Description Dan Jacobson 2006-11-05 21:16:42 UTC
SpecialUserlogin.php is great, except that
users see "Don't have a login? Create an account."
even if $wgLanguageCode = "zh-tw";
No wonder users say they didn't see where to create an account.
Follow the click trail in the account creation steps, and you will
encounter other critically placed English on mostly Chinese pages.

If any such English tidbits exist, they're because the translation is incomplete
or out-of-date.  [[m:Localization statistics]] gives the zh-tw translation as
only 37.76% complete.  If you would like to contribute translations, please do so.

I think we can leave this as a standing request. ;)

Actually, it's Taiwanese localization that sucks, not Chinese.  Cantonese
localization is excellent.  Other localizations that suck are Afrikaans, Arabic,
Azerbaijani, Bashkir, Belarusian, Bengali, Bishnupriya Manipuri, Kashubian,
Chuvash, Welsh, Estonian, Basque, Farsi, Faroese, Friulian, Frisian, Alemannic,
Hindi, Interlingua, Icelandic, Lojban, Georgian, Kannada, Kurdish, Latin,
Nahuatl, Occitan, Ossetic, Punjabi, Brazilian Portugese, Romani, Sardinian,
Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Tatar, Tuvan, Udmurt, Ukrainian, Kalmyk, Yiddish, and
Mandarin.  Not to mention all the totally unlocalized languages.  Can we take it
as a given that most languages' localizations suck and we would love people to
localize them?

To Dan Jacobson, seemingly the fallback for when messages don't exist in zh-tw
is zh-cn, but zh-cn has no fallback.  Would it be better to fall back to
Cantonese than to English?  Virtually every message exists in the Cantonese
localization.
Comment 4 Rob Church 2006-11-05 21:45:52 UTC
Language codes suck too!

Apparently the answer to this question is a firm no.
