Some URL-targets of the Wikimedia Commons interface are not translateable, although appropriate up to
date translations of the respective pages and the usual /lang_code sub pages do exist.
The Wikimedia Commons MediaWiki pages in concern are:
- MediaWiki:Copyright (text string)
In Wikimedia Commons translations get actively maintained at:
As these sub pages in mediawiki namespace can only be created by admins we have also a quality control so
that bad local legal pages do not get shown in the interface directly. Beside that pages like the privacy
policy page also contain a warning that only the english version found at wikimedia foundation wiki is
the official one. And of course for example the english "General disclaimer" did miss legally required
information until some months so it's always a question of maintenance if a given information is good
So people will keep track of the pages and will actively remove outdated translations of these legal
pages in the interface in order to avoid legal problems.
This would also help Wikimedia Commons a lot being percieved and accepted as a mulitilingual community as
many complains towards Commons do arise on such "english only" things.
