a gadget to hide apihelp

Hi,

A little tip to translators at translatewiki.net:

I usually try to have the translation of several important message groups to my language at 100% or close to it. Among these groups is "Extensions used by Wikimedia".

In the recent weeks hundreds of new messages were added to this groups as part of the Apihelp localization project.[1] Apihelp is generally a nice thing all of which should be translated, but I found this overwhelming: Apihelp is only useful to developers, while some important and highly visible messages in projects like VisualEditor and Flow may get lost among the hundreds of new Apihelp strings.

So I wrote this little gadget in my user space:
https://translatewiki.net/wiki/User:Amire80/common.js

It adds a "Remove apihelp" link to the top personal bar near the Talk page link. Clicking that link hides all currently visible Apihelp messages in the translation view.

Feel free to copy it and to improve it. I just made it in a few minutes and it may have bugs.

Again: Please *do* translate Apihelp to your languages. Don't use the gadget to just ignore Apihelp completely - only to get through the time until it's all translated.

Hope it's useful :)

Plural rule changes for many languages - MediaWiki migrates to CLDR 26

MediaWiki is upgrading its plural rules to match CLDR version 26. The
updates include incompatible changes for plural forms in Russian,
Prussian, Tagalog, Manx and several languages that fall back to
Russian. In addition there are minor changes for other languages.

In January 2014, CLDR 24 had introduced several changes in the plural
forms for some of these languages, including Russian, and we had
updated MediaWiki's plural rules to comply with the CLDR standard.
Some of these changes are now being reverted. Below is a detailed
explanation of the changes.

For the migration period, from Monday, 27th October 2014 to Thursday
6th November 2014, we have disabled LocalisationUpdate at Wikimedia
wikis to reduce the chance of ungrammatical translations being
displayed in the interface. Translators are requested to start
updating translations from Tuesday 28th October 2014 onward.

Further updates will be posted on
https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Thread:Support/Plural_rule_changes_for_many_languages

== Russian and language using Russian as fallback ==
Languages affected: Russian (ru), Abkhaz (ab), Avaric (av), Bashkir
(ba), Buryat (bxr), Chechen (ce), Crimean Tatar (crh-cyrl), Chuvash
(cv), Inguish (inh), Komi-Permyak (koi), Karachay-Balkar (krc), Komi
(kv), Lak (lbe), Lezghian (lez), Eastern Mari (mhr), Western Mari
(mrj), Yakut (sah), Tatar (tt), Tatar-Cyrillic (tt-cyrl), Tuvinian
(tyv), Udmurt (udm), Kalmyk (xal).

CLDR 24 plural forms for Russian were:
* Form 1:  <at> integer 1, 21, 31, 41, 51, 61, 71, 81, 101, 1001, …
* Form 2:  <at> integer 0, 5~19, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000, 1000000, …
* Form 3:  <at> integer 2~4, 22~24, 32~34, 42~44, 52~54, 62, 102, 1002, …
 <at> decimal 0.0~1.5, 10.0, 100.0, 1000.0, 10000.0, 100000.0, 1000000.0, …

This has been changed to :
* Form 1:  <at> integer 1, 21, 31, 41, 51, 61, 71, 81, 101, 1001, …
* Form 2:  <at> integer 2~4, 22~24, 32~34, 42~44, 52~54, 62, 102, 1002, …
* Form 3:  <at> integer 0, 5~19, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000, 1000000, …
* Form 4:  <at> decimal 0.0~1.5, 10.0, 100.0, 1000.0, 10000.0, 100000.0, 1000000.0, …

Plurals in translations for affected languages have been updated
automatically where possible. Translators are requested to check all
messages containing plurals, starting from those which have been
marked as outdated.

== Prussian ==
Prussian (prg) now follows the same rules as Latvian (lv):
* Form 1:  <at> integer 0, 10~20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000,
1000000, …  <at> decimal 0.0, 10.0, 11.0, 12.0, 13.0, 14.0, 15.0, 16.0,
100.0, 1000.0, 10000.0, 100000.0, 1000000.0, …
* Form 2:  <at> integer 1, 21, 31, 41, 51, 61, 71, 81, 101, 1001, …
 <at> decimal 0.1, 1.0, 1.1, 2.1, 3.1, 4.1, 5.1, 6.1, 7.1, 10.1, 100.1,
1000.1, …
* Form 3:  <at> integer 2~9, 22~29, 102, 1002, …  <at> decimal 0.2~0.9, 1.2~1.9,
10.2, 100.2, 1000.2, …

Translators are requested to update all translations containing plural
rules. Those translations have been marked as outdated.

== Tagalog ==
Tagalog (tl) has new rules as follows:
* Form 1:  <at> integer 0~3, 5, 7, 8, 10~13, 15, 17, 18, 20, 21, 100, 1000,
10000, 100000, 1000000, …  <at> decimal 0.0~0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 0.8, 1.0~1.3,
1.5, 1.7, 1.8, 2.0, 2.1, 10.0, 100.0, 1000.0, 10000.0, 100000.0,
1000000.0, …
* Form 2:  <at> integer 4, 6, 9, 14, 16, 19, 24, 26, 104, 1004, …  <at> decimal
0.4, 0.6, 0.9, 1.4, 1.6, 1.9, 2.4, 2.6, 10.4, 100.4, 1000.4, …

Translators are requested to update all translations containing plural
rules. Those translations have been marked as outdated.

== Manx ==
Manx (gv) has a new (fourth) form for decimals. New rules are as follows:
* Form 1:  <at> integer 1, 11, 21, 31, 41, 51, 61, 71, 101, 1001, …
* Form 2:  <at> integer 2, 12, 22, 32, 42, 52, 62, 72, 102, 1002, …
* Form 3:  <at> integer 0, 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 1000, 10000,
100000, 1000000, …
* Form 4:  <at> decimal 0.0~1.5, 10.0, 100.0, 1000.0, 10000.0, 100000.0, 1000000.0, …
* Form 5:  <at> integer 3~10, 13~19, 23, 103, 1003, …

Translators are requested to update all translations containing plural
rules. Those translations have been marked as outdated.

== Other languages ==
* In Mirandese (mwl), Portuguese (pt) and Brazilian Portuguese
(pt-br), the first form now also includes zero.
* In Uyghur (ug), Lower Sorbian (dsb) and Upper Sorbian (hsb), support
for decimals was added.
* In Asturian (ast) and Western Frisian (fy), the first form is no
longer used for decimals.

Translators are encouraged to review translations with plural forms
and update them where necessary. Because the changes have been minor,
we have not marked those translations as outdated.

  -Niklas

Request for translation: File metadata cleanup drive pages

Hello again,

Some of you have already seen this via translation notifications, but
in case you haven't:

I'm launching an initiative to clean up file information pages across
Wikimedia wikis. In order to reach out to the communities in their
native language, I'd like to ask for your help to translate a few
pages.

The main page is this how-to:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/File_metadata_cleanup_drive/How_to_fix_metadata

Direct translation link:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=page-File+metadata+cleanup+drive%2FHow+to+fix+metadata&action=page&filter=%21translated

There are also two other shorter pages:

The project presentation:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/File_metadata_cleanup_drive

Direct translation link:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=page-File+metadata+cleanup+drive&action=page&filter=%21translated

And the template at the top of the pages:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:File_metadata_cleanup_header

Direct translation link:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=page-Template%3AFile+metadata+cleanup+header&action=page&filter=

I've done my best to prepare the pages to minimize the work for
translators, and if you notice anything else I could do to make
translation easier, please do let me know. I'm also happy to answer
any questions you might have while translating the documents.

Thank you for your help!
