Ready for early translation: Tech News #22 (2016)

The latest tech newsletter is ready for early translation:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News/2016/22

Direct translation link:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=page-Tech%2FNews%2F2016%2F22&language=&action=page&filter=

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.

Bug fixes in Translate's sync, statistics, management

Thanks to Glaisher (and Kunalgrover05),* this month multiple 
long-standing bugs in Translate were fixed, with considerable 
improvement of the translation workflow. Hopefully we'll have less 
headaches for everyone!

You can see a list at 
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/query/cmMEagL0pJdl/#R for 
instance, if you don't attentively follow Tech News and translation 
noticeboards.

Highlights for translators:
* Translation page does not contain the latest translations/last 
translation https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T48716#2203121 / 
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T53731#2194277 (backlog still in the 
works)
* Edit summary: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T48924

Highlights for translation admins, administrators, patrollers:
* Deletion: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T41415#2269696
* Statistics: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T49864#2273458 / 
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T104172 / 
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T106262#2206626
* Parentheses: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T53226#2279459

Help with translation on Maps pages

Hello translators,
Would you be so kind as to help me translate two pages related to maps?

One is an invitation I would like to send to Wikipedia's asking for interested editors to provide feedback:



The second is the documentation of the feature and how editors can use it.



As always, thank you for your help.

Cross wiki notifications: announcement and documentation

Cross wiki notifications will be released by default on May 12 at 23:00 UTC.


During the beta phase, the cross-wiki notifications feature was enabled by over 18,000 accounts across more than 360 wikis. We receive great feedback from a lot of very happy users. After that 3-months long beta period during which we made adjustments, that feature will be released by default on May 12 at 23:00 UTC.

Users who don't want to receive cross-wiki notifications can turn them off at individual wikis. More information is available on the documentation. The talk page is still open for any questions or feedback.

Do not hesitate to spread that information on your wiki! :)

Thanks,
Benoît

There is no wa to translate the text:
