Preparing pages for translation on TestWiki[edit source]
Thank you for your translation work, both on Meta Wiki and on TestWiki. I did note, though, you recently prepared URL shortener test for translation. In general, though, pages categorized under Category:Special test pages should not be marked for translation, with the obvious exception of Translation setup test, of course. In this case, I'll make a Consul exception at URL shortener test as there are some instructions on that page that could be useful to be translated. But, in general moving forward, perhaps request a Consul's approval before preparing pages in the Category:Special test pages category translation?

Translating interface messages[edit source]
Thank you again for the translation and translation administration work you do here on TestWiki as well as on Meta Wiki. I noticed, though, that you have created Japanaese translations of the following interface messages:
There are certainly some exceptions to this, of course, such as for translating the names of specific pages in the sidebar; however, generally speaking, all interface message translations should instead be done on translatewiki.net. The translations are then updated automatically, usually weekly, to various wiki farms including Wikimedia and Miraheze. MediaWiki:Blockiptext/ja, MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown/ja, and MediaWiki:Newarticletext/ja are likely too TestWiki specific to be translated on translatewiki.net, but the others, I think, could/should probably be translated there? Anyway, I just thought I'd let you know about about translatewiki.net in case you hadn't heard of it, as you may be interested in translating there. :)
- @Dmehus:Okay. I used Special:AllMessages and noticed that this group of messages was different from the MediaWiki default, so I translated it. I know about translatewiki.net :)--Waki285 (talk) 04:01, 22 February 2021 (UTC)
