Japanese Thank You Email Edit
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hello,

There has been an update that can be done to a link present in the "Thank You" email in Japanese. It is in the text pertaining to the Matching Gift in the footer after the signature :

"ジミー・ウェールズ
ウィキペディア創設者

多くの雇用主の方が、寛大にも、従業員の寄付額に連動する寄付をしてくださっています。皆さまの雇用主が コーポレートマッチングギフト制度に参画されているかご確認ください。"

The link is on the following characters: コーポレートマッチングギフト制度 and used to direct to the English page. It is now available in Japanese: https://donate.wikimedia.org/wiki/Matching_Gifts/ja

Can you please update accordingly to the Japanese link mentioned above?

Thank you in advance,

This is about emails sent out; not about the website donate.wikimedia.org itself

@CDenes_WMF @TSkaff @Pcoombe FYI since this pertains to TY emails and donate wiki. I think this should geolocate and thus work properly in Japan. But if you want us to use this exact url for this email, fr-tech can make the update.

@TomaszGorski Has a japanese donor mentioned an issue? How was this tested?

@DStrine Those support pages don't geolocate, and this is about language not country. We need to use that URL for them to get the Japanese page.

[wikimedia/fundraising/crm@master] Add ja to matching gifts url in Japanese thank you

Just to reply to David's question "Has a japanese donor mentioned an issue? How was this tested?"

This has been mentioned during the proofreading of the Thank You email in Japanese as well as during the user testing feedback gathered by Seilo. That support page did not exist in Japanese before and exists now in Japanese, it was added recently, hence the request to change the URL link in the Thank You email.

Hello everyone,

Adding to this phabtask another change as it is also related to the Ja-JP Thank You emails.

This one is specific to the Thank You email for recurring/monthly donations in Japanese, and concerns the first sentence of the first paragraph that looks like this now:
"ウィキペディアを支援するために [amount] の継続ご寄付をしてくださったあなたに心から感謝しています。この場を借りて、より良い世界の実現に向けられたあなたの寛大さと並外れた意欲に感謝いたします"

The first sentence should be changed to "ウィキペディアを支援するために月額 [amount] の定期寄付をしてくださったあなたに心から感謝しています。"

Let me know if more details/context are needed. Many thanks in advance,

I have split out this comment into a new task: T283748

This is a copy suggestion and fr-tech either needs the new copy submitted by the ty email owners or direction from advancement managers to move forward.

Hi David! It's just an edit to the translation of the current Japanese Thank You email in production, in order to make the translation clearer (Seilo suggestion). Thus why we bundled it within the same phab ticket: as it's two edits to the same TY email (one is the link in the footer; one is the text in the %ifrecurring% of paragraph). Please lmk if you need any additional info or context

To clarify on Tomasz's note "This one is specific to the Thank You email for recurring/monthly donations in Japanese, and concerns the first sentence of the first paragraph that looks like this now"

It's just an edit to the regular TY email (thank_you.ja.html), but the edit sits within the %ifrecurring% section.

Change 694836 merged by jenkins-bot:

I was willing to pull this into the current sprint when it was just a url change. And when the copy change came in, it was already working it's way through the pipeline. We don't have a lot of time to keep working on this. I'll comment on the other task.

Makes sense & sounds good (we had added it thinking that the first edit had not already been started on, and that it would be efficient to combine-- but since it's too late no worries) Will address it in the other phab task. Thank you!

The url change went out yesterday (I thought it had already gone out but it seems it has been merged but not deployed)
