Meta translation coordinators‎, 04:49, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Merci pour tes traductions en françaisEdit

Bonjour Ата. Merci beaucoup pour tes importantes contributions aux traductions en français !--BonifaceFR (talk) 13:21, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

S’il vous plaît :) -- Ата (talk) 11:28, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

I appreciate the translation! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16:20, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Notifications and the Ukrainian WikipediaEdit

Greetings Ата,

Notifications, also known as Echo, is tentatively scheduled to be deployed to the Ukrainian Wikipedia on 17 September. I was wondering if you would be interested in helping to translate and plan for the release there? This mainly involves translating and localizing the FAQ so the help icon refers users to a local document and pre-announcing the release. Let me know what you think! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 23:03, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Oh, again. Wikis are becoming facebooky, as Savh said, and I don't like it. But, of course, I will translate what is needed to be translated (please, just point me the pages) though I'm not going to advocate Notifications. -- Ата (talk) 09:16, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the translation. The help page is the most important for translating. I can understand your concern about it appearing facebooky, I had the same thought when it appeared on the English Wikipedia. I've actually grown to like notifications. I am a very quiet editor, I do not follow many pages, so it is actually very convenient to be notified when a conversation that I am involved in is updated or if there is something else that someone thought would interest me. The added email options are pretty convenient too. You might even end up liking it :). If not, Notifications has the benefit of being able to turn almost all of the features off. This is a good thing. All of this is said as a long-time Wikipedian, not a Foundation contractor. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 15:47, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

IRC cloak requestEdit

Hello Ата. You recently applied for a Wikimedia IRC cloak, but it looks like you forgot to register your nickname first. Could you please log on to IRC and do:

/msg NickServ REGISTER <password> <email>

where <password> is a password of your choice and <email> is your e-mail address? After you do that, please follow the instructions that are e-mailed to you to confirm your e-mail address. When you're done with that, I just need you to confirm your cloak request:

/msg MemoServ send wmfgc IRC cloak request

After you finish all of that, I'd be happy to get you a cloak. :-) If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my Meta talk page. Barras talk 09:28, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Thanks a lot, I've completed the above steps now :) -- Ата (talk) 10:11, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
Barras, I have a question. 'wikimedia/Ata' in cloak is a bit confusing, because user:Ata also exists. Can somethins be done to point on Ата instead of Ata? No troubles appeared by now, I'm just wondering  . Sorry for my ignorance -- Ата (talk) 14:54, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, since Ata has no global account, I see no point in changing the cloak now. The unattached local accounts seem inactive for years, so there should be no problems with that. -Barras talk 15:05, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

GrammarEdit

Привіт! Я побачив твої виправлення граматики, але переважна більшість із них полягають у заміні британської англійської (де правильно писати programme, organisation, favourable, 15 December) на американську (де пишуть program, organization, favorable, December, 15 тощо). Я не маю нічого проти в переведенні всього звіту на американську англійську, якщо це так важливо, але, будь ласка, переводь уже весь звіт зразу (зараз там суміш organised та organized тощо). Дякую — NickK (talk) 13:37, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Та я власне і хотіла зробити якось однаково (половина дат була так, половина інак), а американська англійська Фонду мала б бути ближча – ну, якісь такі були міркування. Я зараз доредагую до кінця. (Grammar написала, тільки щоб відрізнити своє редагування від редагувань наповнення звіту, а взагалі те все до граматики має таке собі відношення))). -- Ата (talk) 16:52, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
Я просто приводив весь річний звіт до британської англійської, потім весь матеріал з річного звіту за 2012 рік було перенесено в грантовий, а от 2013 вже писали вручну з американським форматом дат, звідти й суміш. Особисто моєму оку звичніший британський формат дат та британська англійська загалі, але тут уже справді на любителя — NickK (talk) 08:01, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
Своїх уподобань в мене нема. Справді, було б краще з документа в документ переносити якусь одну мовну традицію... Зважаючи на те, що я не впевнена, чи вдалось мені звести все до одної (надто поверхово дивилась), можеш скасувати мої редагування до бісової бабці і причесати текст по-людськи :) (було б класно) -- Ата (talk) 14:59, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Broken list on the Participation:Support pageEdit

Hi, Ata! Thanks a lot for your work on the Participation:Support page. It seems the list under "Next Steps" is a bit broken as a result of the translation markers; do you think you could help us with fixing it? (I don't want to mess up the translation markers now that you've put them in.) Cheers, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 17:45, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, Winifred. I didn't notice broken lists while tagging this page. Base helped me to correct error, looks like everything is ok now. -- Ата (talk) 06:36, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
Awesome! Thanks a lot for taking a look at it and fixing it so quickly. We appreciate all of your great work on this page. Cheers, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 19:36, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Translation requestEdit

Greetings. I see you have experience translating pages here at Meta. If you are willing and able, Wikimedia LGBT, a proposed user group, is currently recruiting people to assist with page translations. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you for your consideration. --Another Believer (talk) 17:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I'll remember this. Though I don't usually choose the page to translate, I take them by chance :) -- Ата (talk) 07:11, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Translation markup changes on Data retention guidelinesEdit

Hey Ата,

I wanted to let you know I undid this edit and explain why/make sure we fixed any issues. It appeared from the edit summary your main goal was to change ==<translate>Headers<translate>== to <translate>==Headers==<translate> . I'm not completely sure I understand why that would be better ( it seems better for the translators to have to deal with as little of the wikitext as possible, just having to translate the words themselves) but I'm certainly open for argument on it and probably would have left it. The reason I undid was because I realized a bunch of the translate tags were removed from elsewhere too and we were left with a couple very large translation blocks. Again, obviously happy to talk about if what you were doing was better for the translators since that's obviously the goal :). Jalexander--WMF 06:31, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Jalexander,
The point is that it is better for translators to know that they are dealing with the header. This is strongly recommended in docs on mediawiki-wiki. There are also many other useful trifles in docs of Translate extension and few English-speakers has ever read them, lol ('cause those who translate them had to read for sure). -- Ата (talk) 19:26, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
To be fair when I first started using the extension those docs did not exist ;) I had to learn most of it from scratch or occasionally talking to Nike/Siebrand. I didn't see any reason to go back when I didn't run into any other issues :) On quick glance I don't agree with all of it... but I don't need to :) If the header thing helps more then having to avoid the wiki text that that's fine, I'm happy to adjust that. To be totally honest I tend to over markup simply because I've had the extension not do what I expected (even with the docs) so often that I like to be 'very clear' what I want it to do ;) Jalexander--WMF 20:48, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Huh, I see. Nike and Siebrand created that doc pages in 2009 and I was lucky to have a chance reading. Hope, you're not angry with me about my saying. By the way, if you're experienced with extension, maybe you know something worth adding on help pages? As for the Data retention guidelines I will not make anything else on that page but be ready that someone else can take "== ==" back into translation units :) -- Ата (talk) 22:05, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
I already did, thanks :). I never have any issues with someone correcting me or calling me out if they think I'm wrong, I may not always agree but that's always the case and just because I disagree doesn't mean I'm right. Please don't feel like you can't correct something if you think it needs to be either directly or by reaching out. That's what the Bold Revert Discuss cycle is for. I'll definitely take a look through the documentation and see if I can add anything (especially with some examples or screen shots). I was mostly just surprised because I've never had anyone call me out for the way I did the headers before ;). I fully know that my attitude towards a lot of work is 'make it work' and so sometimes I end up with odd norms ;) which is why it's always good to hear from the people who are using it 'the right way' or even just came up with different odd norms :). Jalexander--WMF 22:28, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Request for feedback on my GSoC'14 proposalEdit

Hi Ата,

I am planning to work on the project titled "Tools for mass migration of legacy translated wiki content" this summer under Google Summer of Code. I have drafted a proposal for the same over the past few weeks. This project is going to help the translation adminstrators like you in a great way, as it would completely automate the tedious manual task of preparing a page for translation and then importing the translations into the Translate extension. You can check the proposal page for detailed information on how I plan to accomplish this.

As you would be an end user of this tool, it would be great if you could go through the proposal and provide feedback/suggestions. Your feedback would definitely help me improve the proposal as well help in creating an even better tool. You can do the same on the discussion page of the proposal or reply here, whichever is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!

P.S: I need to submit the proposal to Google by March 19, 2014.

Rosetta barnstarEdit

  The Meta-Wiki Rosetta barnstar 2013
For being among the top 40 Meta-Wiki translators in 2013, with over 500 translation units edits! If I knew all the Wikimedia languages I'd also compliment you for how spot-on your translations are, but I must leave that to your language colleagues. :) Cheers, Nemo 21:46, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! It is a great pleasure to receive a barnstar with your signature below, Nemo =) -- Ата (talk) 17:17, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Please test the new feature Special:PageMigrationEdit

As a Google Summer of Code Intern, I have been working on the Mass Migration tools project for Wikimedia. We are now ready with a minimal working product. The tool helps translators and translation administrators import the old translations into the Translate Extension.

An instance of the same has been set up on labs. You can find some useful instructions on the main page.

Please test the tool and report bugs/suggestions using the link provided on the main page itself. You can have a look at the tracking bug to check already reported bugs.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Cheers. BPositive (talk) 14:33, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

ВікімедіаEdit

Вітання! Приємно знати, що хтось повторно переглядає правки. Я можу згодитись щодо Вікімедіа. Аби лиш було одноманітно. В разі чого, радий буду допомогти. Mykola Swarnyk (talk) 06:36, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Please consider not translating Tech News in protestEdit

Hi Ата, I have just noticed that you've been working on the translation of Tech News this weekend.

I wanted to ask you to consider refraining from translating such pages to avoid supporting the recent actions of the Wikimedia Foundation. On Sunday, they have implemented a change that gives them an unprecedented, unilateral and unlimited power to protect certain pages on Wikimedia wikis in a manner that makes it impossible for all volunteers — including locally elected administrators — to edit them.

The change was secretly forced through without any community consultation, and the Foundation have used this new feature to actively fight the volunteer community of the German Wikipedia.

Your volunteer translations directly sustain such actions of the Foundation. Your work helps them save time and effort that they would otherwise have to invest in recruiting, training and managing new employees, and saves them money they would otherwise have to spend on professional translations.

The recent actions of the Wikimedia Foundation make it very clear that they no longer respect the wishes of the volunteer community, and that they no longer consider us an equal partner. The least we can do to voice our dismay at those actions, and to support our colleagues on the German Wikipedia, is to stop investing our precious time as volunteers on directly helping the Wikimedia Foundation. We can instead translate pages which help all wiki users.

Please take a minute to consider withdrawing your help for the Foundation in protest against their disrespectful treatment of the volunteer community of the German Wikipedia.

Thank you for your time and your consideration! odder (talk) 22:13, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

I see you're very concerned about the situation, odder. I already know about all this from translators-l and agree. Thank you for the message. -- Ата (talk) 08:30, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
@Ата: I am very concerned about this situation, and very disappointed that it happened in the first place. Disappointment is definitely the overwhelming feeling that I associate with all that has happened. But I also think that change comes through action, and I am glad that you agree with me. I am very, very grateful for everything that you have done for Tech News — I have been watching you translate it for months now — and your support and understanding mean a very great deal to me. odder (talk) 08:39, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Ready for translation: VisualEditor News #9—2014Edit

Hi! This is an invitation to join translators working on the November's issue of the VisualEditor monthly newsletter, which will be widely delivered later this week. The previous bulletin was published in 10 languages, but the translation was completed only for three of them. Will we do better this month?

Група повідомлень не зникаєEdit

Привіт! Йдеться про групу повідомлень під назвою "Wikimedia Russia" у Special:LanguageStats. Я переклав все, що там було. Була також одна сторінка, перекладена з російської на англійську, переклад якої на інші мови був заборонений. Я зв'язався з її автором, і він вилучив її зі списку перекладів. Але група повідомлень все ще там. Я переклав деякі сторінки на дотичні теми, але не допомогло. В розширенні показано, що в цій групі є дві підгрупи - обидві перекладені, обидві я кількаразово пробував оновити через нульові редагування - не допомогло. На Special:LanguageStats постійно показано 7 неперекладених повідомлень - йдеться, найімовірніше, про WMF Resolutions/Approval of Wikimedia Russia - саме тут є 7 повідомлень, але вони перекладені. Не знаю, в чому причина, може я ще щось пропустив, а може є якесь запізнення, з яким я раніше не стикався. А може є ще якийсь нюанс, який можна побачити з інтерфейсу адміністратора перекладу. Можеш глянути?

Додам ще, що я раніше "прибрав" з неперекладених групу повідомлень "Tech", використовуючи нульові редагування на кожній сторінці з цієї групи - після цього вона зникла (тобто перейшла до "повністю перекладених") моментально. Так само відбувається й з іншими, а ця не зникає.--Piramid ion  18:01, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Вже не треба — та група зникла нарешті) Мабуть, хтось щось робив з групами повідомлень, бо там ще дещо помінялось на спеціальній. --Piramidion 04:40, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Ready for translation: VisualEditor News #2—2015Edit

Hi! This is an invitation to join translators working on the April's issue of the VisualEditor monthly newsletter, which will be widely delivered towards the end of next week. The previous bulletin was published in 26 languages—the translation was completed only for ten of them. Will we do better this month? We'd like to reach many more communities in their own language this time, as VE recently became the main editor at other 50+ Wikipedias, and we're announcing interesting developments (auto-fill features for citations, improved special character inserter, drag and drop for categories, invisible templates now marked by a puzzle piece icon, and more).

Early invitation: join VisualEditor's 2015 TranslathonEdit

Hello!

You are invited to join the 2nd edition of the VisualEditor Translathon! It is a translation rally, focused on interface messages and help pages related to VisualEditor.

In order to participate, you need to sign up on the Translathon page. The top 3 contributors will each win a Wikipedia t-shirt of their choice from the Wikipedia store.[1] Translations made between July 15th and July 19th (CDT time zone) qualify.[2]

If you are attending Wikimania Mexico this year, you are also welcome to join a related sprint during the Hackathon in Workplace 1 - Don Américo, Thursday 16 July at 4:00 p.m (CDT) at the conference venue, so you can meet other fellow translators and get support if you need some.

Interface messages have the priority. You will need to create an account at translatewiki.net in order to work on them, if you don't have one. It is recommended to create the account ASAP, so that it can be manually confirmed in time.

You can also help translate documentation pages about VisualEditor on mediawiki.org. You can use your Wikipedia account there. You will find instructions, links and other details on the Translathon page.

Thanks for your attention, and happy translating! Elitre (WMF) 02:59, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

  1. You can choose between any short-sleeve shirt, or other items for the same value.
  2. This means both new translations, and updates for messages in the "Outdated" tab of the translation interface.

A barnstar for you!Edit

Dear translator, with this barnstar the Community Liaisons would like to express their gratitude for your outstanding contributions to the recent 2nd VisualEditor Translathon. The initiative was really successful and we hope you enjoyed participating as much as we enjoyed organizing it! If you're looking for a new opportunity to translate VE-related content, please join translators working on the August's issue of the VisualEditor multilingual newsletter, which will be widely delivered at the end of this workweek. Among other things, this month it features the names of the top contributors for the Translathon ;) Again, thanks a lot for your help, and it was great meeting you in Mexico City! —Elitre (WMF) and Trizek (WMF), 15:33, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

PPS: We are maintaining a list of editors who have worked on VE-related content (such as newsletters). We only use it to notify them of translation opportunities, to make sure they don't miss Translathons, etc. If you would like messages like this one to be delivered on your talk page at a different WMF project, need any help with translations related to VisualEditor or would like to remove your name from that list, please contact Elitre directly.

Ready for translation: VisualEditor News #5—2015Edit

Hi! This is an invitation to join translators working on the October's issue of the VisualEditor multilingual newsletter, which will be widely delivered at the end of this workweek. Thanks a lot for your support, as usual! Elitre (WMF), 18:00, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

PS: Here are some instructions. Please go to the translation page: your language should be available from the drop-down menu on the right. Once you've selected it, you'll see the document in English side by side with any translation work already done in your language. You can add new translations or modify existing ones.
PPS: We are maintaining a list of editors who have worked on VE-related content (such as newsletters). We only use it to notify them of translation opportunities, to make sure they don't miss Translathons, etc. If you would like messages like this one to be delivered on your talk page at a different WMF project, need any help with translations related to VisualEditor or would like to remove your name from that list, please contact me directly.

Tech NewsEdit

As the year, at least according to the calendar used by Tech News, is drawing to end, I wanted to say thanks for the Tech News translations – both as a person writing Tech News and a Wikimedia editor who cares about the movement. It’s difficult enough to keep track of what’s happening if one speaks English. I’m happy there’s one place to get a weekly update of what’s happening if one doesn’t. The one true international language is translation. Thank you. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 13:40, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, too, Johan!   -- Ата (talk) 13:45, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on content curation & reviewEdit

I've recently launched an Inspire Campaign to encourage new ideas focusing on content review and curation in Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia volunteers collaboratively manage vast repositories of knowledge, and we’re looking for your ideas about how to manage that knowledge to make it more meaningful and accessible. We invite you to participate and submit ideas, so please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 28th.

All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is welcome - your skills and experience can help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign to improve review and curation tasks so that we can make our content more meaningful and accessible! I JethroBT (WMF) 05:38, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

CEE ReminderEdit

Hi Ata,

In order to give you more info about the Czech round of CEE Spring, see this analysis:

But before that we need to ask you several questions:

  • Did you create a local project page for the contest in your wiki? Please, be sure to link it with Q22342981.
    • Yes, the page exists, and it will be linked.
  • Please briefly describe your local rules on Wikimedia CEE Spring 2016/Local rules.
    • Sure, will be done. Our rules are almost finished; we only need to get some info from Wikimedia Slovakia before we can go. The rules were reviewed by our legal office.
  • There is a proposed timeline of thematic weeks about countries: use it! See Wikimedia CEE Spring 2016/Timeline.
    • No, we will have our own approach to the contest. It will have 3 special rounds, first two will take place from 21st March to 31st May, the third one from 1st May to 30th June.
  • Did you create a template {{CEE Spring 2016}} and make sure that participants will put it on the articles talk pages?
    • Ugh no, what we will use is the education extension. This worked superb last year. Now the question is if you need it on the international level.
    Please have it similar to this example: uk:Template:CEE Spring 2016 for the purpose of gathering statistics.
    Its code is somewhat generic. It might be that your wiki already has templates which cover its parts, or you would not need some parts like gender selection in case your language does not have genders. Some parts, like category names, are worded a weird way on purpose just to show that in languages which have grammar cases you can avoid conjugation (which will require something like #switch parser function) and just use the nominative case.
  • {{CEE Spring 2016}} template requires to create some ~30 hidden categories. Is your wiki ok with that?
  • As the contest is held simultaneously in many Wikipedias, it is vital that all articles, contest templates and categories are linked with Wikidata. Don't forget about this :)
    • The existing ones are done. I made two tables for the Meta Structure page, but the rest has to be done this weekend.
  • One last question: What time zone do you use for defining contest beginning and ending? Please write here.

Please let us know if you need help with anything! Any questions leave here.

  • Right now not, I only have couple of things I need to arrange still (ie. obtain the prizes, prepare press release, FB events and finish the posters and graphics). However, the weekend is a great opportunity for that. On 21st March there will be a community meeting and the contest will be also communicated to our community. Centralnotice also will be (hopefully) arranged. --Aktron (talk) 18:07, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Best regards from international organizers,
-- Ата via MassMessage 18. 3. 2016, 17:02 (CET)

Aktron, will there, in education extension, be the information on what topic and what country the article is about? --Base (talk) 18:39, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
Base, Well, I have not overseen your question. But I understand we are a bit tense recently due to the deadline that was very clear. I mean no, there is no information like that in the extension. Is it important to have it? I would like to help, but on the other hand I do not want to harass our users and contestants with more requirements and obstacles. All the data can be eventually reconstructed from the contributions individually. We will have csv and xls data about the contributions in the end. --Aktron (talk) 21:33, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Aktron, well the problem is that this kind of data is very difficult (and for a bot impossible) to get afterwards (especially if people write about something not from pre-prepared lists). We have global metric which is about homogeneousness of countries coverage, and it would also be nice to have statistics on how were different topics covered. Even if it's not needed for local competition and is not included into global metrics defined in the grant it is still very interesting and I dare say useful to know. I hope that the Education Extension has some API (haven't checked yet) so that at least basic article listing could be done from it so that I will add it to general list I prepare, but there's definitely no way I can get the country and topic data unless they are somehow manually provided (in case of templates it's done with template parameters specific for this). I am not experienced with the extension, but I really hope that you can think on some way participants can point that kind of stuff in the courses. Thanks in advance, --Base (talk) 22:17, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Yep, the article listing will be done and we will have data about who contributed, how many bytes and which articles. Given the fact that last year we had 388 articles from the contest (712 kB), it is reasonable to assume that the specific countries can be added later on possibly by me (manually) so you can evaluate the data. --Aktron (talk) 22:59, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Aktron, Hmm, well if you are not afraid of that task (manually determining country and topic for ~400 articles does sound a big deal to me) and actually are going to do it, ultimately that is fine, thanks really. Though, perhaps you will rethink and put the burden on participants themselves after all somehow :) --Base (talk) 23:49, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Now remember that the determination will be done in an output sheet, I mean, yeah, it won't be simple, but better than harassing our volunteers and participants. And still, we are thinking perhaps too big. So far 2 articles were writen only for CEE Spring on Czech Wikipedia :-) But the automatic czecho-slovak translator works since today, so we might get much more stuff soon. --Aktron (talk) 00:11, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Survey on content curation & review Inspire CampaignEdit

Thanks for your participation in IdeaLab during the Inspire Campaign focused on improving content curation & review processes from February to March 2016. I'm interested in hearing your feedback about your participation during campaign, so if you're able, I invite you to complete this brief survey to describe how you contributed to the campaign and how you felt about participating.

Immediate results of the campaign can be found here. Please feel free to review them and let me know if you have any questions about the campaign or the survey. Thanks! I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 02:31, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Participate in the Inspire Campaign and help address harassment!Edit

Through June, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas focusing on addressing harassment toward Wikimedia contributors. The 2015 Harassment Survey has shown evidence that harassment in various forms - name calling, threats, discrimination, stalking, and impersonation, among others - is pervasive. Available methods and systems to deal with harassment are also considered to be ineffective. These behaviors are clearly harmful, and in addition, many individuals who experience or witness harassment participate less in Wikimedia projects or stop contributing entirely.

Proposals in any language are welcome during the campaign - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign so that we can work together to develop ideas around this important and difficult issue. With thanks,

DARM ChallengeEdit

Hi Ата, I will need some help with this Challenge page. Templates for language bar and for participants are not simple copy/paste templates to use, and I am not able to create them. Can you help with creating them or suggest to me how to create them? Regards --Violetova (talk) 06:59, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi! I see, Glavkos put the table of participants in place. If the page is now stable I can prepare it for translation (it is important to make everything you want with the text before this because additional tags will appear in wikitext). I'll help   --Ата (talk) 11:43, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
Yes, in the meantime, I received help from user Glavkos. I want to check the text one more time, and I hope tomorrow will be ready the stable version. I will write to you tomorrow when the text will be checked. Thank you for your help. Regards -- Violetova (talk) 12:42, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi Ата, the page is ready. User:I JethroBT (WMF) started the language bar, and he said he needs a help. Can you jump in, please? I am helping also, but I am not sure what else to do. Regards, --Violetova (talk) 18:29, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your help. I just need one more thing: How can I add more languages in language bar? For example, I'll need Bulgarian, Greek, or latter maybe some other language if there is need? Regards, --Violetova (talk) 06:51, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
There is a "Translate this page" button upon the language bar. One can translate the page to any language and new translations will appear in the bar no matter what languages are predefined as important for translation. --Ата (talk) 07:41, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
Thank you Ata, but the button `translate this page` is not working properly as I can see. --Violetova (talk) 10:11, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
Hm, what's wrong exactly? If you see that 'English is the source language of this page' then you just choose the needed language on the right (it shows the language of interface by default). --Ата (talk) 10:56, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

My mistake, sorry! I stareted Bulgarian translation (only to start up that page), and everything is OK :) Thank you. --Violetova (talk) 12:47, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

Cee spring surveyEdit

Hi Ata. Since the international organizers did not made public the intention to have a survey, we already asked the Romanian participants to fill out our own survey. I am not sure another one would be appropriate. Lord Bumbury knows about this and has access to the results. Strainu (talk) 04:47, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Лорд Бъмбъри, Base, I guess this means 'minus Romanians from the MassMessage', right? -- Ата (talk) 07:28, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes, this means exactly that. I've discussed this with Strainu and we reached this decision. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. --Lord Bumbury (talk) 07:31, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you all for your support on this!--Strainu (talk) 13:03, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

proposalEdit

Hi @Ата and Base:,

Warm greetings from Urdu Wikipedia!

It was a pleasure for us when one of you translated the interviewed profile of an Urdu Wikipedian.

Similarly, it was our pleasure in translating Vira's blogpost on Wiki Loves Earth 2015.

We hope that these initial steps will help us in our quest for knowing and understanding each others' cultures better.

In line with our previous exchange of emails, I've drafted a tentative collaboration project page in my sandbox: User:Hindustanilanguage/sandbox.

Please note that everything here is tentative and will be based on our mutual agreement. Hence I invite you to make any alteration / modification of the text in my sandbox or post a message to this effect on my talk page.

I look forward for a friendly and mutually beneficial association with the people of Ukraine. I hope that Wikipedia will serve as a channel for better understanding of each others' culture, although it swears by its NPOV policy.

Best and warm regards, --Muzammil (talk) 08:36, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

P.S.: Please provide Ukranian titles for the articles listed in the table under "Articles to be created by Ukranian Wikipedians on Urdu culture" --Muzammil (talk) 08:39, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Page moveEdit

Your move of page Copyright strategy/Issues to Template:Copyright strategy/Issues/header has deleted the page history and upset the watchlists of people engaged in discussions there. I have asked at Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat#Page move deleted history for it to be corrected. Rogol Domedonfors (talk) 15:49, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

Yes, it was a bad idea, but it was too late when I understood. Thanks, Rogol Domedonfors. --Ата (talk) 17:19, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

CEESpring SurveyEdit

Hi Ата,

There were/are some issues with CEE Spring Survey for Albanian Community, title was broken (which I fixed in all talk pages), second the survey offer an option for Albanian ("shqip"), but when you enter there is nothing, a message say "Thank you for completing the survey". Who had to translate into Albanian, and was informed any of a local organizers to do it? (we were asket to translate only message.

Anyway, for the moment it is better to remove the option for Albanian, because you will get only empty input from participants who choose Albanian. Thank you.--Liridon (talk) 10:53, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Liridon, thank you for fixing message title (sad error) and for pointing on this trouble with Shqip translation. It exists, but there was a mistake in survey flow that didn't not show it. Take a look now at the surbey, it should work now properly. --Ата (talk) 13:25, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello Ата, hope all is well! As you may know, we at the Wikimedia Foundation's Support and Safety team are developing new training materials to help contributors deal with online harassment situations, and with problems at real life events. The final English version is now finished!

I'm wondering if you would be willing to help us translate content for these Training Modules into your language. We are targeting a minimum of ten languages for these modules, including the English original.

Update regarding Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons tutorial videosEdit

Hello,

I regret to inform you that the series of motivational and educational videos project, which had been planned introduce Wikipedia and some of its sister projects to new contributors, is being discontinued.

There are multiple factors that have led to this decision. The initial budget and time estimates were far too small for a project of this scale and complexity. Also, my simultaneous involvement in Cascadia Wikimedians User Group was problematic due to the shortage of human resources for the user group, which resulted in my spending far more time trying to help the user group than I had planned, so my time and attention were diverted from this video project to assisting the user group.

You can find more information in the final report for the grant.

I regret that this project did not fulfill the hopes that many of us had for it, and I hope that in the future someone with the necessary resources will choose to resume work on it or a similar project. If you are interested in working on this or a similar project then please contact the WMF grants team.

On a personal note, I am retiring from the Wikimedia community. Perhaps I will return someday.

Regards,

--Pine 23:20, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

Community Engagement Insights TranslationsEdit

Thank you very much for you help, and congratulations for finishing the translation first! :) Trizek (WMF) (talk) 17:33, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

Trizek, could you please send me translated survey as a single document? It will be easier to look for possible typos this way. -- Ата (talk) 19:15, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Ата, do you want only the questions you have translated, or all questions including the ones from last year that didn't needed translations from last year?
You can obtain the first by exporting the translations you have made, and merging them into a single document.
For the second, you have the spreadsheet Edward just updated on the project page. That document contains all questions, except the one you've translated this year.

one translation tag at Grants:SimpleEdit

Hello, thank you for taking care of assigning pages for translation, and may I ask you to tag another one for translation at Grants:Simple/About? I guess adding the message box will be helpful for readers, in particular, “We consider your organization's effectiveness, programs, expertise, and partnership with the community.” Thank you always, ----Omotecho (talk) 17:08, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

  Done --Ата (talk) 09:23, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

The Community Wishlist SurveyEdit

Hi,

You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:25, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

The Affiliate-selected Board seats process welcomes your supportEdit

Hello. You are receiving this message because you are active in the field of translations <3 The movement needs you! The Nominations phase has started for the ongoing selection process of two Board members, and the timeline is quite tight.

A Translation Central is available to help translators figure out what's been covered and what's left to do. Over the course of the next few weeks, your attention on candidates' profiles is particularly welcome.

While there are four languages that are especially relevant for multiple affiliates (namely Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish), you can also add others. If you can't help: please see if you know anyone in your circle who could, and spread the word :) Thank you! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 13:20, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

The Research team could use your helpEdit

Hello. You are receiving this message because of your recent activity in the Translations namespace.

The Wikimedia Research team is developing a new algorithm that automatically recommends sections for editors to add to articles. Translations have already occurred for some of the few languages that we are testing in, except for Spanish and Russian. If you have some time in the next few days, please consider translating the short message (only 6 items) we aim to send out soon, in one or both of these languages. (And if you feel like you want to support your tester peers even more, you can do so by taking care of the related instructions page.)

Thank you! Jonathan Morgan & Diego Saez-Trumper, Wikimedia Foundation Research - 18:14, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
