Patch for namespace translation (2.57 KB, patch)

Description Andreas Hörstemeier 2005-05-19 11:04:28 UTC
On the Thai wikipedia, pages in the namespace วิกิพีเดีย (the Thai spelling of
Wikipedia) show in the New Pages list, and probably are also included in the
article count.
Comment 1 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-05-20 16:31:16 UTC
Your problem is that you can't just invent namespaces (just putting ":" in the
name is not enough), you have to actually translate them, all these วิกิพีเดีย:
pages are actually in the main namespace.
Comment 2 Arthit Suriyawongkul 2005-07-13 22:05:33 UTC
so, how to "actually translate" it ?

does it in ?

thanks :)
Comment 3 Niklas Laxström 2005-08-19 22:01:20 UTC
LanguageTh.php has some but not all namespaces translated, they cannot be
translated using Special:Allmessages

Patch for namespace translations

I tried to translate almost namespaces.
Comment 5 Niklas Laxström 2005-08-20 13:47:31 UTC
Have you asked for example the Thai language project communities that these are
the correct translations. Changing namespaces is a messy process and we would
like get them right at the first time. Also, you are not supposed to remove
$wgMetanamespace. If that is not possible, because it has to change too, report
back so we can do it properly.
Comment 7 PaePae 2006-01-29 12:39:14 UTC
Reopen, patch is being prepared.

Patch for namespace translation

The patch is ready.
These namespaces are approved by the community as Arthit indicated.

And we also request for translating these project names into Thai so all
namespaces will be localized.

Comment 9 PaePae 2006-01-29 12:52:11 UTC
I forget that Wikipedia project name is still in English, it is also requested
for translation.

Comment 11 PaePae 2006-03-25 16:38:03 UTC
We are still looking forward to this issue.
Do we have to wait for the new namespace manager developing in branch 1.6?
Comment 12 Niklas Laxström 2006-05-06 16:54:44 UTC
Lot's of existing links would probably stop working with that patch.
