How are students supposed to localize them? Is this extension in translatewiki? Can you provide some example commit or link to page that explains the process?

Localizing/translating is not admissible as GCI task. I think you mean i18n'ize... do we really have extensions with hardcoded strings in 2016? O_o

The task description would use some pointer to the files you want the student to perform string extraction on: perhaps https://git.wikimedia.org/blob/mediawiki%2Fextensions%2FMassAction/master/src%2FMassActionSpecialPage.php ? Anything else? The strings also need rewriting in most cases, AFAICT.

@Addshore, if you are still willing, I am willing to co-mentor this task with you. Importing to GCI right away.

@D3r1ck01 Do you've an answer for @Nemo_bis' comment? And could you please add some info to the task description to give a possible student some more info about what they need to do and how they can find that out themself (e.g. some links for getting help in 18n topics, documentation and so on)?

@Florian I think that should do? Or is there something else you think is left to add? Cc @Nemo_bis

@D3r1ck01 That looks ok to me, thanks for eacting so fast! :) Do you think that this is doable by one student or should one student convert, let's say, 5 strings to finish the task and another student can do the same to finish the task, two (so having multiple instances of the task)?

Okay @Florian! Let it be doable by multiple students. 5 strings per student then.
