dumb patch that add namespaces for Urdu (1.32 KB, patch)
2006-07-11 16:51 UTC, Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF)

Description WiseSabre 2006-07-05 16:56:35 UTC
Request for the localization of Urdu wikipedia's namespace.

all variables have been translated here

where we were unsure are left blank

If localization is possible do we have to change every page where these
variables have been used or leave them as they are?

any risks involved in it?
Comment 1 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-07-06 14:02:05 UTC
Hallo WiseSabre!

[[ur:template:Wikivar#SITENAME]] is not set yet to "وکیپیڈیا".
Please open another request to change the sitename names of the Urdu projects.

Thanks in advance!

About your questions:

a) all pages which used "canonical" (English) names of the namespaces will
change automaticaly / will be displayed with the new title
b) pages which where de facto always in the main namespace and start with a
prefix which you have selected as namespace names can be moved to the apropriate
namespace by developers; however the associated talk pages need to be moved
manualy or using a bot; the same will happen when you specify the sitenames for
the Urdu projects
c) the MediaWiki messages should only use references to {{SITENAME}} and / or to
the "canonical" (English) names of the namespaces; if you need a {{GRAMMAR:}}
function in order to use the apropriate grammatical forms for the sitenames
please contact Niklas or me at the IRC.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Would it be possible to get core code changes as a patch against Subversion
trunk, or am I going to have to go digging around?
Comment 3 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2006-07-11 16:49:32 UTC
Please have a look at the MediaWiki localisation guide

Comment 6 Tim Starling 2006-08-14 06:07:22 UTC
I've updated the namespaces, but I'm leaving the bug open because the other 
half of the original request, i.e. changing the magic words, has not yet been

This was done with r20961 (bug 7221) and will go live during the next days. I
will close this bug as FIXED, for further translations of magic words and/or
messages please provide at least a textfile, better an unified SVN diff against
trunk in a new bug.
