About this board

Welcome to my talk page.

This page might be protected at some moments due to vandalism. Leave me a message elsewhere using the {{Mention}} or {{Reply to}} template. If you're using Structured Discussions/Flow, you might need to use {{FlowMention}} instead.

I tend to remove pages that do not conform to the project scope. In short, if I removed it with that reason, you're more than likely in the wrong place. I provide the page content upon request. It helps if you provide the name of the page I deleted - I tend to delete a lot of pages, and it isn't obvious to me which page is yours.

Hi! Thank you for completing my request. I'm not sure if you're aware, but I can't save any translations to this page. When I'm trying to submit message on Special:Translate, all I see is "This namespace is reserved for content page translations. The page you are trying to edit does not seem to correspond any page marked for translation." error message. Could you look into this and help?

Thanks again and sorry, Rail01 (talk) 16:29, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

To which language are you trying to translate? I added some translations for Dutch (Extension:PortableInfobox/nl), but can't reproduce your error. Also: Does this happen with a specific translation unit?

Rail01 (talkcontribs)

Everything seems fine since your edit. I'm not sure what caused that but now I can translate page (po Polish).

I did mark the page for translation after the image was added, maybe that's all that was necessary for the translate extension to start working again.

Some of the translate admins put the additional tags in, some take them out. I've translated a lot, and my impression is that smaller text fragments is easier to translate, and especially section headers and other markup should NOT be part of unrelated text. In short; what you have done here is wrong. I'm going to leave it as this, but I believe it creates a mess. Jeblad (talk) 15:17, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

My experience is that the translate extension will pick out individual blocks by itself. Only if smaller text fragments are explicitly needed, then one would add additional tags.

Looking at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Special:PageTranslation&target=Extension%3AExpect&do=mark, with my version, all individual sentences are separate translation units. Each header is also a separate translation unit. There would be no difference between the previous version and mine.

Of course, since this is your extension, and by extension (no pun intended) your extension page, feel free to make adjustments where you see fit; I'll gladly mark it for translation when finished.
