Problems with text[edit]

Please see [1]. --Nemo 11:12, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Replied there[2], although I still do not understand why you thought this is a fundraising banner. Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 21:23, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
I didn't, I just lacked a central location for the comment. :) --Nemo 07:25, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Updated Macedonian translation[edit]

Hello. I am the Macedonian translator for Meta-wiki and I've found an unsatisfactory translation by a novice and corrected it (corrected version), but don't see it updated in the header notice. Could you implement the new version somehow? Cheers --B. Jankuloski (talk) 22:29, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! I have updated the banner. (Any Meta admin can do so, as described here.) Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 03:43, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Marathi (mr) translation errors[edit]

Hello! The FDC portal/CentralNotice2013-1 notice that is translated into Marathi has some errors. Hence putting forth correct version here. Someone with the rights and right knowledge please do the honours of correcting it.

Line 2 is good. Btw, is this the right place to put forth translations? I wasn't able to find out another venue. Dharmadhyaksha (talk) 17:45, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Done. This page seems to be quite right for comments about translations. If nobody shows up, put {{editprotected}} here. --MF-W 17:55, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
The translations were probably originally submitted on Special:Translate, and then copied into the CentralNotice interface (MediaWiki namespace) by a WMF staff member, User:Tbayer (WMF). I don't know whether or not they are checking for updated translations, so I think this is a great place to request changes (as MF-Warburg said). πr2 (t • c) 18:01, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks to Dharmadhyaksha for the correction, and to MF-Warburg for deploying it. The usual way is to correct the provided translation directly: Follow the "help with translations" link in the banner to FDC portal/CentralNotice2013-1, go to the language version in question (FDC portal/CentralNotice2013-1/mr) and click the Special:Translate link in the sentence on top (the words "translated version" when viewing the page with English as interface language). This is what was done in case of the Macedonian translation that is discussed above, and in several other cases.
To alert the translation admin who set up the page (in this case me), you can set the translation state (top right) to "Needs updating". But to be honest not many people use that feature, so I'm mostly trying to fish translation updates out of recent changes and by watchlisting some subpages. There are software changes planned which should make updating translated CentralNotice banners a bit less cumbersome. Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 18:30, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks all of you. Will use the way Tbayer suggested from next time. Dharmadhyaksha (talk) 06:00, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
