Translating the sidebar...?[edit]

Hei hei! I've been scratching my head around this for a while, but where would I go to edit or add translations for the Meta-Wiki sidebar/menu? EdoAug (talk) 14:25, 2 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @EdoAug, I guess you are asking about the news and other parts that appear on the main page. The news section comes from {{Main Page/WM News}} and other parts include {{Main Page/Requests}}, {{Main Page/Community and communication}} and {{Main Page/Core issues and collaboration}}. You can take a look at these pages. Let me know if I missed anything. ─ The Aafī (talk) 14:56, 2 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hey, @TheAafi! Thank you for these, but I'm talking about the menu that appears below the logo in the slightly older Vector skin (default skin?). EdoAug (talk) 18:09, 2 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ahh I see @EdoAug. Do you refer to the blue links that appear below the logo? These begin with Main page, Wikimedia News, and have links to other sister projects at the end. I believe this is part of the interface and should be translatable through translatewiki. @Pols12 might have some better ideas on this. ─ The Aafī (talk) 08:03, 3 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The sidebar is defined in MediaWiki:sidebar; the strings after the pipes (and the strings in the top-level list items) are the names of the MediaWiki messages used for translation: MediaWiki:navigation, MediaWiki:mainpage-description, MediaWiki:wikimedianews-text etc. Some of these are translatable on Translatewiki, others are local and can be translated only by local admins and interface admins. (If you find a message on Translatewiki, translations done there are likely to be reflected here; if you don’t, then it needs to be translated locally.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 10:50, 3 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not having luck finding the messages on translatewiki, sadly! I will try to search further, but I suppose they'll be left half-translated until further notice. Thank you for the info, though! EdoAug (talk) 11:18, 3 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Your’re not the first one to ask the question, so I have created Meta:Sidebar to provide links to translations. I hope that helps… 🙂 -- Pols12 (talk) 16:37, 3 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is great! Thank you for this! EdoAug (talk) 19:18, 3 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
