Two langs at same time
Hi! I use Mediawiki to write technical papers. Such documents, unlike other usual content, when I write it in some different languages, must obtain as close match between languages as possible (and people must easy see cross-errors like bad translation, etc.)
But common Mediawiki engine, while has good power for editing in different languages, but not have mode for match two different articles. (or, I don't know about this mode).
What I mean I try to show, (as ideal case) on attach picture.
Here is some paragraphs (colored), each contain sections of two languages hardly tied one to other. I think we can't move existing Wikipedia articles to this mode, because they are not cross-links by correspond paragraph between each language articles. But if introduce this feature to MediaWiki engine, we can write new more international and correct pages, especially technical, and translate (and especially update translations, synchronise articles) with much more feedback.
Sounds like double wiki extension: http://wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:DoubleWiki_Extension
Updated domain. Not i18n.
Hi! Thank you very much. It's exactly what I want. I read this carefully but not found any idea about how I can install it on my MW server. Can you help me please? and, it's not an official Mediawiki extension?
bugzilla is not really for support, but...
There aren't really official Mediawiki extensions, but this one is in wikimedia svn, and in use on a wikimedia wiki, which usually means its of fairly good quality.
Installing it is straightforward, pretty much like any other extension - download from svn, extract to svn, and add
to the bottom of LocalSettings.php See also http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:DoubleWiki
p.s. I'm closing this bug as Worksforme. I'm really unsure if thats the right resolution, but you found an extension that does what you want so its "resolved", but no one did anything so its not "fixed".
