Hello, Johan (WMF). Sorry, but the last message looks wierd. Maybe you had some copy paste accident? IKhitron (talk) 09:05, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

It was an unnecessarily complicated structure and definitely not the right way to write Tech News. Thanks for pointing it out. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 11:18, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, Johan (WMF), it's much better. I can understand the sence now. But if you want a simplyfied English, it isn't, I think. The first sentence does not explain when do you have the choice. In the second one, the subject is "How", not a noun. For me, it's a very high language. Definetely more than the 23:29 version. IKhitron (talk) 11:27, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
Better now?
(My worry about the earlier version you refer to was a) that some editors wouldn't understand what print styles are and b) that "This will change how articles are printed" was not obviously about the look, but could mean the process you go through. You're more technically knowledgable than most people, so I think this is more obvious to you.) /Johan (WMF) (talk) 11:39, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
(-: Sure, I didn't say it was good, just better. And now it's perfect, thank you. IKhitron (talk) 17:40, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

Problems with translation memory[edit]

Unfortunately something happened to the translation memory. This week I'm not getting suggestions from the translation memory like earlier. Only for short sentences, like "Tech/News/2017/40" and "Recent changes" I get results. For longer sentences it just says "loading..." and then finishes loading.

I'm sure this problem is not related to tech news, and should be posted somewhere else, but I don't know a better place now.

Anyone else noticed that? Stryn (talk) 11:03, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

I've created a very basic Phab task: phab:T177727. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 22:47, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
This has now been fixed. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 14:07, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
