Hi there, I just fixed your edit and suggest you reading the translation guide again. Some mistakes were easily avoidable:

  1. Use {{DISPLAYTITLE}} when you're editing a non-item/-patch page.
  2. You're inconsistent translating links. Sometime you do, sometimes you don't. Don't forget to translate the labels.
  3. Use {{lang icon|en}} if an external link links to an English site.
  4. You use templates like this: {{NameHere}}, not by copying their contents on the translated page.

Feel free to respond, add me on Steam or join the IRC. { TidB | t | c | wt } 13:12, 22 October 2014 (PDT)

Heyo! So, as a tip, you can add the french item names to the dictionary, and you can see the translated item name from the official translation. (a.k.a. STS/Localization files)
Again, if you have any question, go to IRC. (it's very helpful) — The preceding assigned comment was added by Tark {Finish Him!Contribs} 08:56, 17 May 2015 (PDT)
Tark Hi, pls dont add {{item name|}} template on non-eng pages. Many languages have suffixes or different rules. And they still need to fix this article. It makes no sense in this template. RADISTKillicon conscientious objector.png 08:58, 17 May 2015 (PDT)
Well, i've seen this in some items, such L'Homme de la Maison (example), i will remove this. But in others? (such Le père froissé), i know a little french.. it's embarrassing for me... — The preceding assigned comment was added by Tark {Finish Him!Contribs} 09:18, 17 May 2015 (PDT)
Ohai, please don't forget to localize Wikipedia links like that: [[w:EnglishArticleTitle|EnglishCaption]] becomes [[w:fr:FrenchArticleTitle|FrenchCaption]] as seen here. If a Wikipedia article doesn't have a French translation, you have three options: Link to the English article, link to the non-existent French article or don't link at all, just keep the caption. In my opinion, you shouldn't link at all in this case, as the first two options would just waste the user's time. Furthermore, I'd suggest you using the item name less often, just use it once in the first sentence. After that, "The <Item name> was contributed to the Steam Workshop...", "The <Item name> was added to the game", etc. become "This item was contributed to the Steam Workshop...", "This item was added to the game". This makes the article's style less repetitive and you don't have to use {{item name}} that often. Have a good day - { TidB | t | c | wt } 13:52, 17 May 2015 (PDT)
