Gereon K.[edit]

I hereby kindly request the user rights for translation admin at Meta. As User:Gereon Kalkuhl (WMF) from March to September 2017 I made more than 3,000 translations. I started to translate pages of User Groups into German on Meta. I read the documentation of the tool and the relevant pages for Meta translation. Instead of having to apply to a translation admin every time I would like to mark pages for translation myself. I feel fit enough to do that. Thank you very much in advance, --Gereon K.

Question Question: Could you tag some page (or previously untranslatable part of translatable page) for translation following mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation example and mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation administration and local Meta guidelines so that we see you understand how it works well? --Base (talk) 17:49, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
All installation attempts of the software failed on my systems, so I retract my request for adminship. Sorry to take your time. --Gereon K. (talk) 18:34, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
OMG :). I see that you have created User:Gereon K./LocalSettings.php. Are you trying to follow mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Installation? The extension is already installed here (see the actual configuration file for Wikimedia wikis). You will have the ability to actually make pages translatable only when you have the flag requested. But what I want you to do is to follow the two pages I have linked just until marking for translation. Thus to put translate, tvar and other tags correctly on a page you want to make translatable. This is easier to do than to explain, just try to follow the page translation example page. --Base (talk) 18:42, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
Most help pages asked me to install a software or talked about a software that must be installed. I marked User:Gereon K./Writing Weeks for translation now. --Gereon K. (talk) 11:26, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
