Miraheze develops and maintains a few extensions, for example CreateWiki and ManageWIki. As Miraheze has users with no or limited knowledge of English, internationalization is important for users.

Currently, we use translatewiki.net for CreateWiki and ManageWiki translations.

TranslateWiki process[edit source]

  1. Add strings on en.json
  2. Translatewiki.net bot will pull the code when they import the strings, and it will be shown to translators for translate
  3. Translators in Translatewiki.net translate the texts
  4. Translatewiki.net bot will push the $lang.json when the export bot is run
  5. They are then deployed to the Miraheze cluster (the submodule must be updated)

Process for MirahezeMagic[edit source]

MirahezeMagic is currently not using Translatewiki.net and thus you need to translate it manually using git and pull requests. We would like to migrate to TWN, eventually.
