OverviewEdit

Multilingual error messages finally implemented !Edit

On the 28 of september, Mark Ryan announced that multilingual messages had now been implemented on the Wikimania squids. Here is an incomplete list of those in IRC who helped with translations: taw, Mackowaty, WarX, SuiSui, aoineko, Submarine, Rama, Frieda, Quistnix, galwaygirl, Fenix, mnemo and avatar. Particular thanks must go to fuddlemark for extensive Javascript help, and to Jeronim for implementing the new message across the squids. Everyone's help has been greatly appreciated. :)

Now, we just hope not to see these messages too often...
