Bridge interface translations: datatype names in italic and untranslated
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

This is a request coming from Catalan Wikipedia, testing the first version of the Bridge.

Currently, the translation of the Bridge interface (done via Translatewiki) includes translation of the datatype names (string, time, etc.). Catalan Wikipedia would like these variables to stay in English and in italic.

Questions:

  • where should this happen (manually in Translatewiki, or somewhere in the code)?
  • how can we make sure that CAWP can have the variables in italic, while other Wikipedias may prefer them without this formatting, and/or translated in their local language?
