Translatable pages[edit]

Thanks for working on this! Few things in case you're not working on them already:

  • you have to exclude from translate tags untranslatable things like {{Anchor|register}} or long URLs,
  • template/category calls etc. have to be done as in [1],
  • consider splitting long paragraphs/translation units like the one in the section "How to hide your email address".

Marked, please import old translations now. :) --Nemo 18:16, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Machine translations[edit]

Hi MegaAlex. I've seen you translating pages from English into at least five other languages and most of them look like machine translations (e.g. Translations:Help:Magic_words/251/diq, just one of many). I don't think MediaWiki.org uses the Translation extension to display machine translations which are mostly worse than my English. Moreover we might get some copyright trouble (depending on the translation machine of course). Tim (SVG) 21:01, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Hello Tim! The translation that you are referring to was imported from an older version of Help:Magic words/diq - Magic words/diq due to the fact that the page was migrated to Extension:Translate. --MegaAlex 21:17, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

So you are transferring translations to migrate them to Translate extension? That sounds very dedicated of you when I consider that you've already transferred over 2,000 translations. Great work! Tim (SVG) 21:48, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! I am actually a GCI student and my current task is to prepare pages for migration and import the existing translations. -- MegaAlex 21:55, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

That's quite helpful. You are welcome! Tim (SVG) 22:53, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Re: Google Code-in 2013[edit]

And it was a pleasure to have a committed participant like you! Speaking of which, I'd like you to become a translation administrator on this wiki now (I basically had nothing more to do when checking your last prepared pages): can I candidate you? --Nemo 22:18, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

If you think that I have the needed experience to be a translation administrator feel free to do so. I'd be glad to help! MegaAlex 19:37, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
