2 strings on Special:Upload are not translateable
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Author: eleriygarregwen

The strings "Browse..." and "File not selected" in Special:Upload cannot be translated at present. I think that the text for these may be taken directly from the user's browser language settings. If the MediaWiki and browser language settings are different, these texts will appear in a different language to the rest of the page. Since MediaWiki has many more languages than are generally available in browsers, this is currently unavoidable for some languages. Or when using public computers, browser and Mediawiki language could be different. See discussion on at

Please make these translateable.

This is not possible without complicated hacks as they come from the browsers itself.
