May we make some general page about transliteration with links to specific languages? General principles from Chinese transliteration should go into general page... --Millosh 12:41, 12 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Serbian[edit]

For the main page being translated, the alphabetical index is not translated well. Is there any way we can solve the problem? (e.g. tranlation in block, or can we use the language block function?) -- Tomchiukc 17:41, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

Possible to use conversion in an English Wikibook?[edit]

We have a debate in the Chinese Wikibook over whether we should have a split or combined textbook. One side says it was too confusing/intimidating/cluttered to have both scripts in addition to pinyin and the English translation. The other side says it will be too hard to keep the two versions in sync now that it's split. To an extent, they have, but it will be a growing problem as the book expands.

Is it possible to set it up so that changes in a en Wikibook are carried over, just like in the zh Wikipedia? I know normally no English portal gets the extra conversion tabs, but could we insert an exception? It would be really great if we could, and save some headaches for both contributors and students.

Where is the documentation how to use this ?[edit]

And the LanguageConverter.php in MediaWiki?

Different conversions in different Chinese Wiki sites[edit]

Chinese Wikipedia needs conversions of regional compounds. Chinese Wiktionary may need it, but Chinese Wikisource converts traditional and simplified characters only without converting compounds for regional variations. There is now an argument at Chinese Wikipedia to add Singaporean Chinese tab at w:zh:Wikipedia:馬新簡體標籤顯示民意調查.--Jusjih 15:04, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Note that the Malasia-Singaporean variation already exists. The discussion is primarily about whether to add the tab for the convenience of readers who have not registered. Alongside there is a more fundamental discussion: how to seperate the character conversion from the phrase conversion.--Hillgentleman| 22:04, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
    • Yes, but there are now arguments that the top becomes too crowded with too many tabs even though I see no major problem.--Jusjih 14:58, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Phonetic version[edit]

Is there any project to allow conversion into phonetic (pinyin). Then, conversion table between phonetics are available for further possibilities. Yug (talk) 21:30, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Add a "how to" section?[edit]

Is it possible to add a section telling individual users how they can access the automatic conversions? In other words, right now when I view Chinese-language Wikipedia pages, I am seeing a mix of simplified and traditional characters, based presumably on how they were originally inputted. I want to see the pages rendered in traditional characters using the automatic conversion that is described in this article. What settings do I need to adjust to be able to achieve that? I honestly don't know and I can't figure it out by reading this page. The Interloafer (talk) 18:21, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
