Description Purodha Blissenbach 2009-07-25 18:56:57 UTC
In some messages of MetaVidWiki, there is the word "transcript"
being used. When trying to translate them, I got a strong impression,
that these messages are talking about a transcription rather then a
transcript. See also:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transcription_(linguistics)

If so, these messages should be amended. (I could do so, if need be)

Btw. - several MetaVidWiki messages are hard to translate,
unless explained, because one often can choose among several
similar wordings meaning almost the same but not quite. So, if
possible, add some hints to the /qqq message documentation,
or enter them in translatewiki.net

Thank you.
Comment 1 Michael Dale 2010-12-22 18:58:43 UTC
yes we should improve the metavid messaging. We should de-prioritize the translation of metavid stuff ( if possible ) since that effort could probably be more productive on extensions more widely used in multiple languages

MetaVidWiki work has moved to TimedMediaHandler ... use that instead.
