Translation instructions
  • For pages marked "Missing" or "In progress", click the page title and start translating. When you are done, click "edit status" and change the status to proofreading.
  • For pages marked "Needs updating", compare the page to the source page and update the translation accordingly. When you are done, click "edit status" and change the status to proofreading.
  • It is important to have someone else proofread the translated page! If you have proofread a page and it is ready for publication, click "edit status" and change that page's status to ready.
  • If you are changing something that has already been published, change its status back to ready for it to be published again.

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is the base template for translation projects. It is meant to be simpler to use for translators than the Translation2 template is.

(This documentation page is not done, it will be completed later.)

Usage

Usage

The template uses a system of subtemplates for projects and languages to give the translators and easy overview of the pages that need to be translated into their language.

Create a new translation project

To create a new translation project, create a subtemplate of this one containing the following parameters:

{{Translate-status/core
| project = <project name>
| language = {{{language|en}}}

| page1 = ''<Page name 1>''
| page2 = ''<Page name 2>''
| page3 = ''<Page name 3>''
...
| page20 = ''<Page name 20>''

| status1 = {{{<Page name 1>|}}}
| status2 = {{{<Page name 2>|}}}
| status3 = {{{<Page name 3>|}}}
...
| status20 = {{{<Page name 20>|}}}
}}

Example

{{Translate-status/core
| project = Fundraising 2011
| language = {{{language|en}}}

| page1 = Core messages
| page2 = Jimmy Appeal 001

| status1 = {{{Core messages|}}}
| status2 = {{{Jimmy Appeal 001|}}}
}}

| <Page name 1>  =
