Patch containing full translation of LanguageMs.php (92.86 KB, patch)
2006-01-27 10:44 UTC, Poon Poi Ming

Description Poon Poi Ming 2006-01-27 10:39:57 UTC
The attached LanguageMs.php file is the collective effort 
of a few administrators of ms:Wikipedia (Wikipedia Bahasa 
Melayu), inclusive of Yosri (one of the co-founders).

Although ms:Wikipedia was set up on 12 August, 2003, a 
major part of the interface has not been translated. This 
effort represents a comprehensive effort to translate the 
entirety of the interface. All syntax errors have been 
corrected. No syntax errors were found on final test using 
php -l languageMs.php.

As the changes are substantial, please let me know if I 
should submit by instalments. Thanking you in advance.

Patch containing full translation of LanguageMs.php

I understand that we should only make small changes at a time. The changes in
this file is quite substantial. Please let me know if I should submit the
changes by instalments.
Comment 2 Rowan Collins [IMSoP] 2006-01-27 13:06:43 UTC
1) Please try to keep language files project-neutral - i.e. no references to
Wikipedia. I've replaced all instances of the word "Wikipedia" in the patch with
either {{SITENAME}} or {{ns:project}} as appropriate, but there may be subtler
references that should also be fixed.
2) I've had to do some manual splitting and merging, because there is now a
separate MesssagesMs.php file for the interface strings, with other bits still
in LanguageMs.php; hopefully I didn't break anything!

Otherwise, committed to CVS HEAD; thank you.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-01-27 21:31:59 UTC
The commit was full of hardcoded "Wikipedia" strings which were not in the 
previous version. I've reverted it.
Comment 4 Rowan Collins [IMSoP] 2006-01-28 01:19:33 UTC
Actually, no it wasn't (though the *patch* was) - as stated, I spent some time
*removing* the hard-coded Wikipedia strings in the messages; the only instances
of "Wikipedia" in that file are in comments. [Well, the only ones I can find,
anyway] Looking back, I realise I missed the hard-coded "Wikipedia:" namespace
definitions in LanguageMs.php, because having split the messages out to
MessagesMs.php, I didn't look at much else.

However, see also bug 4772, in which the patch author has "withdrawn" the
original patch anyway. :/
Comment 5 Poon Poi Ming 2006-02-08 07:07:33 UTC
Hi, I was trying to download MessageMs.php but it 
doesn't download when I pressed the download button. 
What I get is only a view of the page on the browser. 
Does it mean that I have to go to
s to make my changes? Thank you.

Right-click and click Save Target As.
Comment 7 Poon Poi Ming 2006-02-25 06:51:16 UTC
Hi, seems like "LanguageMs.php" has been reduced to bare-bone! Guess it is very 
much easy for us now.

I have checked through the translation of "LanguageMs.php" and found only one 
:NS_MEDIAWIKI_TALK => "MediaWiki_Perbualan",#MediaWiki_talk

Can you please change it to:
:NS_MEDIAWIKI_TALK => "Perbualan_MediaWiki",#MediaWiki_talk

Thank you.
