Russian localization

Can I translate the rows from this page Wikispecies:Localization? --Sobloku (talk) 01:33, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

@Sobloku: Yes please. And when you post here it will remind me to finish off Hungarian. (I'm a little busy now.) —Justin (koavf)TCM 03:50, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
@Koavf: Thank you, but I don't have premission on MediaWiki:Taxonavigation/ru for example:

There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, or search the related logs, but you do not have permission to create this page.

Sobloku (talk) 04:00, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
@Sobloku: Yes, only admins can edit MediaWiki namespaces. If you would like to translate, you can post them here. —Justin (koavf)TCM 06:21, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

Please add the translation to Dutch.
Only the ones I could translate, are translated.

@QZanden: Dank! Why "Botanist" and not "Botanoloog"? —Justin (koavf)TCM 08:27, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
Because Dutch is a weird language, this is one of the confirmations that it is really a weird language ;) QZanden (talk) 12:28, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
@QZanden: I have been learning German and Dutch is on my list further down. Seems hopeless even though it is so close to English. —Justin (koavf)TCM 00:42, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
@Koavf: Good luck with it! QZanden (talk) 08:57, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
@Koavf and QZanden: Wikidata seems rather confused in regards to the Dutch translations. It lists "botanicus" (female form "botanica") rather than "botanist" as the correct Dutch term. This also seems to be the norm on Dutch Wikipedia and is probably correct. On the other hand the Dutch word for bryologist is listed as "bryologist" (female form "bryologiste") in Wikidata, while Dutch Wikipedia uses "bryoloog". See for instance NL: Georg Ernst Ludwig Hampe who is called "een Duitse bryoloog en botanicus" (i.e. "a German bryologist and botanist").
Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 10:48, 1 March 2017 (UTC).
@Tommy Kronkvist:, you were right. I asked it at the biologydesk at nl.wp and they say indeed that it is botanicus. Thanks! QZanden (talk) 20:18, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

Remove T7 and T8 from translation

T7 is a list that don't need to be translate. because the page is protected i cannot update it. can someone with permittion change it? the change need to be is:

  1. Add </translate> in the end of T:2 line (....preferred language to:</translate> )
  2. remove T:7
  3. Add <translate> in the begining of T:3 line (<translate>==Taxon pages== <!--T:3-->)
  4. remove T:8 and put %3C/translate> before the category
  5. last change is to change all /row to Wikispecies:Localization/row. the short form work in the original page not is the translated page (for example, if Hebrew the page is Wikispecies:Localization/he. so the short form will redirect to Wikispecies:Localization/he/row that are not exist)

After this need to delete all exising translating (https://species.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translations&message=Translations%3AWikispecies%3ALocalization%2F7%2Fen). - yona b (talk) 12:58, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

@יונה בנדלאק: Thanks so much. This one is really tricky because you don't want to translate (e.g.) "Español" into Dutch--it needs to stay in the native name. Let me know if this isn't working. —Justin (koavf)TCM 00:47, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. Look ok. I request to delete the translation pages of 7 and 8. - yona b (talk) 08:28, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
@Koavf: That request as well as the outcome of it can be found here: Wikispecies:Administrators' Noticeboard#Request for delete. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 10:52, 1 March 2017 (UTC).

TED (talk) 03:39, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

@TED: Merci. I don't know a lot about French. Can you tell me why some scientists are "-iste"s and some are "-ologue"s? —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:28, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
@Koavf: Because… it's French! (and some can be both) I have checked for each name which one is the most current, or even sometimes which one realy exists (google, ngram viewer, dictionnaries…). TED (talk) 20:30, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
Why is it not done for French? TED (talk) 09:56, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
@TED: I do not know, but I'll send a "ping" to all of the Translation Admins in order to make them aware of it: @AlvaroMolina, Chrumps, CreativeC, Kaganer, Koavf, Samuele2002, and יונה בנדלאק:
–Best regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 17:09, 21 October 2017 (UTC).
@Tommy Kronkvist: Thank you! TED (talk) 15:04, 22 October 2017 (UTC)
@Tommy Kronkvist: - for resolving this request needed regular admin rights. Users with 'translation administrators' access only cannot create or edit MediaWiki messages. My request for this regular admin rights (in addition to translation admin status) was declined. --Kaganer (talk) 20:34, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

───────────────────────── @Kaganer: As far as I can see that is not strictly true. Yes, the "main" Wikispecies:Localization page is locked so that only admins can edit it, but the MediaWiki localization pages listed on it (for instance MediaWiki:Type data/fr for "Type data" i.e. "Données sur le type") are all unlocked and can be created and/or edited by all registered users. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 12:01, 23 October 2017 (UTC).

@Tommy Kronkvist: Unfortunately no :(( See Special:ListGroupRights - 'editinterface' right currently assigned to administrators only. And MediaWiki:Type data/fr is locked for me. As fast solution, maybe discuss this issue in the admin. noticeboard for reach consensus to grant this right to 'translationadmin' also (maybe with 'suppressredirect' and 'delete'/'undelete' rights, that also needs).---Kaganer (talk) 13:15, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
Hi, indeed only administrators can translate system messages into MediaWiki since the editinterface permission is required. So far there is no way to allow users to only "translate" in the MediaWiki space, since it would have to be allowed to edit all messages in the system. Regards. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 20:15, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
Okay, my bad. I didn't check the "Special:ListGroupRights" page. I only assumed that MediaWiki:Type data/fr (and similar pages) are unprotected, since when I click the link there is no warning about it being protected. This is all a bit odd and confusing, since all "MediaWiki:Type data" pages resides in a non-protectable namespace, and when trying to protect them the server replies "pages in this namespace cannot be protected".(verify) For comparison Wikispecies:Localization is not a member of a non-protectable namespace, and trying to edit it will show a warning about it being protected, even when logged in as an admin or in my case also as bureaucrat.
Currently AlvaroMolina is the only Translation Administrator who also possess "standard" Administrator rights, so he can make the changes if he wants to. At the moment I've got too much off-wiki work to do, but I'll start adding the missing French localizations in a day or two. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 11:41, 24 October 2017 (UTC).
I can take care of adding the translations when I have some time. Regards. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 15:08, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
@AlvaroMolina, Kaganer, Koavf, and TED: I have now created the 70 or so French pages for all of the "MediaWiki:Page_name/fr" in the above list, except the ones that can end in both "-iste" and "-ologue". I guess we need to reach consensus on how to handle them? I'll list them here for clarity (with "MediaWiki:Page_name/fr" links):
When we have made a descision about how to handle them, we should also edit "Zoologist = Zoologiste ou Zoologue" accordingly (created by AlvaroMolina in June). We also need to create the French pages for most of the sidebar site interface localization, not mentioned in any of the lists above. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk) 20:31, 24 October 2017 (UTC).
@Tommy Kronkvist: you can take the following names: they are the most common (cf. ngram viewer), but the other one is not false.
And : Zoologist = Zoologiste (ngram viewer)

If someone could please populate and/or correct the above list with the proper German terms I would be happy to include them in Wikispecies:Localization (from where the list derives). Thanks beforehand! –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 13:22, 29 October 2017 (UTC).

@Franz Xaver: Maybe you could take care of this? —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 19:20, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
@Tommy Kronkvist and AlvaroMolina: I now have added some German translations. I am not sure about the context, where "editor" would be used on taxon pages. If it is the the editor of a book, the translation would be "Herausgeber". If it should mean any person, who edits pages in WS or WP, it rather would be "Bearbeiter", as also would be the person, who produced a taxonomic treatment. In both case, the plural would be the same. (In these words the article makes the difference: Der Herausgeber - die Herausgeber.) Moreover, there exist female variants: Die Herausgeberin/Bearbeiterin - die Herausgeberinnen/Bearbeiterinnen. So, this makes it complicated to address gender issues in German. In principle, the male form could be used also for a neutral meaning, but this is not generally accepted. You may risk hot debates. --Franz Xaver (talk) 01:31, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
I have added more translations at Wikispecies:Localization, so the list is nearly complete now. For "editor" and "editors", the best translation seems to be "Herausgeber", as searching for this word results mostly in literature citations. For easier translation, I think we should use all professions in a gender neutral meaning. A gender neutral sense is also used in the German Wikipedia article de:Biologe. --Thiotrix (talk) 08:49, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
Agreed! After having added "Herausgeber" as the translation of "Editor(s)", German is completed now. Yes, assuming neutral meaning for all these terms certainly will make life easier for us. As I see, also the Serbian translation is following the same principle of neutral meaning. As far as I know, Slavic languages also possess these special female terminations. --Franz Xaver (talk) 10:33, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Thanks y'all for collaborating! Now if we could also fix the translations for (in alphabetical order) Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, we would cover most of humanity... :-) Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 21:03, 1 November 2017 (UTC).
