Names and descriptions for Lexeme, Form and Sense datatypes on Special:ListDatatypes
Closed, ResolvedPublic3 Story Points

Description

Special:ListDatatypes (https://wikidata.org/w/index.php/Special:ListDatatypes) is missing the English messages for the name and the description of the Lexeme, Form and Sense datatype. They should be added. The texts are:

  • Lexeme: Link to lexemes at the project. When a value is entered, the project's "Lexeme" namespace will be searched for matching lexemes.
  • Form: Link to forms at the project. When a value is entered, the project's "Lexeme" namespace will be searched for matching forms.
  • Sense: Link to senses at the project. When a value is entered, the project's "Lexeme" namespace will be searched for matching senses.

@Addshore: native speaker check: Should it be "on the project" or "at the project" in the messages? If it is "on the project" then we also need to adjust the messages for the item and property datatypes.

Ideally: make the message key generation in wikibase more generic to allow for extension-specific prefix, then put messages into the lexeme extension.

on the project definitely sounds better to me
