Related Peeragogy Educational grant proposal[edit]

Dear Wikipedia Educators: We're advancing an Individual Engagement Grant here. If this is something you and your students might like to be involved with, please add an endorsement. Comments or questions in advance of the September 30th deadline would be most welcome on the proposal's talk page. In particular, our project involves translation work which we hope might be interesting to students.

Mass migration tools approaching conclusion, feast now[edit]

It will be a tough ride to finish the project (if at all possible), but I highly recommend to use Special:PageMigration now: just today, with its help I managed to make almost a thousand edits and migrate several pages including some huge ones. Even in big pages it often works surprisingly well (almost nothing to do manually), while in others it fails spectacularly (but we have some ideas on how to fix it).

With only ten days of coding left, more than ever it's useful if you use the tool on at least one page and comment on the bugs to help us prioritise, or even better report new problems/ideas we've not identified yet. --Nemo 23:45, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

A fine example by MF-Warburg: [1]. --Nemo 08:46, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
It was a great pleasure to use this tool. Billinghurst suggested to convert the page to the Translate extension, so I finally had an opportunity to use this feature. After I understood that Special:PageMigration first wants the page to be already converted to the Translate extension, I found out about the existence of Special:PagePreparation and soon afterwards had 500 edits more \o/. This is really very helpful for converting old pages, I wish it had existed earlier. I will now file some bugs. --MF-W 18:42, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Translation memory slowdown[edit]

Because I see some people wondering about it: if you don't see suggestions from Translate's translation memory where you'd expect them, that's for a known bug which is being worked on by WMF sysadmins. In short, we've been too busy adding translatable pages and translations ;-) and the system became slower than expected. More updates will come in this area.[2] --Nemo 15:45, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your help![edit]

Main Page translation[edit]

I tried to fix the translation for Korean main page, but page only redirected to {{Main Page/ko}}, and there, other template was there, without any translation message. So, where can I translate things in {{Main Page/Code}} (According to {{Main Page/ko}})? — revi^ 15:18, 2 October 2014 (UTC) at the end you will see "Templates used on this page:". Click on it and you can find the templates transcluded onto that page. Look for template titles ending with /ko and you will hopefully find what you're looking for. :P --Glaisher (talk) 15:25, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Found it. I forgot about that - these days I am becoming silly :P — revi^ 15:33, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
