Get translations for #mentor from ambassadors
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Background

The new magic word #mentor will be soon deployed to wikis, allowing users to retrieve raw mentor's name from the database. Just as special pages, magic words can be localized into different languages. The only issue is it is not currently possible to do it via translatewiki, but via a direct commit to the software (same as for special pages).

Requirements

Contact all ambassadors, and ask them whether the magic word #mentor should be localized for their wikis. Upload a commit, providing GrowthExperiments.i18n.magic.php with the translations.

Is there a different way to get the translations rather than by manually adding it? It is not a scaling-proof concept! :)

The aliases originally used to be translated at translatewiki, but can't be done anymore because of T109235: Re-enable Special:AdvancedTranslate on translatewiki.net. We're looking for possible workarounds as part of T250243: Scale: translation of aliases. Any solution we apply to special pages aliases will be applicable to magic word translations as well.

Urbanecm_WMF moved this task from In Progress to QA on the Growth-Team (Current Sprint) board.

All translations for the #mentor magic word for our four pilot wikis are merged into the codebase, and should land together with the feature itself. Moving to QA, as the task's objective was finished.
