Team Fortress Wiki talk:Translation progress

I created this page because I think we need to have an easier way for translators to co-ordinate efforts. At the moment, discussions are often spread across user talk pages or exist solely in edit summaries of reverts. Hardly encouraging for new translators if they have no idea where to really start and how many other people they have to help them. So the subpages I've made should allow translators to see who they are working with, agree on standards, etc (e.g. noun lists), and perhaps divide the workload evenly so that more pages get done. A more open and encouraging system is what I'm aiming for. seb26 [talk] 06:11, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

I think you've outdone yourself here, seb. This'll be much easier for translators of all languages. It's sort of like playing TF2 on a server where nobody is talking or communicating at all, then all of a sudden everyone starts using their mics and plans strategies.--Piemanmoo 07:09, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
It's a brilliant idea. Shame that DaimoN died and the Russian translation with him.  – Smashman (talk) 10:46, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi, i don't know if i need to notify someone but i just translated 6 articles from english to portuguese (Portugal/pt). Is that ok? Or do i need to register something?

Reaching 100% translation progress

So while I think the Translation progress table is a nice tool that gives a quick overview which language needs more translators we will never reach 100% in that table, since we do not need extra translations for pages like Images by class. Also, do we need translation for WebAPI pages? I guess everyone who uses an API understands english well enough to read the english documentation. While the russian wiki has a page (Category:Images_by_class/ru) to "solve" this problem, I think it would be nice if there was a way to exclude categories by hard-coding their names somewhere so we can reach the satisfying 100% and the missing translations only lists pages that are really missing/needed.

I agree to the above and would also exclude disambiguations, since these pages are often hardly translatable. { TidB | t | c | wt } 03:28, 22 July 2014 (PDT)
Agreed, disambiguations can be really painful except for simple things like "shoes" etc. User SackZement signature.gifSackZement <Talk> 03:39, 22 July 2014 (PDT)
