Top priority for translations[edit]

Dear brothers and sisters in arms it seems there is not much work left to be done by Translation Administers for now. There is however still an extensive need for translations. There are some decisive texts which build the foundation of the participation of users on Wikidata. There is a row of decisive help texts, that are needed in all languages to provide users of every language a basic knowledge of the ways Wikidata works to enable them to be participants of Wikidata. In my opinion there is a critical number of labels and descriptions that is needed to be able to use properties. It is however more important to have proper labels and descriptions for the properties themselves. There can be reported lots of good results concerning the european languages, but there are some languages that are underrepresented. I´d like to make a list of the top priority texts to be translated. A list of the top 50 information and help files would be a good start.Please help in generating a list of the top 50 texts and other important tasks.--Giftzwerg 88 (talk)

Can someone mark my edit for translation? Bigbossfarin (talk) 21:00, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Restored the old version, we need better things to put there. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 21:02, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Wikidata:Property proposal/Proposal preload[edit]

Could my edit be marked for translation? The only change is ==== to <h4> since this prevents extraneous section edit buttons from being added (the generated section links in edit summaries on property proposal pages would be indistinguishable/unusable). Jc86035 (talk) 16:01, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

Wikidata:Property proposal/Proposal preload (2)[edit]

This is not a duplicate of the request above - I have added two parameters to the template (|expected completeness=, |number of ids=) and they would need to be marked for translation. Thank you! − Pintoch (talk) 08:49, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

There is a problem with Help:Label: the translations are not managed by the Translation tool, but do manually. Is it possible to fix that? Thank you. Tubezlob (🙋) 09:19, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

No, since each language follows different rules regrading labels, it doesn't make sense to have English guidelines translated. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 11:19, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
