I am the creator, for example, of the Ele Não movement arcicle. By hand. It looks good, doesn't it? It is well written, mostly

Crap. How can I not be a "new user" anymore?

MJL (talkcontribs)

@Bageense: That's weird.. you're not a new user... yet you also did use the tool (yikes). In the future, you might want to create something like that in draftspace, but I'm not exactly sure what issue you are having there specifically.


Also, please ping me for faster responses. :)

@Bageense, Thank you for pinging me. I just tried this process myself and had it fail on both English Wikipedia and Wikipedia in Scots. However, I did have success translating it in . You might like to try that, but I guess Machine translation is disabled otherwise. Maybe @Vermont would know because they are smarting than me..?

Not particularly sure; I have very little experience making articles with Content translation, and 0 experience writing with machine translation other than deleting bad ones. I’m not sure what the issue is, but I will say it’s better to translate it yourself as machine translations aren’t always accurate. It could be that it requires NPP rights on the English Wikipedia to use it.

Actually, Google Translator is quite accurate nowadays

@Vermont I have those rights as of recently. :/
