Description Purodha Blissenbach 2009-04-23 07:50:32 UTC
The message "sf createproperty linktoform" ends with a colon and is followed by a form name. It should preferrably allow the name to be included as a parameter such as $1, so as to not force languages having specific word orders to twist their sentences in a way that allows the name to be at the end of, or behind, the sentence.

Adding many blockers of bug 38638 to the list of "easy" bugs, to mark them as candidates for [[mw:Google Code-in]] tasks (gci2013). If you think this bug is not suitable, remove the keyword.

Change 100512 had a related patch set uploaded by MegaAlex:
Add the "Default Form" input box as $1 to message sf_createproperty_linktoform

This was a documentation problem IMHO, the colon is not followed by the field name but by the text field itself, where to enter the text (which happens to be a form name).
I've copied MegaAlex's documentation to
I don't think it's necessary nor standard to let l10n twist the order of form fields in special pages, hence closing (feel free to reopen if I'm wrong); now that docs are clearer translators will just have to avoid positional references and so on.
