Translatable Title[edit]

@Quiddity (WMF): IMO there is no need to make the title of TechNews translatable - and there is already translatable section name in the recent update. Stang 20:04, 29 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Stang Good point. I've removed it for this week's edition. I'll try to remember (and have documented) to un-select the checkbox (which is "on" by default) in future weeks. Thanks. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 20:10, 29 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Stang and Quiddity (WMF): I think there is need to make it translatable. It’s unfortunate that we need to translate title twice, but users looking at the page should see an as-localized-as-possible interface, which includes the <h1> at the top (there’s a link to the page in the footer, so we can reasonably assume that not only translators look at the page directly instead of just looking at the delivered message). —Tacsipacsi (talk) 08:33, 3 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Also a good point! Hmmm. I guess the best option, for now, is to re-enable it. It's the least important part to translate, but then the option is available if a translator wants to do so.
I don't think there's any way to (easily) setup a recurring QQQ message to note that it's not required, so that setup will have to do, for now. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 03:45, 4 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
