Cite web template adaptation from English to Welsh does not adapt parameters
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

As reported at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:T6dba21w636sxi78

There is a a recent change in the last week or so on the Welsh Wikipedia where translating text using Yandex now translates some of the citation templates e.g. "Cite web" becomes "Dyf gwe", but it doesn't translate the parameters. This breaks stuff on translating because the Welsh template parameters don't match the English one (although they two templates are sitelinked). In Welsh, we have a separate "Cite web" template which uses English parameters. Is there a way to stop translating these template names? There are other examples e.g Cite journal. Thanks, diolch.
