Description Meno25 2007-06-25 10:33:04 UTC
Please localize Special:Version. Currently the page displays the text in English only in all Wikipedias. The text can be written in a new system message and admins of every Wikipedia can translate it. I am not sure whether this will alter any legal terms.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-06-25 10:35:12 UTC
No point in doing this.
Comment 2 Raimond Spekking 2007-06-25 19:32:17 UTC
I think it is worse to localize this page provided that important information, at least licence and authors names, are undeletable by translators.
Comment 3 Raimond Spekking 2007-06-27 10:24:08 UTC
Done with r23471 for the special page itself.

TODO: Localization of extension credit descriptions. But I have an idea...

Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2007-06-27 14:41:22 UTC
I reverted that as it was so fragile it broke extension info formatting.
Comment 5 Raimond Spekking 2008-01-31 14:40:44 UTC
Done with r30349.

Extension descriptions can be localized by adding the new keyword 'descriptionmsg' to $wgExtensionCredits with a message name.
See the Cite extension as example.
