What do the dashes mean?[edit]

In the section "Who we are" of this page, the listed specialists are followed by some text in italics, which presumably indicates the areas they're working on. Five of these have dashes in them (eg "Thriving Movement - Talk pages"), which I would think would indicate that one of these two things is a subtopic of the other. However, one of the entries is "Brand Awareness - Desktop Improvements", which sound like separate topics. Do the dashes here mean "and"? If so, this could be expressed more clearly. --Yair rand (talk) 20:01, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

The main page of the message or the page of the language version of the message[edit]

When the design of a message is changed in the local wiki (for example, in a message the text is only in Russian (actually for any language) and a page with it is created in the ruwiki), how is it more correct to do this: create a "mediawiki:message" or "mediawiki:message/ru" page locally? It is not written in detail about this in the mw:Help:System message#Overriding messages on-wiki.

If the local wiki has received a new version of the mediawiki and the messages have changed in it (let's say more seriously, the values of the parameters in the messages have changed), and the old translation has not yet been changed to a new one on translatewiki (but the new original message/en works fine, because it is the first to be changed on translatewiki). Do we need to temporarily create the message page or /subpage locally in the wiki? [1] - [2] vs [3]; or sometimes participants create two at once [4] [5].

If not temporarily, but the page changes in order to be constantly shown changed? Should we overlap all languages with just one language? Or are we obligated to leave messages available for other languages by default instead of one modified message? [6] vs [7]

Is it possible to write more about this in the help? Sunpriat (talk) 07:17, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

Thanks @Sunpriat for the question. @Sthottingal-WMF, @UOzurumba (WMF), do you as Language engineering members could help? SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 17:22, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
Hello Sunpriat,
Thank you for your question, I and some people in the WMF language team have tried to understand your question and it is not clear the problem you are having and what your question is about.
We will appreciate it if you can give more context and explain your problems further in the relevant discussion page, maybe in Help:System message talk page.
