    Summary by Dmehus

    A new administrator was wondering whether they needed translation administrator privileges to access the translation system, as is common on most other wikis. In short, since administrator is so easy to obtain on Public Test Wiki, we don't have a separate translation administrator user group. Special:PagePreparation and Special:PageTranslation are the primary access points to the translation system, with deletion of translated subpages preferred to removing pages from the translation system.

    Hi greetings, I would like to test TA in this wiki. Would you mind giving me the permission to use TA toolkit? Regards.--Path slopu 102 (talk) 16:04, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

    @Path slopu 102: On some wikis, the translation administrator is a separate user group; on TestWiki, since anyone can request administrator and is such an easy user group to obtain, you should have full access to the translation system. Let me know if you have any questions. Special:PagePreparation is used to prepare any page for translation, then Special:PageTranslation is used to mark a page for translation. Generally, removing a page from the translation system, if it's already been translated, is discouraged, and the usual practice is to delete the translated subpages (handled by FuzzyBot, which runs on the Miraheze jobrunner server with (usually) only a modest delay).
