What's /en good for?Edit

I just faced a problem with the translation of a template, Template:BoardChart, that didn't show up properly on the page where it was included, for example Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. I then saw, that there is a /en subpage for English, which is something I can't come up with any reason for. I first tried to purge all caches, to get the corrected version of the template shown, but it didn't work. So now I have two questions:

  1. Why is there such a useless subpage at all? The main pages are English in this anglocentric Wikiverse, there's absolutely no use for an /en subpage.
  2. Who could trigger the translation process, so that the new version will show up?

I already asked this on both talk pages, but especially the first one is a more general question, that probably belongs rather here. Grüße vom Sänger ♫(Reden) 12:34, 6 November 2021 (UTC)

  1. The /en subpage contains the text without all the translation markup, which is useful, as the documentation points out, for translatable templates and if one wanted to export it. {{TNT}} makes us of it.
  2. I marked the page for translation now, which makes the changes show up on the translated pages. --MF-W 14:48, 6 November 2021 (UTC)
    But why isn't the master inserted in such pages, but this strange subpage, that's only for documentation purp9ses? I expect a template to show up asap in the pages, where it is included, at least on the original, i.e. english, page. Grüße vom Sänger ♫(Reden) 19:06, 6 November 2021 (UTC)
    Ah, btw: the page for the board is still not translatable, so only the English version is up to date. Grüße vom Sänger ♫(Reden) 19:11, 6 November 2021 (UTC)
    /en translation subpages exist because every language could have translation subpages, and not every page that's tagged for translation is in English as a base language. Yes it's most of them, but it's not all of them. Vermont (talk) 01:32, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
    This is a technical requirement: pages are not transcluded themselves, their /en subpage is transcluded instead. To update /en subpage from source page, a translation admin (TA) needs to “mark the page for translation”.
    Several TA regularly check for translatable page updates, but you may ping TA here (or directly) if this is urgent.
    What is “the page for the board”? Both WMF BoT and Template:BoardChart are translatable. Pols12 (talk) 14:31, 7 November 2021 (UTC)

Wikipedia Asian Month 2021 - landing pageEdit

We are halfway through, and could we push the landing page to internationalise/localise? Funny it's an editathon and those NON-English reading/writing editors are kept away to comprehend the details of this initiative. Added languages tag already.

  Doing... I would like to clean wikifying (HTML/CSS) first. -- Pols12 (talk) 21:00, 19 November 2021 (UTC)
Done for main page, however transcluded templates still need an internationalization. -- Pols12 (talk) 22:43, 19 November 2021 (UTC)
