Thank you for translating

Hi Popolon, thank you for translating Template:Iotw text/2013-25 to French! I have fixed a minor syntax bit ( | fr = instead of | fr|), now it appears on FR:Page principale and on File:HOT Haiti Limonade Severin Workshop.jpg. Similar here. You need to take care, otherwise the translations break. :-( Thank you also for this translation (and the many others)! --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 22:47, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks too for the help about erroneous symbols in french translation. There is no page for jul-sep 2013 for now ? Popolon (talk) 19:47, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
Yes, had to be created, thanks for the notice. I did so now: Featured Images/Jul-Sep 2013. --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 20:55, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Once more (a "[" was missing and breaking the link). :-) By the way, the pages which include the text take some time to refresh. You can speed up by appending "?action=purge" to the URL ( e.g. ). Merci for translating! --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 02:36, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

That's really hard to see the text under the picture in french. If I'm not connected and I choose on the main page french, this is still displayed in english. If I connect have english in my settings and choose french in this page, the english is still displayed. To see french text, I need to be connected, with french default language in prefs and click on french on the main page.
The same way, if I use french language as defaut, the option for changing or adding language doesn't works, there is still a link on a separate page, like about one year ago. So it's alread pretty hard to debug translation. Add the need to purge the page, and it break head ;). Popolon (talk) 17:49, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
Hmm, if you do not see the French text on the French main page then it is a cache problem. Either on the server (purge!) or in your browser (ctrl+F5).
Could you please explain what you mean by "option for changing or adding language doesn't work"? Which text? Which link?
To debug while writing a translation, this is what I do: write your text below all the other texts (after }}). Then you can use the preview. When you are finished, then cut your new text and insert it above at the correct place. Use the "show differences" button (beneath the preview button) to make sure that you did not forget text below, save. You can reply here, I will see it. --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 18:43, 13 August 2013 (UTC)


Hello! And sorry for bothering you, but descriptions of files you uploaded need to be improved.

You have uploaded files which are licensed as requiring attribution. But right now attribution is not specified properly.

Please, ask for help if something is confusing or unclear in this message.

Please, fix that problem with this uploads - note that images with unclear licensing situation may be deleted.

Attribution may be missing completely or just be specified in nonstandard way, in either case it needs to be improved. Note that using CC-BY files without specifying attribution is a copyright violation, which is often unethical and unwanted. So clearly specifying required attribution is needed if license which makes attribution mandatory was used.

If it is applying to your own work which not based on work by others - then you can select own user name or some other preferred attribution or even change license to for example {{CC0-self}}

For files which are solely your own work: ensure that it is clearly stated at file page that you created image/took the photo/etc

For works by others - please ensure that there is link to the original source which confirms license and that you used proper attribution, or that source is clearly stated in some other way. This applies when you took screeshot, made map from OSM data and so on.

Especially for old OSM-baded maps, made from data before license change on 12 September 2012 you should use "map data © OpenStreetMap contributors" as at least part of attribution

For old OSM Carto maps, which predate license change on 12 September 2012 you can use a special template {{OSM Carto screenshot||old_license}}

Note: Maybe the current license on this file is wrong and a different one should be used! Wiki:Media file license chart may be helpful. If unsure, ask on Talk:Wiki
