Praha[redaktar fonto]

Komento da [User: Morkai5]:

Praha: Me kredas ke ta nomo di ca urbo devus esar "Praga", nomo plu internaciona dil chefa urbo chekiana. Quon vi pensas pri lo? Me savas ke la nomi urbal restas ofte en la nomo nacional, ma Praga es plu multe internaciona, nam la nomo Praha existas pro ke chekiana linguo ne havas g en nacional vorti.

Me preferas nomo "Praha" kam "Praga", nam me esas Cheko e me pensas, ke ol es plu facila skribar regionala nomo kam skribar internacionala nomo --Chekiano 19 17:07, 30 di mayo 2008 (UTC)

OmegaWiki[redaktar fonto]

Hi! Aren't there any volunteers to add Ido words to OmegaWiki, the multilingual wiki dictionary? Currently, there's no one working on this language... 82.154.209.172 00:34, 14 di junio 2007 (UTC)


Namespaces[redaktar fonto]

Another thing this community should think about would be putting the correct namespaces. I suggest moving Wikipedia and Category at first and see how it goes. This means, all pages starting by Wikipedia: would become Wikipedio: and that would be the correct name for the project (I see many pages are redirects to the correct name). Then we have Category which would become Kategorio, and one could also use this word in a text, i.e. [[Kategorio:Lingui]]. I volunteer to monitor the change process if people find it ok. Maybe some small things will be needed from an administrator. Please comment. Thanks, Malafaya 21:15, 24 di novembro 2007 (UTC)

It would be nice if all were in Ido. Hopefully such chance is possible without any problems. – Artomo 21:56, 24 di novembro 2007 (UTC)
It is possible. May I suggest the following:
	NS_MEDIA            => 'Media',
	NS_SPECIAL          => 'Specala',
	NS_MAIN             => '',
	NS_TALK             => 'Diskuto',
	NS_USER             => 'Uzanto',
	NS_USER_TALK        => 'Uzanto_Diskuto',
	NS_PROJECT          => 'Wikipedio'
	NS_PROJECT_TALK     => 'Wikipedio_Diskuto',
	NS_IMAGE            => 'Imajo',
	NS_IMAGE_TALK       => 'Imajo_Diskuto',
	NS_MEDIAWIKI        => 'MediaWiki',
	NS_MEDIAWIKI_TALK   => 'MediaWiki_Diskuto',
	NS_TEMPLATE         => 'Shablono',
	NS_TEMPLATE_TALK    => 'Shablono_Diskuto',
	NS_HELP             => 'Helpo',
	NS_HELP_TALK        => 'Helpo_Diskuto',
	NS_CATEGORY         => 'Kategorio',
	NS_CATEGORY_TALK    => 'Kategorio_Diskuto'
Please give me your feedback on these translations. We will have to be careful with pages that already exist in these new namespaces if same pages exist in original (English) namespaces. Thanks. Malafaya 22:08, 24 di novembro 2007 (UTC)
These same namespaces could also be applied to the Wikivortaro (by adapting both NS_PROJECT and NS_PROJECT_TALK, of course).
Seems to be fine. "Main" could be "Chefa" and instead of “Diskuto” use the word “Debato”, as it is used up there. On the other hand, "Debato kun uzanto", "Debato pri Wikipedio", "Debato pri imajo", "Debato pri Mediawiki", "Debato pri Shablono", "Debato pri helpo", "Debato pri kategorio" were better Ido but if we think that “Debato”-pages are subpages at the main page the form as “Uzanto_Debato”, “Wikipedio_Debato”, and so on, are acceptable to me. – Artomo 23:00, 24 di novembro 2007 (UTC)
"Debato" is good word. I like it. "Main" is the name of the article namespace which is usually empty (just the name of the article without any prefix like Wikipedia: or Category:. If we put Chefa, then articles would be accessible only by, for example, Chefa:Portugalana linguo. Let's keep it empty like in all other Wikis ;) --Malafaya 02:05, 25 di novembro 2007 (UTC)
I agree. Fafnir 20:04, 25 di novembro 2007 (UTC)
Like in Wiktionary, and because the other namespaces names already changed, I'm going to request the project name change here in Wikipedio. The new name should be Wikipedio. All the pages that already in the new namespace may be removed. Most of them are redirects and just one is a copy of that same page in the old namespace. Malafaya 18:06, 30 di novembro 2007 (UTC)

Betawiki: better support for your language in MediaWiki[redaktar fonto]

Dear community. I am writing to you to promote a special wiki called Betawiki. This wiki facilitates the localisation (l10n) of the MediaWiki interface. You may have changed many messages here to use your language in the interface, but if you would log in to for example the Japanese language Wiktionary, you would not be able to use the interface as well translated as here. In fact, of 1,762 messages in the core of MediaWiki, 38.28% of the messages have been translated. Betawiki also supports the translation of messages for 126 extensions, with 2,174 messages. Many of them are used in WMF projects and they are vital for understanding the wiki. Currently 1.17% of the WMF extension messages have been translated. Translators for over 90 languages contribute their work to MediaWiki this way every month.

If you wish to contribute to better support of your language in MediaWiki, as well as for many MediaWiki extensions, please visit Betawiki, create an account and request translator privileges. You can see the current status of localisation of your language on MediaWiki.org and do not forget to get in touch with others that may already be working on your language on Betawiki.

If you have any further questions, please let me know on my talk page on Betawiki. We will try and assist you as much as possible, for example by importing all messages from a local wiki for you to start with, if you so desire.

You can also find us on the Freenode IRC network in the channel #mediawiki-i18n where we will be happy to help you get started.

Thank you very much for your attention and I do hope to see some of you on Betawiki soon! Thanks, Malafaya@Betawiki 17:16, 7 di februaro 2008 (UTC)

The most often used MediaWiki messages[redaktar fonto]

Hoi, the most often used MediaWiki messages (less than 25% of all MediaWiki messages) are the most visible messages. They help our readers and editors the most. We are aiming to get these messages localised for as many languages as possible by the end of the year. Please help us and yourself and localise these messages. Thanks, GerardM 13:27, 17 di novembro 2008 (UTC)

hello[redaktar fonto]

The LocalisationUpdate extension has gone live[redaktar fonto]

The LocalisationUpdate extension is now enabled for all Wikimedia projects. From now on new localisations that become available in SVN will become available to your project within 24 hours. Your localisations get into SVN from translatewiki.net typically within a day and at worst in two days. This is a huge improvement from the old practice where the localisations became available with new software. This could take weeks, even months.

The localisations done by our community at translatewiki.net are committed to SVN typically every day. When the system messages in English are the same as the local messages, they will now be inserted in a file and are available for use in all our projects in a timely manner

What this means for you[redaktar fonto]

Local messages have an impact on the performance of our system. It is best when messages are as much as possible part of the system messages. In order to remove unnecessary duplication, all the messages that have a local localisation and are exactly the same as the system message will be removed. What we ask you to do is to compare and proof read the messages in translatewiki.net and the local messages. You can then either remove local messages when the translatewiki.net message is to be preferred or, you can update the message at translatewiki.net.

Messages that are specific to your project will have to stay as they are. You do want to check if the format and the variables of the message are still the same.

Why localise at translatewiki.net[redaktar fonto]

When you localise at translatewiki.net, your messages will be used in all Wikimedia projects and eventually in all MediaWiki based projects. This is how we provide the standard support for your language. When messages change, at translatewiki.net you will be prompted to revisit your translations. Localising is more efficient because we have innovated the process to make you more efficient; there is text explaining about messages and we have applied AJAX technology to reduce the number of clicks you have to make.

How can we improve the usability for your language[redaktar fonto]

We expect that with the implementation of LocalisationUpdate the usability of MediaWiki for your language will improve. We are now ready to look at other aspects of usability for your language as well. There are two questions we would like you to answer: Are there issues with the new functionality of the Usability Initiative Does MediaWiki support your language properly

The best way to answer the first question is to visit the translatewiki.net. Change the language to your language, select the “vector” skin and add the advanced tool bar in in the preferences and check out the new functionality. And make some changes in your user page. When there is a need to improve on the localisation, please make the necessary changess . It should update your localisation straight away. We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Usability_issues .

When there are problems with the support of MediaWiki for your language, we really want to know about this. It is best to report each issue separately. In this way there will be no large mass of issues to resolve but we can address each issue on its own. Consider issues with the display of characters, the presentation of your script, the position of the side bar, the combination of text with other languages, scripts. It is best to try this in an environment like the prototype wiki as it provides you with a clean, basic and up to date environment. The prototype wiki is available for five languages but you can select any of them, change the preferences to your language and test out MediaWiki for your language.

We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Language_issues . The issues you raise will all be assessed. It is important to keep each issue separate, because this will make it easier to understand the issues and find solutions.

2010 Fundraising Is Almost Here[redaktar fonto]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

Hello Wikipedians, my name is Kelly and I am working for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2010 Fundraiser. My job is to be the liaison between the Ido community and the Foundation. This year's fundraiser is intended to be a collaborative and global effort; we recognize that banner messages which may perform well in the United States don't necessarily translate well, or appeal to international audiences.

I'm contacting you as I am currently looking for translators who are willing to contribute to this project by helping translate and localize messages into Ido and suggesting messages that would appeal to Ido readers on the Fundraising Meta Page. We've started the setup on meta for both banner submission, statistical analysis, and grouping volunteers together.
Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us, and add your feedback to the proposed messages as well! I look forward to working with you during this year's fundraiser. If someone could translate this message I would really appreciate it so that everyone is able to understand our goals and contribute to this year's campaign. Thanks!Klyman 20:16, 20 di oktobro 2010 (UTC)

An urgent translation request[redaktar fonto]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

Greetings :) As you may have noticed, the banners are up and we are in the final stages of testing before the official kickoff on Monday the 15th for this year's WMF fundraiser. We are in a bit of a time crunch to get the Ido translations in before the Fundraiser launch on Monday. We really don't want to have English pages on the Ido projects. This is a calll to to community to get involved, help translate and recruit translators to get all the fundraising materials completed. Here is the translation hub with the Jimmy Appeal, Core Messages, FAQ and Benefactors pages that need to be completed Translations. Once these are completed, we can build the new landing pages and localize the fundraiser! Thanks so much, let me know if there are any questions!Klyman 18:53, 13 di novembro 2010 (UTC)

2011[redaktar fonto]

Saluto, Amiki! Me facos kelka sugesti por kreskar l'artikli di nia Wikipedio: (The rest I'll write in English because for me it's quicker).

  1. all of us start updating the informations about facts that are and will occur this year - 2011 - and that happened in previous years, including events and the informations of births and deaths of remarkable persons (presidents, prime ministers, important sportsmen and sportswomen, actors/actress, etc). For example:
  • I've informed about the floods in Brazil, Australia, Philippines and Sri Lanka that are happening this year, including statistics (deaths, number of people affected). I've also added similar informations about the floods in India in 2009 and, in 2004, I've added the inauguration date of Taipei 101, the tallest building in the world til 2010, when Burj Khalifa became the tallest.
  • I've already updated the informations on births and deaths of many days (from 1 di januaro til 31 di decembro). I suggest that, when we finish a biography, we add the birthdate and/or death date on the corresponding year and daily pages, so these pages will frequently be updated and, from January 1 to December 31, we'll know who was born and who has died on that date.
  • I sometimes update the informations about that occurred on each day. But some events are difficult for me to describe, because I do not dominate a vast vocabulary on Ido language. And other events - for example, the date when the first railroad in Australia was completed - can be more easily discovered by someone who lives in that country than by a foreigner that doesn't have the slightest idea about when that happened. I propose that, when an important event occurs in our countries or in other countries whose informations we receive as news, either good or bad events (e.g. the opening to the public of a new subway line, airport, railroad, or on the other hand the results of severe rain, floods, earthquaques, etc) we update the information on the corresponding day. If it's a long period of time (e.g. the floods in Australia, Brazil, Philippines and Sri Lanka, that still affect these countries) we inform only the month on the corresponding year, "januaro - la sezono di inundadi en Brazilia kontinuas. Plu kam 500 personi ja mortis, til 14 di januaro".

What do you think about this? Best regards/amikale, Joao Xavier 09:28, 14 di januaro 2011 (UTC)

Esas bona se esus kelka Wikipedieri qui sequas l'aktual eventi e rakontus pri li che Wikipedio. Kande me esis plu aktiva en Wikipedio, me adjuntis informaji anke pri eventi e morti di famoza homi. Me esperas ke la Idala Wikipedio kreskas, ma me duras laborar precipue che la Wikivortaro. Artomo 13:16, 14 di januaro 2011 (UTC)

Saluto. The proposal to put in the dates of biographies on the corresponding date pages by the authors of the biographies right. Til now I did not do this, because I thought they would be automatically put in. I will try to do it by myself. Is there a current event page where we can put in the events? Where is it? Generally I am following the news and often write news in Ido for various mailing lists, so the language won't be the problem. Valodnieks 20:48, 14 di januaro 2011 (UTC)

Call for image filter referendum[redaktar fonto]

The Wikimedia Foundation, at the direction of the Board of Trustees, will be holding a vote to determine whether members of the community support the creation and usage of an opt-in personal image filter, which would allow readers to voluntarily screen particular types of images strictly for their own account.

Further details and educational materials will be available shortly. The referendum is scheduled for 12-27 August, 2011, and will be conducted on servers hosted by a neutral third party. Referendum details, officials, voting requirements, and supporting materials will be posted at Meta:Image filter referendum shortly.

Sorry for delivering you a message in English. Please help translate the pages on the referendum on Meta and join the translators mailing list.

Announcing Wikipedia 1.19 beta[redaktar fonto]

Wikimedia Foundation is getting ready to push out 1.19 to all the WMF-hosted wikis. As we finish wrapping up our code review, you can test the new version right now on beta.wmflabs.org. For more information, please read the release notes or the start of the final announcement.

The following are the areas that you will probably be most interested in:

  • Faster loading of javascript files makes dependency tracking more important.
  • New common*.css files usable by skins instead of having to copy piles of generic styles from MonoBook or Vector's css.
  • The default user signature now contains a talk link in addition to the user link.
  • Searching blocked usernames in block log is now clearer.
  • Better timezone recognition in user preferences.
  • Improved diff readability for colorblind people.
  • The interwiki links table can now be accessed also when the interwiki cache is used (used in the API and the Interwiki extension).
  • More gender support (for instance in logs and user lists).
  • Language converter improved, e.g. it now works depending on the page content language.
  • Time and number-formatting magic words also now depend on the page content language.
  • Bidirectional support further improved after 1.18.

Report any problems on the labs beta wiki and we'll work to address them before they software is released to the production wikis.

Note that this cluster does have SUL but it is not integrated with SUL in production, so you'll need to create another account. You should avoid using the same password as you use here. — Global message delivery 00:14, 15 di januaro 2012 (UTC)

Language support group for Ido[redaktar fonto]

This team is to support all the languages and consequently it is not realistic to expect that the team members can provide proper support for your language. It is for this reason that we are looking for volunteers who will make up a language support team.

This language support team will be asked to provide us with information about their language. Such information may need to be provided either to us or on a website that we will indicate to you. Another activity will be to test software that will likely have an effect on the running of the MediaWiki software. We are looking for people who clearly identify their ability. Formal knowledge is definitely appreciated.

As much of the activity will be concentrated on translatewiki.net, it will be a plus when team members know how to localise at translatewiki.net.

MediaWiki 1.19[redaktar fonto]

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.) The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to upgrade MediaWiki (the software powering this wiki) to its latest version this month. You can help to test it before it is enabled, to avoid disruption and breakage. More information is available in the full announcement. Thank you for your understanding.

Étapes de l'Ido et son littérature[redaktar fonto]

Je voudrias savoir s'il y a déjà une division par étapes de l'histoire de l'ido ou même de l'histoire de sa littérature. --Chabi1 (talk) 08:26, 18 di mayo 2012 (UTC)

Update on IPv6[redaktar fonto]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it, as well as the full version of this announcement on Meta)

The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to do limited testing of IPv6 on June 2-3. If there are not too many problems, we may fully enable IPv6 on World IPv6 day (June 6), and keep it enabled.

What this means for your project:

  • At least on June 2-3, 2012, you may see a small number of edits from IPv6 addresses, which are in the form "2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334". See e.g. w:en:IPv6 address. These addresses should behave like any other IP address: You can leave messages on their talk pages; you can track their contributions; you can block them. (See the full version of this announcement for notes on range blocks.)
  • In the mid term, some user scripts and tools will need to be adapted for IPv6.
  • We suspect that IPv6 usage is going to be very low initially, meaning that abuse should be manageable, and we will assist in the monitoring of the situation.

Read the full version of this announcement on how to test the behavior of IPv6 with various tools and how to leave bug reports, and to find a fuller analysis of the implications of the IPv6 migration.

2011 Picture of the Year competition[redaktar fonto]

македонскиnorskpolski

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2011 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We are interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year 2011. Any user registered at Commons or a Wikimedia wiki SUL-related to Commons with more than 75 edits before 1 April 2012 (UTC) is welcome to vote and, of course everyone is welcome to view!

Detailed information about the contest can be found at the introductory page.

About 600 of the best of Wikimedia Common's photos, animations, movies and graphics were chosen –by the international Wikimedia Commons community– out of 12 million files during 2011 and are now called Featured Pictures.

From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons Features Pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories.

We regret that you receive this message in English; we intended to use banners to notify you in your native language but there was both, human and technical resistance.

See you on Commons! --Picture of the Year 2011 Committee 18:22, 5 di junio 2012 (UTC)

Help decide about more than $10 million of Wikimedia donations in the coming year[redaktar fonto]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it)

Hi,

As many of you are aware, the Wikimedia Board of Trustees recently initiated important changes in the way that money is being distributed within the Wikimedia movement. As part of this, a new community-led "Funds Dissemination Committee" (FDC) is currently being set up. Already in 2012-13, its recommendations will guide the decisions about the distribution of over 10 million US dollars among the Foundation, chapters and other eligible entities.

Now, seven capable, knowledgeable and trustworthy community members are sought to volunteer on the initial Funds Dissemination Committee. It is expected to take up its work in September. In addition, a community member is sought to be the Ombudsperson for the FDC process. If you are interested in joining the committee, read the call for volunteers. Nominations are planned to close on August 15.

  • HighBeam Research has access to over 80 million articles from 6,500 publications including newspapers, magazines, academic journals, newswires, trade magazines and encyclopedias. Thousands of new articles are added daily, and archives date back over 25 years covering a wide range of subjects and industries. There are 250 full access 1-year accounts available. All you need is a 1-year old account with 1000 edits. Sign up here.
  • Questia is an online research library for books and journal articles focusing on the humanities and social sciences. Questia has curated titles from over 300 trusted publishers including 77,000 full-text books and 4 million journal, magazine, and newspaper articles, as well as encyclopedia entries. There will soon be 1000 full access 1-year accounts available. All you need is a 1-year old account with 1000 edits. Sign up here.

Request for Comment: Legal Fees Assistance Program[redaktar fonto]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

I apologize for addressing you in English. I would be grateful if you could translate this message into your language.

The Wikimedia Foundation is conducting a request for comment on a proposed program that could provide legal assistance to users in specific support roles who are named in a legal complaint as a defendant because of those roles. We wanted to be sure that your community was aware of this discussion and would have a chance to participate in that discussion.

If this page is not the best place to publicize this request for comment, please help spread the word to those who may be interested in participating. (If you'd like to help translating the "request for comment", program policy or other pages into your language and don't know how the translation system works, please come by my user talk page at m:User talk:Mdennis (WMF). I'll be happy to assist or to connect you with a volunteer who can assist.)

Thank you! --Mdennis (WMF)02:00, 6 di septembro 2012 (UTC)

Wikidata is getting close to a first roll-out[redaktar fonto]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.)

As some of you might already have heard Wikimedia Deutschland is working on a new Wikimedia project. It is called m:Wikidata. The goal of Wikidata is to become a central data repository for the Wikipedias, its sister projects and the world. In the future it will hold data like the number of inhabitants of a country, the date of birth of a famous person or the length of a river. These can then be used in all Wikimedia projects and outside of them.

The project is divided into three phases and "we are getting close to roll-out the first phase". The phases are:

  1. language links in the Wikipedias (making it possible to store the links between the language editions of an article just once in Wikidata instead of in each linked article)
  2. infoboxes (making it possible to store the data that is currently in infoboxes in one central place and share the data)
  3. lists (making it possible to create lists and similar things based on queries to Wikidata so they update automatically when new data is added or modified)

It'd be great if you could join us, test the demo version, provide feedback and take part in the development of Wikidata. You can find all the relevant information including an FAQ and sign-up links for our on-wiki newsletter on the Wikidata page on Meta.

For further discussions please use this talk page (if you are uncomfortable writing in English you can also write in your native language there) or point me to the place where your discussion is happening so I can answer there.

Fundraising localization: volunteers from outside the USA needed[redaktar fonto]

Please translate for your local community

Hello All,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Fundraising team have begun our 'User Experience' project, with the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries outside the USA and enhancing the localization of our donation pages. I am searching for volunteers to spend 30 minutes on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

The only pre-requisite is for the volunteer to actually live in the country and to have access to at least one donation method that we offer for that country (mainly credit/debit card, but also real-time banking like IDEAL, E-wallets, etc...) so we can do a live test and see if the donation goes through. All volunteers will be reimbursed of the donations that eventually succeed (and they will be low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)

By helping us you are actually helping thousands of people to support our mission of free knowledge across the world. Please sing up and help us with our 'User Experience' project! :) If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!

Thanks!
Pats Pena
Global Fundraising Operations Manager, Wikimedia Foundation
