About this board
Welcome to Wikidata, ChristianKl!
Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!
Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:
- Introduction – An introduction to the project.
- Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
- Community portal – The portal for community members.
- Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
- Project chat – Discussions about the project.
If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

What properties does Commons need?
Structured Commons will need properties to make statements about files. The development team is working on making the software ready to support properties; the question is, what properties does Commons need?
You can find more information and examples to help find properties in a workshop on Commons. Please participate and help fill in the list, and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:53, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi! You was created local version for MediaWiki:Wbqc-violation-message-single-value. In my opinion, this is strongly incorrect way for multilingual site as Wikidata. This is may be done in some cases in the "monolingual" sites like single Wikipedia edition, but in Wikidata, Commons and Meta all changes should be made through Phabricator request and then through TranslateWiki. Otherwise, translators will not be able to maintain the correct display in their language.
In a Wikisystem I don't see why doing changing should require an off-wiki process.
As far as using Translate Wiki in this cases goes, I think that's an issue with the initial setup of the message and not with the edit.
About "issue with the initial setup of the message" - maybe this is true, but it is not a local message and cannot be changed locally.
Wikidata policy is supposed to be done on-wiki. Here the development team made a policy decision about the meaning of of a single value constraint and I reverted that to our existing meaning.
If there's a problem with translation not working for this message in a way that gets picked up by the software that might be a development issue.
If this is local correction - no problem. But in these caces, please, to inform translators and make sure that all translations are also changed locally. Otherwise, it turns out to be extremely incorrect in relation to those who use a non-English interface.
I added the <translate></translate> to the page. Does that do what you want?
Please don't add translate tags to pages in the MediaWiki namespace. That breaks the software and these messages are already translatable. I fixed it.
Could you help with a catalog for geni.com IDs? Related to bioinformatics and medicine - Property talk:P2600#Mix'n'match - create catalog
How do you see the relationship to bioinformatics and medicine?
Multilingual captions testing is available
The early prototype for multilingual caption support is available for testing. More information on how to sign up to test is on Commons. Thanks, happy editing to you. - Keegan (WMF) (talk) 17:06, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
