Could someone mark the changes on those pages for translation please? It seems clear that none of the regular tadmins looking at pending changes (myself included) are willing to do so for whatever reason. * Pppery * it has begun 16:24, 19 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I marked Movement Strategy and Governance/Newsletter/5, WikiIndaba conference 2021/Scholarships and Wikimedia Central and Eastern Europe for translation. WikiForHumanRights/Participate explicitly says that it's under construction; I'm not sure we should encourage translations of it right now. A couple of the others I wasn't comfortable marking for translation as I didn't understand the source language well enough. /Julle (talk) 00:04, 20 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Oldest pages proposed for translation[edit]

Since my previous listing of the oldest pages with pending changes was helpful at bringing attention to them, let's try a list of the oldest pages proposed for translation. Unlike before, user pages and template sandboxes are not included on this list.

  1. Serbo-Croatian Wikipedia, since April 29, 2021 (is tagged {{draft}})
  2. Training modules/wikidata/library and a bunch of other Wikidata-related training modules pages, since August 2021
  3. Template:WikimediaNEMTable/i18n, since November 9, 2021
  4. Movement Charter/Drafting Committee/Ideas, since November 27, 2021 (is tagged {{draft}})
  5. Movement Strategy/Updates/2021/49, since November 30, 2021 (is tagged {{draft}})
  6. Movement Strategy/Updates/init, since November 30, 2021 (is tagged {{draft}})
  7. Grants:Project/Rapid/Oral citation in Paiwan language, since December 9, 2021
  8. Indic Wikisource Proofreadthon March 2022/Rules, since December 10, 2021 (is tagged {{draft}})
  9. Grants:Project/Rapid/NANöR/Skill Development Needs Assessment For Arabic Wikipedia and Arabic Wikisource, since December 15, 2021
  10. Help:Table, since December 23, 2021
  11. Help:Redirect, since December 31, 2021

It may well be that some of these pages shouldn't be marked for translation (either because they are drafts or because the translate markup was indiscriminately copied from somewhere else), we still shouldn't leave pages sitting around in the backlog for months unattended. * Pppery * it has begun 02:15, 28 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I frequently check “Pages proposed for translation”.
  • I never mark a page with a {{draft}} or {{under construction}} template, to limit useless work.
  • About training modules, I would like first to work on the software behind them because the supported syntax is limited.
  • I have also skipped Help pages because I think we should take time to merge them into, in the same way it has been done for many other help pages.
Note we also have a new issue with grant pages. -- Pols12 (talk) 00:12, 31 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

New list:

  1. Help:Interwiki linking, since January 9
  2. Help:Navigational template, since February 19 (is tagged {{draft}})
  3. Grants:Programs/Wikimedia Alliances Fund/Test-Rapid/Final Report, since March 9
  4. Movement Strategy/Culture of Documentation, since March 15 (is tagged {{draft}})
  5. WikiGap Challenge/Prizes, since March 16 (is tagged {{under construction}})

I am slowly clearing this backlog myself, but if anyone else wants to help out that would be nice. * Pppery * it has begun 19:18, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Help translating Template:Policy-cross-project[edit]

I created Template:Policy-cross-project yesterday, but I am a Chinese user so I only translated in Chinese. Can anyone help translating Template:Policy-cross-project? Choi Chin Long 10:19, 20 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Add latin version to[edit]

Hello, for the native name of Nogai is "Ногайша" used. But many Nogais in Turkey, Romania and other countries use latin alphabet and I will be happy when there is also the latin version: Nogayşa / Ногайша TayfunEt. (talk) 19:03, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Nogai language is not supported on Meta-Wiki. Your request should go on support.
Though, note the configured script for Nogai is Cyrilic, per initial request. Using Latin for self-name would be inconsistent.
A solution could be to add a nog-latn language, but each page should then be translated twice (for each variant). -- Pols12 (talk) 21:22, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
