Hello, Houston. We had a problem. I translated ~500 core messages. Yesterday I've got message "Language code sjn is not valid.". What happened?
Calad-ne-dúath (​talk​)​07:12, 27 August 2021
Hi Calad-ne-dúath,
The language code: Sjn is actually not supported by translatewiki. We recently fixed a long standing bug where translators were allowed to translate to unsupported & invalid language codes. While sjn is valid, it is not supported by translatewiki.
I'm informing one of our staff who will review if support for this can be added to translatewiki.
Regards,
Parent

Hey, I hope you haven't forgotten about my problem. I would like to fill out the application required to add a new language section on Wikipedia in Sindarin (sjn). I have previously translated 500 core posts and hope to continue translating in the future.

Ban-Bali numeral
How to convert Arabic numbers 0-9 to Balinese script numbers ᭐-᭙ ?

Thanks
Chinamoonroll (​talk​)​01:55, 30 September 2021
Hi, as far as I'm aware this is not possible with standard MediaWiki functions. However, it would be rather easy to create a Lua module for that on the Balinese Wikipedia – do you want any help with that?

Closed for translation
Why can't a new translation be translated? Why was the ban imposed? I just noticed that this is the user's own page, but if it's forbidden to translate, why was it added to this translation category?
DDPAT (​talk​)​21:39, 15 October 2021
I started it. It's just an experiment.
I hope to make this page translatable to all languages some time soon, but please ignore that page for now. I'd say that it's a bug that it appears when Ukrainian is the target language.

Language request for Ainu (ain)
Hello. I would like to request to add support and translation for Ainu language as the following.

Do you actually know this language?
Parent
Amir E. Aharoni (​talk​)​12:03, 3 October 2021
Although I am not a native speaker of Ainu, I have been studying and investigating this language for several years. Thus I think I can master this language well.
Parent
ChoiChong (​talk​)​13:21, 4 October 2021
Can you please make some contributions to the Incubator first? On translatewiki, contributions from non-native speakers are hard to verify, especially when it comes to languages that are small and severely endangered, like Ainu. Thanks for understanding.
Parent

Request for adding/enabling new language: ISO 639-3 sje (bidumsámegiella, Pite Saami)
Edited by author.
Last edit: 09:35, 23 August 2021
As a language worker for Pite Saami, one of the editors of the Pite Saami incubator project and the main editor of the Pite Saami dictionary app BidumBágo​[1]​, I would like to request that the language ISO 639-3 sje, bidumsámegiella be opened for editing. There is an official orthography as of August 2019; the script is Latin with a few diacritic marks (á, ä, ö) and the special letters ŋ, đ, ŧ (as well as æ and ø being used as variants of the official ä and ö. I am going to translate into the language​, and we are two people for now working on the Incubator project. Thank you in advance!

Thank you very much! :-) Translating to Pite Sami comes up as a choice now. However, I still get the message posted as a screen capture in my OP when trying to translate some of the messages. Any way to find out why that's happening? (This doesn't seem to be a problem now.)

Parent
Olve Utne (​talk​)​17:40, 29 September 2021
TL;DR: Don't worry, it's good! :)
You've been translating very quickly and this language has passed the threshold of 13% of translated messages (see Translating:MediaWiki​). It is now officially exported from translatewiki to the MediaWiki source code repository. Therefore, it no longer needs to be listed separately in translatewiki's local LanguageSettings.php file, and it takes the configuration from the global language configuration file in core MediaWiki.
Parent
Amir E. Aharoni (​talk​)​10:16, 30 September 2021
Aaaah.... :-D Thank you for your help! It feels so good that things are on track!

Switching the fallback language of the Chavacano Wikipedia
Is there a possibility that the fallback language of the Chavacano Wikipedia be switched to English? (I note that a previous request had been made in 2009: https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Fallback_language_for_cbk-zam.wikipedia.org​.) Though a Spanish creole, most speakers of Chavacano cannot understand Spanish (like most people in the Philippines), hence, many messages that have not been translated would be incomprehensible for those who speak Chavacano and may discourage people from editing. This Wikipedia is largely inactive.
WikiEditor50 (​talk​)​16:21, 25 September 2021
Yes, I can do it.
However, I'd love to use this opportunity to also add namespace translations, because it's done in the same file. It's very simple! Read the "Translating namespace names" section on this page: Translating:MediaWiki#Translating namespace names. I only need translations for the words in the "Namespace name" column in the first table (but please read the explanations in the "Description" column before translating to make sure you understand them correctly).
Thanks :)
Parent
Amir E. Aharoni (​talk​)​14:51, 26 September 2021
Thank you. I admit I am not a native speaker, though I can mostly understand the language.
The following translations are those that I believe are appropriate:
Media - Media Special - Especial MediaWiki - MediaWiki Template - Plantilla Help - Ayuda Category - Categoria
The rest I am not entirely certain as I am not a native speaker.
Is it still possible to switch?
Parent
WikiEditor50 (​talk​)​15:01, 29 September 2021
It's possible, but can you please involve native speakers? Configuration changes of this kind are a major thing, especially for a language that already has a Wikipedia with an active community of editors. They may be difficult to undo if someone doesn't like it. For example, can you start a discussion about this on a community discussion page in the Chavacano Wikipedia and get some responses? Thanks for understanding :)

Ter Sami (sjt) portal
I accidentally created the portal for Ter Sami and saw afterwards that the language isn't supported by the software, which I assumed it did due there being an Incubator version for the language. Anyway, should the portal now be deleted? I maybe should clarify that I don't speak the language at all.
Sabelöga (​talk​)​01:12, 29 September 2021
Thanks for asking. I deleted it. It's somewhat conceivable that somebody who knows this language will contribute content in it, but the language is extremely tiny so it's not very likely. Even the Incubator doesn't really exist. I'm happy to recreate it if anyone makes a serious request.

Ajeje Brazorf (​talk​)​08:09, 23 September 2021
But Latin is the main script for Fiji Hindi (at least in the Wikimedia world; I'm not sure about books or other websites).
But Japanese is not normally written in Latin, except in textbooks. The MediaWiki UI is usually not used as a textbook.
Parent
Amir E. Aharoni (​talk​)​15:55, 23 September 2021
Read this.
Parent
Ajeje Brazorf (​talk​)​17:07, 25 September 2021
I read it and it's interesting, but either I missed something or it doesn't answer my question. Many languages have standardized ways for Latin transliteration, and they are indeed used in textbooks, train stations signs, and some other places where it's useful for people who don't know the language. But is the user interface of a website such a place? I don't think so. Lots of people learn Russian, Chinese, and Korean, but there is no MediaWiki localization in ru-latn, zh-latn (Pinyin), or ko-latn.

Unnecessary plural parameter in BlueSpice
What's the best way to report a bug in BlueSpice or to send them a patch?
The message MediaWiki:Notification-bs-pageassignments-user-group-add-summary/en has {{PLURAL:$5|$4|$4}}. The second instance of $4 is totally unnecessary in English or any other language. In fact, this whole PLURAL clause can probably be removed from English.

Hi. The wiktionary in lombard is on the way to approval but a discussion about the names of namespaces has been raised (see https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages/Wiktionary_Lombard​). Is it possible to change the names of the namespaces or add aliases (​https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wikimedia/mediawiki/master/languages/messages/MessagesLmo.php​) by using traslatewiki?
