Localization of Special:Version
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Please localize Special:Version. Currently the page displays the text in English only in all Wikipedias. The text can be written in a new system message and admins of every Wikipedia can translate it. I am not sure whether this will alter any legal terms.

Version: 1.11.x
Severity: enhancement

No point in doing this.

I think it is worse to localize this page provided that important information, at least licence and authors names, are undeletable by translators.

Done with r23471 for the special page itself.

TODO: Localization of extension credit descriptions. But I have an idea...

I reverted that as it was so fragile it broke extension info formatting.

Done with r30349.

Extension descriptions can be localized by adding the new keyword 'descriptionmsg' to $wgExtensionCredits with a message name.
See the Cite extension as example.
