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.

See also translatewiki.net news page.

  • 2021-02-11: Behavior of statistics has changed:
    • Translated optional are counted in both total and translated (previously they were not)
    • All language & message group statistics were refreshed to apply this change and correct any statistics that were outdated
  • 2021-02-03: Behavior of translation exports has changed:
    • Languages under export threshold are now updated if they have already been exported earlier.
    • Languages under removal threshold will be deleted. By default it is 0%, meaning that files with no non-outdated translations will be deleted. The removal threshold can be configured per project in the same way as export threshold.
