Wikipedia translation of the week: 2020-30[edit]


Hi, careful to prepare for the text translation of a widely used template. When reporting a template for translation, you must then edit all pages where it is included by replacing {{ABC}} with {{TNT|ABC}} or else problems will occur and the translated text will not be displayed. For this reason it is better in these cases to move the text to be translated to a subpage as I did with the Template:Engine (Template:Engine/translatable). --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 19:20, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

@Samuele2002:Hi greetings, thank you so much for the help. I will do as you recommended in my future edits. Thank you for creating the subpage. Thanks a lot. Regards.--Path slopu (talk) 08:57, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

It is not usual to send out translation notification for Tech News. Why did you send it? — regards, Revi 09:58, 31 July 2020 (UTC)
@-revi: Hi greetings, I only tried to increase the language versions. There are many translators of several regional languages who haven't subscribed Translators I. So I thought the notification will help to reach them. If I made a mistake, I'm apologising. I won't do it again, if it was wrong. Thank you. --Path slopu (talk) 10:06, 31 July 2020 (UTC)
It was not to imply you did something wrong: TAs usually don't send out translation notifications (TN) for Tech News (They are advertised on the translators-l mailing list) so I was wondering why it had to be sent as on-wiki talk messages. I think interested parties can get notifications on translators-l mailing list, so I think TN can be skipped (or ask John (WMF) to make a new opt-in for on-wiki talk notifications)? I certainly didn't subscribe to TN to get weekly Tech News alerts. (One-Time nudge is probably fine though) — regards, Revi 10:09, 31 July 2020 (UTC)
Re: this topic, there is further discussion at Talk:Tech/News#Tech_news_notifications. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 20:27, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

On a different topic: In the future, please don't remove the {{tech news draft}} template yourself. That is part of the process that we do on Friday after any final changes have been made (per Tech/News/Manual). Thank you! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 20:27, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

@Quiddity (WMF): Hi, thanks for pointing out my mistake. I apologise, I will not do that in the future. Thank you.--Path slopu (talk) 06:28, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

Invitation to affiliate members to complete a survey about WMF wide Universal Code of Conduct[edit]

Hello; My name is Mervat, and I am helping the Trust and Safety team to reach out to affiliates in order to discuss the Universal Code of Conduct. I am contacting you as you are a member of the Wikimedians for Sustainable Development User Group. If you have received this from other user groups/chapters, you can ignore.

There has been talks about the need for a global set of conduct rules in different communities over time, and finally, Wikimedia Foundation Board announced a Community Culture Statement, enacting new standards to address harassment and promote inclusivity across projects.Since the universal code of conduct that will be a binding minimum set of standards across all Wikimedia projects, will apply to all of us, staff and volunteers alike, all around the globe, and will impact our work as groups, individuals and projects, it’s of great importance that we all participate in expressing our opinions and thoughts about UCoC, its nature, what we think it should cover or include and what it shouldn’t include; how it may develop, drawback or help our groups.   This is the time to talk about it. As you are a valuable contributor to the Wikimedia movement, your voice counts. Before starting to draft the code of conduct, we would like to hear from you; We invite you to devote some minutes to take this survey; your answers will help us create a safer environment for all on Wikimedia:


It’s possible that you are a member of more than one affiliate; hence you may receive this survey more than once, and you may have participated previously in the discussions or filled out a previous survey during the first round of consultations about UCoC which targeted wikipedia/wikimedia communities. We apologize for this; it is really difficult to identify if a wikimedian belongs to multiple groups that work to spread free knowledge. Looking forward to your thoughts and opinions and hoping that you can respond within the next 2 weeks.  If you have any questions about the surveys or difficulties accessing the link, please contact me by email ( will be considered during the drafting process for the UCoC. Thank you for your participation.
