help on how to do this. It works for all the languages that Google translates.
