Description Dan Jacobson 2007-11-30 07:21:16 UTC
Gentlemen, how could it be that for non-English languages, e.g.,
$ GET洪朝貴 |grep '<title>'
still gives
<title>洪朝貴 - Wikipedia</title>
and not
<title>洪朝貴 - 維基百科</title> ?

I.e., how could you forget to translate the most important piece of
the page, the title (suffix)?

(Not the same as Bug 5638, nor Bug 8873.)
Comment 1 Niklas Laxström 2007-11-30 14:00:14 UTC
The relevant message is 'pagetitle' and it doesn't need any translation. Sitename of is set to Wikipedia and that's what it displays.
Comment 2 Dan Jacobson 2007-11-30 18:55:48 UTC
OK, thanks. Exploring
we see only zh has the problem.

Note that in a default setup, $wgSitename would show up here:
$ GET |grep siteSub
<h3 id="siteSub">维基百科,自由的百科全书</h3>
but each * apparently has a motto replacing it,
so unless one checks the <title> e.g., in one's browser tags, one
might not notice it. 

Checking the expansion of {{SITENAME}} proves
that's $wgSitename is miscofigured, still using English.

Please check the other languages too. I only checked the above three.

It is normally left to the project communities to request proper settings.

The answer turns out to be...
"兩名有簡繁歧義,無法用轉換系統作出變換。--Shinjiman ⇔ ♨ 2007年12月14日"*
The simplified/traditional Chinese people can agree, and it can't be changed by the conversion system.

Surprise surprise. One character ruins all the fun.
Or the converter system should be beefed up.
If it can change the bodies, it should also be able to change the <titles>.
Changing summary and reopening.
