Translation combination boxes[edit]

The following text was copied from Meta:Babel#Translation_combination_boxes. As an active translator, it may be of any interest to you:

Hi, Sabine worked on new boxes for translators. They aim at giving information about translation combination: say, I can translate from English to French, from Italian to Spanish, and so on. It would help us to know who can translate what, in what, to streamline the translation process. The boxes do not provide information about your level (wether you are a professional translator or not, for example); you may write something about this point in your user page (very useful as well). A few boxes are available, be bold and create those you need :) Be aware we use ISO 639-3 codes for languages (fra and not fr, eng and not en, ...).

Please see "Translator in the following language combinations" and pick up templates for your user page!
This message was pasted on several User talk pages of active translators.

Thank you :)

Election translation[edit]

Hi Damian, how are you doing? I checked candidate presentations right now and found Spanish translation is not yet complete. I think we are better to aim fairness in all times, and specially in this case: all voters can read all presentation in a same condition. Just as in French or Japanese.

Presentation in Spanish: Election_candidates_2006/Es

Zuirdj recommend you as his successor of translation coordinator of Spanish, so I came here to talk with you. Could you please cheer up Spanish editors to finish this works? Please use translators-l to deal with things, if you may want. Cheers, --Aphaia 07:46, 6 September 2006 (UTC)[reply]

P.S. and also good luck to your IRC problems ...

Thank you Damian[edit]

Traducciones a castellano[edit]

Hola, estoy traduciendo los documentos de creación de los capítulos (para la creación del capítulo de Wikimedia España) pero tengo muchos problemas para entender el proceso de creación de las páginas traducidas. Algunas páginas tienen a la derecha el estado de traducción de la página en los distintos idiomas, cosa que no consigo hacer en las páginas nuevas en castellano, otras páginas en inglés tienen en la parte superior los idiomas en los que se encuentra esa página, esto tampoco lo sé hacer con las páginas en inglés que quiero traducir, cuando copio la plantilla de multilingual aparece la plantilla en rojo...

¿Podrías explicarme un poco cómo se realiza el proceso de traducción de estas páginas y cómo se ponen los enlaces a los distintos idiomas en las páginas?. ¿Hay que hacer alguna solicitud previa en algún sitio o crear alguna plantilla especial?. Me he cansado de mirar la documentación y las ayudas y no he conseguido entender nada, parece que está todo un poco liado...

Muchas gracias!. --Elisardojm 09:03, 10 October 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Si, ya estoy terminando la traducción de esa página en mi pc, cuando la tenga revisada la pasaré a ese documento. Lo que te preguntaba es, por ejemplo, esta página está en la categoría de traducciones a es, y supongo que por eso aparece en ella una caja lateral (Translation status) con el estado de la traducción en un montón de idiomas... ¿Todas las páginas a traducir deben seguir este proceso?, ¿como se inicia o dónde se activa?.

Por otra parte hay paginas como ésta que en la parte superior tiene una lista con las versiones disponibles en distintos idiomas, al mirar el código veo que tiene la plantilla {{Requirements for future chapters-langs}}..., ah!, acabo de darme cuenta de cómo se hace esto..., hay que crear la plantilla con el nombre del documento..., ok, lo haré así.

Ahora sólo tengo la duda del primer párrafo, para realizar la traducción de una página, ¿hay que realizar todo el proceso de estados de la traducción tal y como se generan en la categoría Translation request?.

Perdón por el rollo pero es que me estaba liando de mala manera...

Saludos.--Elisardojm 14:10, 10 October 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Ya está traducida, si quieres que te eche una mano con alguna otra avísame. Intentaré traducir alguna otra página relacionada con los capítulos.--Elisardojm 08:50, 16 October 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Wikimedia Bolivia[edit]

Hola Damian, te mando un abrazo revolucionario desde la hermana república bolivariana que lleva el nombre del libertador

Desde estos lares apreciaremos la colaboración que puedas brindarnos para consolidadr Wikimedia Bolivia, por ahora somos pocos pero locos.

Mi email es, he preparado una presentación respecto a que és la fundación Wikimedia, su misión, visión, etc. tal vez el material podría servir para otros capítulos que estan en etapa de formación, como spam al menos.

P.D. El saludo revolucionario es sólo un poco de humor. ;) --Jduranboger 01:04, 13 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Wikimedia Macedonia[edit]

Hi Damian. I'm member of the Initiative Board of Wikimedia Macedonia, and I want to ask you about the news of the approval of our organization. Few weeks ago, I sent an e-mail to ChapCom in which I presented the news about our local chapter. I received the information about the meeting of the Committee at Wikimania 2009, and the potential approvals for Wikimedia Macedonia, and Wikimedia Finland. The Wikimania ended, but there aren't informations about the meeting of the Committee, and we didn't receive an e-mail yet. Nowadays, I'm active on Meta, and you can write some news here. You can also contact me, by sending an e-mail on tha address: I hope that our cooperation will carry on. Best regards. Salute.--Kiril Simeonovski 15:05, 1 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Wikimania 2013 Bidding[edit]

Dear editor,

You are getting this message because you have edited a Wikimania bidding page for 2013.

Many have said that the bidding needs to be brought forward to give teams longer to organise the conference, to enable it to be run more professionally and smoother and to give teams more time to arrange things like sponsorship which can take significant amounts of time. This year an active effort is being made to bring the start of official bidding to before the fundraiser (around September/October, to have a longer bidding period that will run till the end of January and a decision made by the end of February.

Although this clashes with the fundraiser, the significantly longer bidding period is to give those teams from chapters involved in the fundraiser more time. It should hopefully allow teams to create better and more detailed bids. Going forward the idea would be that eventually the bidding would occur entirely before the fundraiser. I though it best to not jump immediately to this to not catch teams off guard.

Just to recap: Bidding will start in September/October and not in January

Any thoughts and comments on this would be greatly appreciated.
