Template:Babelcat/i18n[edit]

Please mark it for translation. I’ve created the /en subpage in order to make autotranslate already work now; it should be overwritten by FuzzyBot and become not editable by hand after the /i18n page has been marked for translation. (If I copied it right, the “overwriting” should be a null edit and as such not appear in the edit history.) Thanks in advance! —Tacsipacsi (talk) 19:06, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done I was wondering if/how we should translate the {{#language: }} part. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 08:01, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
@Matěj Suchánek: It’s translatable. Simply replace {{#language:$lang|en}}}} with {{#language:$lang|cs}}}} in Czech, for example. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 00:38, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Of course. I meant: how to make the language depend on the translation? Matěj Suchánek (talk) 07:29, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
I don’t understand you. {{#language:de|en}} → German, {{#language:de|cs}} → němčina. How should it depend more? —Tacsipacsi (talk)
Template:Babelcat/i18n has en hardcoded for all translations (ie. subpages). Matěj Suchánek (talk) 14:49, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
If you mean that the /i18n page itself gives always the English version, it’s not a problem: first, the whole text is in English; second, it’s never used directly (not only because it’s easier for the i18n template, but also because it gives terrible results—<translate> tags simply can’t be embedded). If you mean that it can’t be changed in translation, you’re wrong; just take a look at the source of the French or Hungarian translation. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 19:07, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Another question, where can we translate the name of the language returns by #language? I discover that « #language|bcl » returns the name in English (Central Bikol), not in French (bikol central). There are probably other languages that are not translated in French. Pamputt (talk) 05:16, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Via translatewiki:CLDR I would say. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 07:29, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
