On /en subpages, "This page is a translated version..." should be "Translate this page"
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Assuming that your wiki is in English and you have the Translate extension installed:

  1. Write a page in English.
  2. Mark it for translation.

FuzzyBot will create an /en version of the page that will have exactly the same content as the original one, in English.

EXPECTED

/en page says "Translate this page" just like the original. In fact, perhaps it could be a simple redirect, if the /en is really needed.

ACTUAL

"This page is a translated version of a page XYZ and the translation is 100% complete."

Well, it is not a translation. Furthermore, if they click the link at XYZ they end up in 'the same page' (to the user's eye). Confusing.

At the moment the /en version is needed to enable template transclusion. The notice text could be changed or removed.

OK, then the same "Translate this page" as the original is the best option.

If you agree on the principle, would the implementation be easy (as in EASY keyword) for a newcomer?

The string already exists, and it should be used whenever the page is "/en".
