Meta:Babylon/Vertaalingen

This page is a translated version of the page Meta:Babylon/Translations and the translation is 41% complete.

Dit is een korte introductie aan de verschillende manieren waarop je kunt helpen met vertalen op Wikimedia projecten.

Je kunt ook op andere Wikimedia projecten inhoud vertalen, zoals Wikipedia, WikiWoordenboek, Wikisource, en meer.

Software

Introductie

Het is nodig dat de gereedschap dat we gebruiken - dingen zoals de bewerk knoppen en menu's op de Wikipedia projecten - zijn vertaald naar de taal van de wiki. Het vezerkert dat iedereen die het leest kan bewerken en voelt comfortabel, omdat het in zijn taal is. Het verzekeren dat MediaWiki, de platform waarop we onze wiki's bouwen, is beschikbaar in zoveel mogelijk talen, een belangrijk taak voor Wikimedia vertalers is.

Dingen vinden om te vertalen

MediaWiki vertalen is uitvoerbaar bij translatewiki.net. Je mag een gebruiker creëren en enkele testvertalingen doen. Dan kies je gewoon de relevante project. De meeste duidelijk is MediaWiki, maar ook kun je daar andere Wikimedia projecten vinden, bijvoorbeeld Revision scoring en Wikimedia mobile apps.

Soms gaan vertaalverzoeken naar de Wikimedia Translators mailing list, maar de meeste zouden naar het system toegevoegd zijn.

Aanmeldingen

Introductie

Announcements are information that is sent out to the Wikimedia communities to make them aware of things that is happening. It can be important technical updates, requests for feedback and invitations to take part of different movement-wide decisions. These are often time-sensitive and are posted on Meta mainly so the translators will have a place to work. There's little point in translating old announcements; they have already been posted on the content wikis and possibly been translated by other editors in discussions there.

Finding things to translate

Most requests for translations of announcements will go out on the Wikimedia Translators mailing list.

Finding help and support

  • An announcement is usually written by a specific person. The person who asked for the announcement to be translated will usually be able to answer most questions about it.

There is a glossary with Wikimedia terms. It is translated to a few, but not most, languages, but can explain some expressions if you're not familiar with them.

You can ask questions at the Wikimedia Translators mailing list.

You can ask questions at #wikimedia-translationverbinden on IRC .

Documentation

Introduction

Most documentation for the Wikimedia movement lives either on MediaWiki.org (if it explains the technology we use) or here on Meta (if it explains the movement, who we are and what we do).

Finding things to translate

You can find pages marked for translation on special pages with list of supported languages, on Meta and on MediaWiki.org. To find your language, enter the language code and press show statistics. However, be aware that many requests there are no longer as relevant as they once were. Occasionally you will stumble on a page for an event or process that took place in 2013 but where the page is now kept mainly for historical reasons. Translating this is probably not the best spent use of your time. To find untranslated things, enter the language code for your language.

You can sign up for notifications at Special:TranslatorSignup. Some requests are also sent out at the Wikimedia Translators mailing list. For most languages there's an enormous backlog and just browsing important documentation on Meta or MediaWiki.org is likely to make you stumble across things that are not translated into your language.

Wikipedia articles and other content

If you want to translate articles or other Wikimedia content, see information about content translation on MediaWiki.org. Many language versions have their own guidelines for translations; you can find a list here. Translating articles isn't much different from other ways of creating content.
