Description WiseSabre 2006-09-03 15:55:07 UTC
We at Urdu Wikipedia have done alot of hard work in translating System messages

If possible please copy these messages to (if there are minor problem, they
could be resolved manualy later)
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-09-03 18:44:08 UTC
Better would be to add these to the software's default language package.  This
will propagate to all WMF Urdu projects automatically, along with any non-WMF
Urdu projects using MediaWiki.  In the future, it would be most helpful if you'd
post new translations here as patches; see [[m:MediaWiki localization]] for info
on how to do this.  To commit your Urdu messages, someone will have to convert
them to that format first, which will probably take some time.  Ideally you
should be willing to install a copy of MediaWiki on your computer so you can
test your patches yourself, but possibly someone will be willing to do it for you.

Please note that the translators must specifically agree to release their
changes under the GNU GPL, which is similar to but distinct from the GFDL that
they've already agreed to release their changes under.

(See also [[m:Localization statistics]].  No Urdu messages at all are currently
translated in the software, unfortunately.)

I'll leave this as shell too, so that the pages can be migrated even if the
internationalization stuff is delayed or whatnot.  But it would be nice if
changes were made to the language files, not just to the wikis.
Comment 2 Jimmy Collins 2006-10-08 11:42:26 UTC
But remember that not all translations on wikipedia sites are usefull for
MediaWiki which is alos used in non wikipedia environments.
Comment 3 Raimond Spekking 2007-04-03 09:22:31 UTC
Message file generated from, with exception of Wikipedia
related stuff (I hope I catched them all) and applied with r20961.

If you find errors please report them and for the future we will be glad to get
updates as described on
