Bad german translation "Löschte Eigenschaft" and "Löschte Datenobjekt"
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: pyfisch

Description:
If deleted items are used in items there is a message "(Deleted item)" in English, the German translation is at the moment "(Löschte Datenobjekt)" a better translation is "(Gelöschtes Datenobjekt)". Same thing for properties: English "(Deleted property)", German "(Löschte Eigenschaft)", should be "(Gelöschte Eigenschaft)".

changed the message today not knowing about this bug to "gelöschte" (...Eigenschaft / Wikibase-entity-property)
https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=MediaWiki:Wikibase-deletedentity/de

don't know how to deal with "gelöschtes" as switching in l10n-code based on a localized string on the parameter $1 sounds not so nice, if it's even possible.

I think the easiest and cleanest thing is to create 2 separate messages for Wikibase-entity-item and Wikibase-entity-property (as documented in https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=MediaWiki:Wikibase-deletedentity/qqq )

just changed message to "Gelöschte(s) $1" as workaround

Not really nice in my oppinion. I would prefer to use two different messages.
