any idea how to translate the text for the other language versions of the main page? -- Schusch 08:14, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Not sure I understand the whole process, but I can try to add German translations to proposals. --Stefan Bethke 23:03, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
To make it worthwhile, we would need translators for several languages who are prepared to reliably do translations every week. Could you gather some names? Ojw 15:27, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
is it possible to have the english version per default and if there is a translation then the default is substituted by it? -- Schusch 23:39, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
That's possible. I think we should use the CURRENTWEEK variable to make it easier to handle. I'll do that and create a German translation. --abunai 22:42, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I think I got it figured out. It switch to Template:Iotw image/25 with Template:Iotw text/25 and DE:Iotw text/25 next week. The French page will show FR:Iotw text/25 if that page is created, and the English version otherwise. --abunai 00:31, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Looks good, can we include the year too? Ojw 14:27, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
b.t.w. how come the english version gets a 'template:' prefix while the other languages don't? Ojw 14:59, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Yes, e.g. we could use {{CURRENTYEAR}}-{{CURRENTWEEK}} to have the year in the file name. The "template" thing is due to a MediaWiki weirdness. You can't have templates for namespaces, and you can't include pages from the default namespace. The other way around this would be to not use namespaces at all, but I don't think that's any better. --abunai 17:59, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Index of translations: User:Ojw/test1

I have added the CURRENTYEAR variable and moved your page to List of featured images. It should now switch to the next image automatically with the start of the week, so it's no longer necessary to edit Template:Iotw image and Template:Iotw text. (Or is it for the planet.osm feed? Not sure how that works.) --abunai 20:57, 22 June 2009 (UTC)


There are no suffix for other languages. I mean this line

|style="text-align:center"|{{Template:Iotw text}}
