Hello, As a translater to your Edit newsletter, I’d love to also support you make the Talk_project page multilingual. Would you kindly consider tweaking that page for i18n perhaps? Of course above is not very very urgent, and readers may not have more time at hand to input. Wish you safety, and hang in there, --Omo

hi @Omotecho – we'd be thrilled for you to help us make the Talk pages project multilingual! What do you think we can do to make that work easier for you?

PPelberg (WMF) I, too, am excited you are reaching out to expanded readership. As for translation, two (plus two) points:

  • please always separate section title from the body text: translators can finish at least section titles while on bus/lunch break, and community will grab the outline as you always have essence in section title;
  • kindly break your writing into 30-50 words clusters, or insert translation tags that way. Longer it goes more vulnerable to discourage somebody to start working on it;
  • too technical, though, tvar tags are very good as links are less broken by simple misspelling by translators;
  • and finally, I have not checked its feasibility, though please consider applying a trick, Special:Mylanguage/ before any link to multilingual projects. Plain link jumps to /en page, while with that trick, readers start at /local_language pages, with /en as fall-back. One extra click-less feeels sooo good and being invited.

So, those are a memo which of course needs triage. Thank you indeed to care for the community, and we won’t be here without you guys.
