Hi all.

How long does it takes for the translated Wiki page to be published ?

I'm asking cause I'm working on translating of the Wiki pages into my language.


Thanks and Regards.

Welcome!

Nice to see you're interested in translating! I'm not really sure what you mean with "published" though. Wiki articles are visible for everyone as soon as you press the "Save" button. Please read http://wiki.flightgear.org/Help:Translate if you need any help.

Cheers,

The language links aren't added by magic. You need to add [[Sr:Your Page Title]] to every other translation of the same page. So on http://wiki.flightgear.org/FlightGear_Wiki, you will add [[sr:FlightGear Wiki]] to the bottom of the article (you'll find other language links there). You'll have to repeat that for http://wiki.flightgear.org/index.php/ca/FlightGear_Wiki and http://wiki.flightgear.org/index.php/de/FlightGear_Wiki

Got ,got it,got it...thank you very much.


Regards. :D

EDIT: It worked for pages other than the Main Page... I can't find those language links there,and I can't translate some things there..
"The news" and "Did you know" ,titles for both are the only thing I can translate,for some reason... :/

There is a bug in the "SQL database" behind the wiki. You cannot use non-latin characters in page names! This is a long standing bug that is holding back a lot of wiki translations. But if you avoid non-latin characters, you can translate the content. The pages can be moved to the correct page name in the future, once the SQL bug is solved.

Edward

Hi everyone,

Looks like I found the workaround (or someone's fix) for this problem. Mobile version of the Wiki (can be accessed by clicking "Mobile view" at the bottom of the page) is capable of creating and editing pages with non-latin characters in page name. I hope this helps!
Best regards,
