Requesting help in designing a barnstar[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

All Indian Languages using wikipedians,
Further promotion of Indic language wikipedias needs mass media publicity like Print, Radio, television, approaching in academic Institutions.
Also if possible a level of field support from network engineers in India for presentation and training in usage of Indian Languages and wikipedia can be a added boon.
May I call on all indic language wikipedia users,to put our hands together to design special barnstars or suggest one which can be awarded to all those who will support our noble cause with actual field support among Indian education institutions and Indian mass media or actual field 'network'help to users.
I belive we should award barnstars to such users who can support the cause through online publicity like blogs , groups etc. also.
Please do share any good development in this regards to all indic language wikipedias at विकिपिडिया: देवनागरी टेम्प्लेट परियोजना

Assamese word for "Computer Science" - "সংগণন বিজ্ঞান"[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

Betawiki: better support for your language in MediaWiki[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

Dear community. I am writing to you to promote a special wiki called Betawiki. This wiki facilitates the localisation (l10n) of the MediaWiki interface. You may have changed many messages here on Wikipedia to use your language for your language profile, but if you would log in to for example the English language Wiktionary, you would not be able to use the interface as well translated as here. Infact, of the 1792 messages in the core of MediaWiki, ০ messages have been translated. Betawiki also supports the translation of messages of over 75 extensions, with 981 messages.

If you wish to contribute to better support of your language in MediaWiki, as well as for many MediaWiki extensions, please visit Betawiki, create an account and request translator priviledges. You can see the current status of localisation of your language on meta and do not forget to get in touch with others that may already be working on your language on Betawiki.

If you have any further questions, please let me know on my talk page on Betawiki. We will try and assist you as much as possible, for example by importing all messages from a local wiki for you to start with, if you so desire.

You can also find us on the Freenode IRC network in the channel #mediawiki-i18n where we would be happy to help you get started.

Use correct Assamese encoding[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

Hi All, It seems there are some mistakes in the Assamese encoding that has crept in. First, there is a difference between the colon (:) and the visarga (ঃ). They should not be used in place of each other. Second, there exists no separate Assamese "dari" and Unicode prescribes we use the Devanagri danda (।) and the double danda (॥). The vertical pipe (|) should not be used for the Assamese dari.

অসমীয়া প্ৰতিশব্দ[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

মই দুই এটা কম্পিউটাৰ‌ সম্পৰ্কীয় লেখা লেখিছোঁ। তাৰে কাৰণে কেতিয়াবা অসমীয়া প্ৰতিশব্দ বিচাৰি প্ৰায়ে হাবাথুৰি খাব লাগে। কিছুমান প্ৰতিশব্দ আকৌ এনে আচহুৱা যেন লাগে যে পাঠকে উজুতি খোৱাৰ‌ ভয়ত ইংৰাজী শব্দটোকে অসমীয়াত লিখিব লাগে। উদাহৰ‌ণ:

সংগণন: computation
প্ৰতীকিকৰ‌ণ বা আৰ্হিকৰ‌ণ: abstraction
বিধি: program

এই সমস্যাৰ‌ সমাধানৰ‌ কাৰ‌ণে মই দুটা উপায় বিচাৰি পাইছোঁ:

  1. বহুব্যৱহৃত আৰু বহুপৰিচিত ইংৰাজী টেকনিকেল শব্দবোৰ‌ৰ নতুন আচহুৱা শব্দ উদ্ভাৱন কৰাৰ‌ পৰিবৰ্তে যেনে আছে তেনেই অসমীয়া আখৰ‌ত লিখিব পাৰি।
  2. নতুন শব্দৰ‌ উদ্ভাৱনৰ‌ এক প্ৰক্ৰিয়া আৰ‌ম্ভ কৰা

দ্বিতীয়টো কষ্টসাধ্য আৰু বিতৰ্কপ্ৰৱন। খিয়লিয়া বুলি এনেয়ে অসমীয়াৰ‌ নাম আছে। তদুপৰি ৱিকিপেডিয়াত একেটা শব্দৰে বিভিন্নজনে বিভিন্ন প্ৰতিৰূপ ব্যৱহাৰ‌ কৰাৰ‌ আশংকা প্ৰৱল। উদাহৰ‌ণস্বৰূপে ৱিকিপিডিয়া/উইকিপিডিয়া/গণবিশ্বকোষ ইত্যাদিলৈ চালেই হ'ল। নতুন শব্দ উদ্ভাৱন কৰোঁতে প্ৰা‌য়েই সংস্কৃতৰ‌ আশ্ৰয় লবলগা হয় বা নহলেও আচহুৱা শব্দ একোটাৰ‌ সৃষ্টি হয়। আজিকালি অনেক অসমীয়া পাঠকৰ‌ যি অৱস্থা, তালৈ চাই নতুন শব্দ শিকোৱাবলৈ যত্ন কৰিলে হিতে বিপৰীত হে হব যেন লাগে।

প্ৰথম উপায়টো বেছি ভাল হব যেন লাগে। ভাষা বোৱতী নদী। সময়ৰ‌ স্ৰোতত বিদেশী শব্দও একোটা ভাষাত লীন যায়। বেছি ৰ‌ক্ষণশীল হবলৈ গলে পোৱাতকৈ হেৰুওৱাৰ‌হে সম্ভাৱনা বেছি।

অৱশ্যে যিক্ষেত্ৰত সুন্দৰ‌ সৰ্বজন ব্যৱহৃত অসমীয়া শব্দ পোৱা যায়, তাত আমিও সেই শব্দ ব্যৱহাৰ‌ৰ‌ হে পক্ষপাতী।

ৰাইজে কি কয়?

Bot policy[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

Hello. To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I suggest implementing the standard bot policy on this wiki. In particular, this policy allows stewards to automatically flag known interlanguage linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests. The policy also enables global bots on this wiki (if this page says that is acceptable), which are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots.

This policy makes bot access requesting much easier for local users, operators, and stewards. To implement it we only need to create a redirect to this page from Project:Bot policy, and add a line at the top noting that it is used here. Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; I hope to implement in one week if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests. Gdgourou ২২:০১, ২৭ চেপ্তেম্বৰ ২০০৮ (UTC)

Done. —Pathoschild ০৯:১৭:৫৮, ১২ অক্টোবৰ ২০০৮ (UTC)

Global bots[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

Hello. The standard bot policy was updated to allow global bots, which are now technically possible. These are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots (the local policy or request page must explicitly allow them, or they won't get access on this wiki). The current requirements for global bots are:

  • a global bot must only maintain interlanguage links or fix double-redirects;
  • a global bot must have already been active on several wikis, with long-term contributions demonstrating its trustworthiness.

Does anyone object to allowing global bots on this wiki? I'll update the local policy in a week if there are no objections. Thanks. Gdgourou ২২:০১, ২৭ চেপ্তেম্বৰ ২০০৮ (UTC)

The LocalisationUpdate extension has gone live[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

The LocalisationUpdate extension is now enabled for all Wikimedia projects. From now on new localisations that become available in SVN will become available to your project within *** hours. Your localisations get into SVN from translatewiki.net typically within a day and at worst in two days. This is a huge improvement from the old practice where the localisations became available with new software. This could take weeks, even months.

The localisations done by our community at translatewiki.net are committed to SVN typically every day. When the system messages in English are the same as the local messages, they will now be inserted in a file and are available for use in all our projects in a timely manner

What this means for you[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

Local messages have an impact on the performance of our system. It is best when messages are as much as possible part of the system messages. In order to remove unnecessary duplication, all the messages that have a local localisation and are exactly the same as the system message will be removed. What we ask you to do is to compare and proof read the messages in translatewiki.net and the local messages. You can then either remove local messages when the translatewiki.net message is to be preferred or, you can update the message at translatewiki.net.

Messages that are specific to your project will have to stay as they are. You do want to check if the format and the variables of the message are still the same.

Why localise at translatewiki.net[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

When you localise at translatewiki.net, your messages will be used in all Wikimedia projects and eventually in all MediaWiki based projects. This is how we provide the standard support for your language. When messages change, at translatewiki.net you will be prompted to revisit your translations. Localising is more efficient because we have innovated the process to make you more efficient; there is text explaining about messages and we have applied AJAX technology to reduce the number of clicks you have to make.

How can we improve the usability for your language[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

We expect that with the implementation of LocalisationUpdate the usability of MediaWiki for your language will improve. We are now ready to look at other aspects of usability for your language as well. There are two questions we would like you to answer: Are there issues with the new functionality of the Usability Initiative Does MediaWiki support your language properly

The best way to answer the first question is to visit the translatewiki.net. Change the language to your language, select the “vector” skin and add the advanced tool bar in in the preferences and check out the new functionality. And make some changes in your user page. When there is a need to improve on the localisation, please make the necessary changess . It should update your localisation straight away. We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Usability_issues.

When there are problems with the support of MediaWiki for your language, we really want to know about this. It is best to report each issue separately. In this way there will be no large mass of issues to resolve but we can address each issue on its own. Consider issues with the display of characters, the presentation of your script, the position of the side bar, the combination of text with other languages, scripts. It is best to try this in an environment like the prototype wiki as it provides you with a clean, basic and up to date environment. The prototype wiki is available for five languages but you can select any of them, change the preferences to your language and test out MediaWiki for your language.

We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Language issues. The issues you raise will all be assessed. It is important to keep each issue separate, because this will make it easier to understand the issues and find solutions.

Thank you for consideration! --Hedwig in Washington ০৭:২২, ১ চেপ্তেম্বৰ ২০১১ (UTC)

Language support group for Assamese[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

The Wikimedia Foundation has brought together a new team of developers who are dedicated to language support. This team is to support all the languages and consequently it is not realistic to expect that the team members can provide proper support for your language. It is for this reason that we are looking for volunteers who will make up a language support team.

This language support team will be asked to provide us with information about their language. Such information may need to be provided either to us or on a website that we will indicate to you. Another activity will be to test software that will likely have an effect on the running of the MediaWiki software. We are looking for people who clearly identify their ability. Formal knowledge is definitely appreciated.

As much of the activity will be concentrated on translatewiki.net, it will be a plus when team members know how to localise at translatewiki.net. Thanks, Gmeijssen ১৫:৩১, ২৬ চেপ্তেম্বৰ ২০১১ (UTC)

WebFonts scheduled to go live on December 12[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

Looking at a website, only to be presented with little squares is the result of a computer not having the fonts necessary to show the characters used for a language. There is a modern method of providing people with a missing font; this is done by sending a font together with the text that is to be displayed.

The Localisation team of the Wikimedia Foundation is working hard to finish the WebFonts functionality. This will serve you with freely licensed fonts when these fonts are not present on your system. For regular users, there will be multiple fonts to choose from or to select none at all.

At translatewiki.net, we run the latest version of the WebFonts software at all times. This allows you to get familiar with the look and feel and follow its progress. To make it easy for you, we will copy the text of the article on your language from your wiki to the Portal:**/Webfonts page at translatewiki. The fonts that we use are the best Freely Licensed fonts we can find. For the Indic languages this is typically the Lohit font that is used in many Linux distributions.

The agenda of the localisation team is that WebFonts will go live on Monday December 12. At the India hackathon we learned about issues with some of the fonts and several issues we were able to resolve and others resulted in the filing of bugs at Red Hat. We are looking into having a triage meeting with Red Hat engineers to assess and address any and all issues.

When there are real issues that prevent the reading of the text, we may consider to postpone the WebFonts implementation for a particular language. We are open to technical solutions that improve the usability or acceptance. Apart from that, Wikipedia exist to bring information to everybody and WebFonts allows us to increase out audience.

We urge you to become part of the language support team for your language; language support teams are what we need because we cannot and do not know all the technical details of each language. Thanks, Gmeijssen 03:07, 25 নভেম্বৰ 2011 (UTC)
