Translation administrator

Hello, just to follow up on your request for translation administrator. I closed the request, and it was completed by a steward. You have now been granted translation administrator for 1 year. Terasail[✉️] 13:03, 18 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Please do not move translate tags outside of headers

Edits like this one you did are bad edits, and should not be done. Wikitext markup should not appear inside translate tags ever. I won't revert you, but please consider reverting yourself. Jdforrester (WMF) (talk) 00:48, 20 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Oh, and this edit and this edit too. :-( Jdforrester (WMF) (talk) 00:50, 20 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
No, they should be outside of the headers. It'll provide anchors so that any shortcuts can link to it. See mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page_translation_example. Minorax (talk) 02:52, 20 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
I believe Minorax is correct, because of the semi-recent feature enhancement (phab:T62544) whereby the header-wording in the original-language is now automatically available as an #anchor in all translations, without needing to manually add {{anchor}} templates everywhere.
Before that point, it was (IMO) a subjective decision, with pros/cons to each formatting method. (E.g. just marking the words and not the wikitext-markup made it easier to restructure a page later on, but also made it harder for translators to understand the context of the text-fragment within the UI). This new change adds a significant enhancement to the method that includes the wikitext markup.
Tested and confirmed at mw:User:Quiddity_(WMF)/sandboxtranslation/fr where the first heading (with markup included) has the English version automatically anchored, and the second heading (without markup) does not and would require a separate {{anchor}}.
I hope that helps! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 06:03, 20 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
@Quiddity (WMF): Oh no, that's terrible news. Why on Earth would they make that decision? Eurgh. (Also please ping people if you want them to see your comments not on their own talk page!)
@Minorax: Sorry for complaining about you doing the wrong thing, when colleagues have now made it the "right" thing. :-( Jdforrester (WMF) (talk) 16:28, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply
