Bicolano Interface Translation at BetaWiki[edit]

1465 messages have been translated out of a total of 1792.

This means that 327 are not yet translated.

However, 330+ of those messages do not need translation before final approval, therefore only 0 messages remain to be translated. --Jose77 20:11, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Final localization[edit]

Thank you very much for your translation efforts. Some final variables not found on BetaWiki need to be translated, and then the localization files will be exported into the MediaWiki codebase. Please translate the following table; if you are uncertain how to translate a variable, try looking at how it is translated in other non-English wikis, or just ask below. —{admin} Pathoschild 14:45:00, 06 October 2007 (UTC) 14:45, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi - I've now translated the remaining variables. --Steven*fung 02:06, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

If I'm correct, the word "media" in this case should be singular, not plural. --Sky Harbor 02:34, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
Normally so. —{admin} Pathoschild 05:17:08, 07 October 2007 (UTC)
The translation provided by Steven is "media" used as plural, not "media" as in "medium" (singular). Sadly, I'm not a Bikol speaker, so I can't correct the translation. --Sky Harbor 09:34, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

OK, I've now amended the translation to singular. --Steven*fung 13:03, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Okay, that's better. I guess the launch of the Bikol Wikipedia is all set. --Sky Harbor 14:56, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

I quit. --Filipinayzd 21:06, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Quit what? --Sky Harbor 11:16, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Translating and creating articles --Filipinayzd 8 October 2007 (UTC)
That's uncalled for. A healthy, living, vibrant Bikol Wikipedia helps hasten the cause to make the actual thing. I wouldn't want the Bikol Wikipedia to suffer fates similar to that of (the slow-moving) Kinaray-a or Hiligaynon tests, or even worse, the Tagalog Wikinews test, which has no contributors other than myself. --Sky Harbor 13:14, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Thank you. The request looks perfect, but some Bikol contacts will verify the content to ensure it is quality Bikol. I'll push it through the approval process; this should ideally take less than two weeks before creation (to coordinate the subcommittee, the board of trustees, developers, and third-party contacts). —{admin} Pathoschild 16:03:54, 08 October 2007 (UTC)

Therefore does that mean Bikol Wikipedia will be created before 22 October? --Jose77 21:26, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
I wish. --Filipinayzd 19 October 2007 (UTC)
See the subcommittee discussion for the current status. —{admin} Pathoschild 15:30:25, 19 October 2007 (UTC)
