Description Yug 2008-05-28 20:47:54 UTC
== The cartographers of the Graphic Lab request helps : we scripts need to ease map translation ==
The Wikigraphists (in this cases the cartographers ones) have for long time state they will first set up map making standard, and then work to convert all maps (SVG and PNG) to thoses new standard. 

But it stay the fact that they need more SVG tools to avoid wast of time.

By example, make a translation of a SVG currently need one translator, contacting one SVG graphist, which will then take 20 mins (download, edit, upload), to provide the new-language map. Why ? Why a such complex process when SVG is perfect to be edited online '''exactly like a wiki page'''. Wikicarthographers are hoping that trusted users on commons may be free to provide a list of traduction (pair of words, ex: London -> Londre ; England -> Angleterre ; Spain -> Espagne) on a page (by example on Image:map name.svg/translation/en), and then a bot will directly make the work and upload a new translated version on commons. 

A good start point is the , but he is unknow an not integretated to commons. When on an Image's page on commons, we have on the top "# File # Discussion # Edit # History", it would be really great to add "#Translate"

As of 2008, wikipedians still work on SVG exactly like if it was a Bitmap: we take no advantage of the fact it's a text based media editable by scripts. WikiCartographers would be really happy if the programmers may improve the situation for SVG translation. A simple tools like previously said eventually transforming every active user of commons with a keybaord into a SVG graphist.

Duping this to bug 5899

Comment 2 Yug 2008-05-29 05:20:42 UTC
And for the combo : button "Translate" like button "Check Usage" + ??

This is immediately doable and welcome (wish by SVG graphist and commons community), while the #5899 bug is an impasse since 2005-2006. Attach this request to the #5899 one will de facto kill her.
