Iron Chest Upgrades[edit source]

Requesting that the Iron Chests Chest upgrades be translatable so I can complete translating the mod to Spanish (Apart from shulker boxes but who really cares about them). Intipablo (talk) 13:29, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

Shulker boxes should totally be documented. TheSatanicSanta! Anyway, I will mark them up soon (TM). -Xbony2 (talk) 22:08, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
Upgrades are translatable now, although shulker stuff doesn't exist yet. -Xbony2 (talk) 11:25, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
I think the template could also be translated. What did you mean? --Sven79HD (talk) 17:52, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
What templates? -Xbony2 (talk) 21:23, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
I mean this Template --> Template:Navbox_Category_Item_Storage --Sven79HD (talk) 08:22, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Ehhh... to be honest I don't think that should even be a template. I prefer lists and categories over navboxes. -Xbony2 (talk) 13:28, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Ztones Navbox[edit source]

Requesting that Module:Navbox/Ztones be fully marked up for translation. Right now, quite a few of the items and a few blocks aren't translatable and I'm scared I'll stuff up the navbox again lol. Intipablo (talk) 05:20, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

It is fully marked up for translation. It's just that the tiles aren't translated, which the navbox draws from. Will use your language file to translate stuff, though. -Xbony2 (talk) 18:10, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
oh wait, you didn't translate Ztones, you translated PA. You should translate Ztones. -Xbony2 (talk) 18:13, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

Broken German translation[edit source]

If someone could fix the German translation for Getting Started (ComputerCraft) that would be great. It's broken. -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 19:38, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you Sven79HD for fixing it -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 20:56, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Manual Tilesheet Translation[edit source]

Is there a way to change the automatic translations of the tilesheets? I have just translated the Extra-Utilies Drum into German and see that the little picture is not "Fass" as it should be called, but "Trommel". Correctly it should be called "Fass". -- Preceding unsigned comment was added by Qwertxquartx (talkcontribs)

There is, yeah, through the Special:TileList. You can't do this without Editor permission though, which I can nominate you for. You should join the Discord btw, we kinda use it a lot more for discussion than here (noticeboards are much better for longer discussions though). -Xbony2 (talk) 18:58, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

Deletion of language-translations that have extremely little translation progress[edit source]

Yeah, see title. If languages have very low progress in translation, it can be confusing for readers. For example:

  • [this] (last translation ca. 0.5 years ago)
  • [this] (last translation ca. 5 years ago)
  • [this] (last translation ca. 6 years ago)
  • [this] (last translation ca. 7 years ago)
  • [this] (last translation ca. 1 year ago)
  • [this] (?)
  • [this] (?)

So, i see no reason to keep translations into that languages. And, by the way, I suggest that you delete pages with 0 or 14% progress in the translation (if nothing happens over weeks/months) (for example [here]. If you come from <ko> you may cant understand anything)

What do you think about that? Qwertxquartx (talk) 23:10, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

Nah I don't wanna delete anything, since I don't really have an issue with incomplete pages (you can see that they may be incomplete in the language bar with the little colors). It's also because I distrust deleting pages with Extension:Translate which has been known to be buggy. -Xbony2 (talk) 17:28, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Redirect-pages translated item/blockname > Block/Language[edit source]

And another Idea: Ok, this would be much to do (especionally do it active), but may helpful (i think). The Idea: For Example, create a redirect page from Massenfertiger to Mass Fabricator/de or from Steinbruch to Quarry/de. That would be particularly practical if someone reads the (german) name ingame and then wants to know more here, and e.g. types https://ftb.gamepedia.com/Steinbruch So what do you think about such redirects? Qwertxquartx (talk) 18:20, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

Example: https://ftb.gamepedia.com/Streichholz (<-working) Qwertxquartx (talk) 20:13, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
This is something that has been discussed before actually. My issue with it is that I don't know how much it will necessarily be used for the amount of work it requires. so I dunno. I'm not deadset against it though. -Xbony2 (talk) 17:31, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for the answers! Qwertxquartx (talk) 02:46, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
