Translate[edit]

Wikimedia's software is translated to hundreds of languages using the Translate extension for MediaWiki. In addition, it is used to translate help pages, newsletters, policies, announcements, banners, etc. It is installed on Wikimedia special projects, translatewiki.net and many other sites. Translate is part of MLEB. Improvements made in the last month include:

  • Drop non-array based configuration support for Insertables (Gerrit change 644464)
  • Fix: "ULS Language Selector search textbox is not accessible from the Translate Group Selector" (task T94548)
  • Stop hiding page heading on pages other than Special:Translate (Gerrit change 644514)

And a bunch of other behind-the-scenes improvements. Please follow this link to see a full list of patches submitted to the extension during this month.

Usage data[edit]

  • Translatable pages: Meta 6180 (+64); MediaWiki.org 5423 (+23); Commons 1486 (+9) [1][2][3]
  • Translate extension is installed on 405 (+26) wikis [1].

MediaWiki Language Extension Bundle[edit]

The MediaWiki language extension bundle (MLEB) provides an easy way to bring ultimate language support to your MediaWiki. The bundle is a collection of a selected few MediaWiki extensions needed by any wiki which desires to be multilingual.

There will be an MLEB release this month. We will update this space once it is available.

Previous release was: MLEB 2020.10. Please see the release notes for a list of changes.

MediaWiki core internationalization[edit]

Changes to translations and equivalent localisation data (magic words, namespace names) are not included in this list. The volunteer translators are updating translations every day to keep up with changes.
