There is no wa to translate the text:

in the last but one section.

Ready for early translation: Tech News #17 (2016)

The latest tech newsletter is ready for early translation:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News/2016/17

Direct translation link:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=page-Tech%2FNews%2F2016%2F17&action=page&filter=%21translated

I'm planning to send the newsletter on Monday afternoon (UTC), i.e.
Monday morning PDT. The existing translations will be posted on the
wikis in that language.

There may be a few more edits by Friday, but the existing content
should generally remain fairly stable. I will let you know on Friday
in any case.

Let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns. As
always, I appreciate your help and feedback.

//Johan Jönsson

Time-sensitive: 3-line banner for maintenance in ~18 hours

If anyone has time to translate three lines ASAP, please go to https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=Centralnotice-tgroup-codfwMaintenanceSwitchover&filter=

The three lines are:
  • We will be performing server maintenance in less than 2 hours.
  • Starting at approximately 14:00 UTC you will be unable to save any edits until the upgrade is complete.
  • Please see the blog for additional information.


At the moment, we're still missing major languages such as French and German.

Flow satisfaction survey (priority on ar, bs, ca, eo, de, he, pt, ur, zh)

TL;DR: Flow satisfaction survey is open to translation (in priority) for ar, bs, ca, eo, de, he, pt, ur, zh here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Collaboration/Flow_satisfaction_survey

Details

Flow is being used by more and more users on an increasing number of  wikis. Some users are requesting improvements that will make the Flow experience better or to be able to adopt a structured discussion system which fits better with their wiki workflow.

Although Flow per se is not scheduled for major development in the near term, the Collaboration Team remains interested in the project and in providing an improved system for structured discussions. To make decisions about the way forward in this area, we’ve created a survey that will be proposed to Flow users in late April 2016.

We’re requesting translations for Arabic, Bosnian, Catalan, Chinese (zh), Esperanto, French, Hebrew, Portuguese and Urdu. However, Flow is also available on Wikidata and MediaWiki—both international wikis—so translations into any other languages will be much appreciated.

I plan to integrate these translations next Wednesday (the 20th).

The survey will use Qualtrics. The translation source is a little bit rough in order to ease the import in Qualtrics. I've tried to have the best compromise between being able to translate and keeping structured data for import. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you in advance for your time; your work is much appreciated!

Time Sensitive: 3 line Banner translation for maintenance this week

Hi all,

I apologize for the short time frame on this request but if you have a chance it would be great if you could translate the banner I just set up for the server maintenance we will be doing on Tuesday and Thursday this week. This banner will be linking to a blog post about the maintenance and will be up for the 2 hours before the switch to warn people. I've copied the text below if you'd like to just email it to us instead.

If you have a chance you may want to look at the translation for the General Maintenance Banner which may go up during the actual maintenance itself (or we may just keep up the warning one). That banner is mostly translated already but another quick pair of eyes is always good.
