Amire80 added a comment to T30980: parser tags such as <ref>, <poem>, <timeline> etc. cannot be localized.

You don't even need a lot of translations. This is a real problem only for RTL alphabets, where mixing Latin XML-like tags with RTL text is awful. A small number of translations to RTL languages is all that is needed. Translating <ref> to Hindi, Chinese, and Russian can be possible, but I would discourage actually doing it unless there is a good reason to do it.

Any chance we can make the above shorter? This is going to be shown in the survey widget and space is a problem there. We still want the translation to be identical to the English one where possible. If it's not possible, please don't worry about it.

Right, my bad.

Atikamekw is a very old language and its particular because it's always related to the territory, the earth, the nature, the human being... So I have a question for you. Let say in few weeks, when the users will have the namespaces in the context of Wikipedia, and they realize that one namespace should be corrected because of the context, is it possible to change? Is the impact is only to change "What links here"?

Amire80 added a comment to T167714: Create Atikamekw Wikipedia.

Also, a couple of things I noticed:

  • Definitely an error: "Template talk" is the same as "Talk"
  • Possibly not an error, but definitely a curious difference: Why is it that in "Module talk" the work for module is in the beginning, while in most other talk namespaces the corresponding word in in the end?
  • "User talk" is also quite different from other talk namespaces.

If I understand correctly, nrf is the standard code, and nrm is a de-facto code that is used in the current domain, and what's worse—in the HTML lang attribute. The domain should be renamed, but current it's technically blocked, but there is a things that can be done: Add it do getDeprecatedCodeMapping in LanguageCode.php, similarly to gsw -> als. This way nrf will be used in the lang attribute, and in most other places. It should also be fixed it in the langdb of jquery.uls.

Amire80 added a comment to T162741: Test and analyze new Hebrew language analyzers.

@Amire80:

(1) I haven't dug too deeply into the HebMorph code. But, given the ambiguity of Hebrew, I could see being cautious about automatically removing possible prefixes. English Wiktionary tells me that ויקיפדיה is "Wikipedia" (I picked it at random—really!). If that wasn't in the lexicon, would we want it to also guess that יקיפדיה is a word? It's the classic trade off of recall and precision—do you want to get every possible answer (along with a bunch of extra junk), or get only right answers (but miss a bunch of other right answers)? it's never easy to find the perfect balance.

Amire80 added a comment to T155460: VE must convert MS-Word footnotes to <ref> tags and not to [[:File:]] links.

I don't know exactly what did these users do, but if you look at the diffs linked from the task description and the comments, you'll see that the problematic strings appear in double square brackets.

Yes, but these are pasted as a link, so I'd expect the link inspector to detect it. Such links are never useful as real links on a website. I can imagine them being useful on an internal wiki within an intranet, but not on a site like Wikipedia.

Amire80 added a comment to T158835: make Interlanguage links statistics collection more automatic.

Update:

  • This was blocked by files synching on the stat servers, but that is now resolved.
  • I'm working on two things:
    • Scheduling daily auto-updates.
    • Converting the existing data to the new files. This is essentially done with a couple of simple Python scripts to run once, and I'll prepend the data to the new data files once they are ready.

Amire80 added a project to T161400: After saving an edit on mobile view, browser returns to edit screen.: MobileFrontend.

I've been seeing it on Firefox for Android for months. Thought that it's a Firefox bug (even though Firefox for Android is actually quite stable). Kinda good to know that it's broken on Chrome, too (I rarely ever use it).
