Translation

Rolando, your knowledge of wiki language is already a great benefit to us. The translation template already looks 500% better. Thank you. Any other changes you think we should make? --jon.jaquesTALK GENI 22:09, 2 February 2008 (PST)

Thanks! I hope I did not ruffle too many feathers. You may have seen what I did with Template:Spanish translation. It could use some tweaking, but I would like to write up a little howto document for the Translation template, and then try to get the different translators to use that format.
As far as suggestions, I would just make sure you're on the lookout for duplicate code--especially complex code like that for tables. It is ripe for errors and can be wildly inconsistent. My hope is that the Geni team could come in to a language template like the one above, parse the content, and generate their translation dictionary for that language. If every language is different--especially if the English terms are different--then it becomes a much more time consuming process.
If there are specific areas of the wiki where you think you could use some syntax/template help, let me know. Rolando 08:09, 3 February 2008 (PST)
