Description Angela 2005-07-07 04:16:40 UTC
I'm sure this must be a duplicate but I can't find it anywhere. Since 1.5,
non-English wikis keep getting the English interface. It seems to happen
randomly and on about half of the pages, which show the default instead of the
translated version.

If you need more details, please contact or since they're the ones who reported this
for sh and lb. I've also heard reports of the problem on es.

==SH Wikipedia system messages==

Hallo Angela. Can you tell me why sometimes sysetm messages are translated, but
somestames they are not? I translated most important messages here but now
interface is not on Serbocroatian. Can you tell me why, and what I shall do?
Thank you, --Pokrajac 22:00, 5 Jul 2005 (UTC)

==lb-wiki: language swaps of user interface==

Dear Angela,
I contact you in your quality as a developer re a problem that we experience at
the lb-wiki since the first tests with MediaWiki 1.5. started: Whatever language
preference one indicates for the user interface, the user interface randomly
swaps from that preferred language to English and back. Except the fact that of
course the lb-users do not feel very comfortable with these random language
swaps, some of our links not situated in the main namespace do no longer work
and all our bots are currently down as they can not handle random window title
Can you please help to get this bug fixed or have the present request forwarded
to another competent developer? Thanks. --Otets 6 July 2005 20:39 (UTC)
