Content I've added to this translation was produced for the Wikimedia Foundation by TransPerfect. --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 21:34, 5 April 2012 (UTC)Reply


A Russian translation

First, I have to do a shout-out to User:Kaganer for the incredible hard work he's done here. Thank you so much for sticking with it over so long a period of time!

A translation was provided to the Wikimedia Foundation by a professional translator along with a small suite of others; I've supplemented what was here with that content. I hope the community will feel free to double-check and improve that translation. Likewise, if there's any language in that translation that would be useful in polishing earlier text, it is available and compatibly licensed for use in this page. :) --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 21:34, 5 April 2012 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for complete this translation. I made ​​the necessary improvements and proofreading the entire text. Please update .pdf edition based on final version. --Kaganer (talk) 11:08, 6 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
Thank you, Kaganer! The .PDF is specifically for the translation prepared by that company, but it doesn't really matter. What our readers and users will be seeing is the final version produced here. That one is just retained for our records. :) --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 13:08, 6 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
OK. --Kaganer (talk) 13:48, 6 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
Just to make that extra clear, I updated the description of the PDF. :) It says, "A Russian translation of the Terms of Use. These Terms of Use were written in English (U.S.). While we hope that translations of these Terms of Use are accurate, in the event of any differences in meaning between the original English version and a translation, the original English version takes precedence. The Russian translation displayed on pages in Meta of the Wikimedia Foundation wiki or elsewhere may or may not use content from this translation." --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 13:54, 6 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
This "external" translation have a lot of inaccuracies in regard to the terms and concepts used in the Russian translation of the Wikimedia policies. I don't recommend using it "as is" for any purpose.--Kaganer (talk) 14:48, 6 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
That's good to know, Kaganer! Thank you so much for reviewing it. This is why we brought it to the community instead of just assuming that it should be used. --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 14:51, 6 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
