Description Jean-Fred 2013-12-23 23:19:41 UTC
The Translate extensions documentation on MediaWiki.org gives example of best practices to handle wiki markup.
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:Translate/Page_translation_administration#Markup_examples>

Among other wiki elements, it indicates that to split long lists, one should “use <translate>-tags [and] not insert new lines as this will break the HTML output.” The reverse is actually true :

Breaks output:
---
* Categories
</translate><translate>
* Links
----

Output ok:
---
* Categories
</translate>
<translate>
* Links
----
