Translate namespace names into Gilaki.
Hi @Varg. This does not sound like something is wrong in the code of MediaWiki (a so-called "bug"), but instead like a support request (how to change settings, questions how to do something, etc.). As Wikimedia Phabricator/Maniphest is only for specific reports and enhancement requests, please use the MediaWiki Support Desk for support requests, or in this case the #mediawiki-i18n IRC channel or mediawiki-i18n. Thanks!
For future reference, please see https://mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_report_a_bug
I am so confused! How could I translate namespaces? How, where and what should I do? I there a simple help ouranswer?
To translate namespaces, file a new task here on Phabricator.
Also please tell us where you read about AdvancedTranslate. It has not been available for a couple of years.
I had no idea what this task was about as it was so short and without any pointers to some context, so my reference to MediaWiki Support Desk might now turn out to not be the best place either. :-/
My ask was about translating in Wikipedia.
I am admin in GilakiWikipedia and I am translaing its menus from english into gilaki in Translatewiki.
I found out that I cant translate namespaces (Talk, File, Help, Template, User, etc) into Gilaki. I have not access to those.
So, I want to know how I could translate these namespaces?
This was my question. :)
Sorry for the confusion! Andre was not aware that Phabricator is indeed the right place to request translation of namespaces.
Please provide translations of the following namespace names:
https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Translating:MediaWiki#Translating_namespace_names seems to have relevant info for those that want to write a patch. Maybe https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Localisation#Namespaces needs some updates how to request that.
@TTO: https://translatewiki.net/wiki/FAQ#Aren_t_localized_namespace_names_part_of_interface_translation?_%28can_t_these_be_used_in_translated_messages?%29 mentions "Special:AdvancedTranslate".
Here you are:
User talk:کارگيرˇ گب
File talk:فاىلˇ گب
MediaWiki talk:مدياويکي گب
Template talk:قالبˇ گب
Help talk:رانما گب
Category talk:جرگه گب
@Varg: Please check https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/260960/1/languages/messages/MessagesGlk.php for mistakes.
For NS_PROJECT_TALK, the $1 is replaced with the name of the project (for example, ويکيپديا).
Thnaks a lot. But I think there is a mistake or I did not underestan what is it. in this row:
NS_PROJECT_TALK => 'مدي_$1',
What is its english translate? (To find out if its Gilaki is true)
That's the project talk namespace. For example, "Wikipedia talk", "Wiktionary talk", "Wikisource talk" etc. The $1 is replaced by the site name. So the NS_PROJECT_TALK string should be the translation of "$1 talk", where the "$1" will be replaced by MediaWiki with the name of a wiki project (Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikisource, etc.)
