  • So I currently own a Welsh Wiki and lots of the links in the top bar and around the Wiki are in English, such as "Videos" and "Photos". So is this the Wiki where I can provide the translations for those words? I used to go through another Wiki but I see that's no longer in use.

    If this is the Wiki, could someone show me where I can provide Wikia with the Welsh translations of these words and phrases? If not, could anyone show me where to go? It used to be really simple as there was a table with a long list of phrases and then a second column for the translations. Then other speakers of that language would come along and vote or provide their own translations.

    Any ideas? It's hard to provide people with Welsh services with English sitting there hehe.

    Diolch yn fawr!

    • I don't have an answer for how to create global (i.e. for all Wikia) translations for the user interface.

      You can control these items locally (within only one wikia) on the Special:Allmessages page. Just type that page name into the search bar of one of your Welsh wikis, find the message that contains the English content you want to eliminate, and enter the Welsh translation in its place.

      That list is REALLY long, though. It's much easier to find what you need if you know the name of the message(s) you need. Even knowing the prefix will help. Alas, I'm fairly new at the admin thing, and I have no information or advice on where to find the messages you seek. The folk on Community Central's Getting Technical forum may be able to help with that part.

      Hi!

      Japanese community staff said we can't change the Japanese/English words on "On the Wiki" tab. So, possibly there are no way to add the words "by editing the MediaWiki pages".

      But definitely wikia staff have the way to add/change the translated words for non-English Wikia's wikis, so would you please ask Wikia staff at Community Central's Getting Technical forum (as TheRealPella-san said) or Special:Contact ?

      (Sorry for my poor English >_< )

    • Not at all worried. I'm glad you found a solution. I am curious about what the solution is, though. ;-)

    • I'm getting help from the admin here. I'm providing the translations and they're inputting the translations for me :D The reason I hadn't noticed them straight away was that my Wikia preferences had decided to turn themselves back to English... one step forwards... and so on haha
