Special:TrackingCategory has Nynorsk name at bokmål Wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This special page w:no:Spesial:Sporingskategoriar has a Nynorsk name. In Bokmål this should be “Sporingskategorier”, that is “er” and not “ar”.

I'm not sure where the names for special pages are localized. Once upon a time there was a special page for renaming of special pages, but it was so special that it wasn't listed as a special page…

Seems like MessagesNb.php lacks an entry for TrackingCategories that MessagesNn.php has, so I guess it could be a fallback issue. There seems to other entries that needs translations in both directions.

Indeed, TrackingCategory string is missing in languages/messages/MessagesNb.php.
Fallback happens since 49674f0c469f01b3fbb1e904acbc3c7f818d4aa6.
