Description rowikipedia 2006-04-01 09:25:07 UTC

The Romani Wikipedia that was set up a few days ago has its interface in the
English language, as there is no LanguageRmy.php interface file on the CVS yet.

It would be great if the interface could be updated to the Romany version, the
updated file of which is located at:

(I understand that this uses the obsolete system, but the file itself is updated
and correct).

Would it be possible to make that file the default interface for the Romani
Wikipedia at ?

Please see
Bug 5636: All MessageXx.php files used as dependencies and / or inclusions
(require_once) in another language should use generic namespaces only

I filtered all messages translated to Romani and they are now available at

I suggest the following procedure:
a) Aplay the changes for MessagesRo.php required at bug 5636.
b) use [[meta:LanguageRmy.php/sandbox]] as initial MessagesRmy.php
c) use Romanian language as "fallback" for Romani

Comment 5 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-04-20 03:15:11 UTC
Thanks a lot Niklas and Ashar.

The namespace names are transcluded correctly from LanguageRo.php

There are some phenomenas unknown to me:

a) The colours at [[rmy:special:Allmessages#msg_addedwatch]] do not match what I
experienced elsewhere. The English messages are showing despite the existance of
Romanian messages.
b) see [[rmy:MediaWiki talk:Wrongpassword]]
{{msgnw:MediaWiki:{{PAGENAME}}}} renders in Romani *but*
{{int:{{PAGENAME}}}} renders in *English
c) The Navigation, tabs and personal toolbar should be in Romani else in
Romanian and if nono of the two are translated in English. This is *not* the case.

I would very apreciate if "Romani extends Romanian" (fallback on Romanian) would
be fixed. Thanks in advance!

sorry (In reply to comment #5)

> The namespace names are transcluded correctly from LanguageRo.php

should read [[rmy:template:wikivar]]
Comment 7 rowikipedia 2006-04-20 13:20:20 UTC
Hi. Thanks for the update. How is it now possible to translate the interface
from Romanian to Romani, and how can this be updated? The navigation box is
still in English, also.
Comment 8 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-04-20 19:54:21 UTC
Changing to WORKSFORME regarding all items a), b), c) mentioned at comment 5 .

Thanks a lot for fixing this. Could you please let us know what caused the
problem? Thanks in advance!

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
