Some interface strings can't be translated via Mediawiki:*/<iso-code> subpages
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: arnomane

I noticed at Wikimedia Commons that there are interfaces strings that can't be translated within the
MediaWiki-Namespace in the actual manner:

At first a interface string itself can't be translated in one example at Although the german translation exists at it does not get displayed if you change your
interface language to German (wihle the other parts of the interface are German).

Then there are several examples where I can't change the link target for a language (but the interface
string itself can be translated):
