New version of Donor Privacy Policy[edit]

Hi! Please explain, why new version of Donor policy was not placed in Meta-wiki for translation by Wikimedia community volunteers? This text may be placed in the Donor Privacy Policy, instead soft-redirect to wmf-wiki. I am ready to perform the translation markup and import current translations from wmf-wiki.--Kaganer (talk)

Hello Kaganer - I'll raise this with the Legal department and ask them to get back to you to explain the situation. :) Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 00:36, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! In my opinion, should be one way for publishing all global policies: source in the wmf-wiki, translations in the Meta-wiki. See also this topic. Maybe User:Jalexander-WMF also connect to this discusion? --Kaganer (talk) 20:45, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
Hello again Kaganer - Legal thought about this and have decided to create a translatable copy on Meta-Wiki. It's now at Donor privacy policy. Thanks! Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 09:13, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
Good news! I've updated the translation markup to make this more comfortable for translators. Maybe also add "backlink" to translatable version, as in the wmf:Privacy policy? --Kaganer (talk) 12:56, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
Small note about document design: "list-style-type: lower-alpha;" is not appropriate for non-latin scripting system (Cyrillic, Japan, Chineze etc.) Maybe you update your internal "writing style guide" for exclude these markup from potentially multilingual texts? --Kaganer (talk) 13:18, 7 February 2017 (UTC)


Hi Joe, I have talk to @Tulsi Bhagat: about the Phabricator ticket. He confirmed me about the 2FA incident. Please proceed to resolve the Phab task. Thanks--Biplab Anand (Talk) 07:37, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Translate overtagging[edit]

FYI [1] is not the recommended way to mark a page for translation. mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page_translation_administration#Markup_examples should help, let us know on the talk page if not. --Nemo 09:50, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the head's up Nemo, will adapt strategies going forward. :) Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 16:38, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
