Tagalog help needed[edit]

Hello Allen, I'm contacting you because we need some Tagalog translators to help with the deployment of the new VisualEditor on tl.wikipedia. There are help pages, user guides, and description pages that need translating, as well as the interface itself. The translating work is going on over on MediaWiki: Translation Central. I also need help with a personal message for the Tagalog Wikipedians. If you are able to help in any way, either reply here, or head over to TranslationCentral. Thanks for your time, PEarley (WMF) (talk) 18:13, 2 September 2013 (UTC

I don't know if I can help. I'm a native Tagalog speaker but I'm more comfortable using English version of Wikipedia. Maybe I can translate a personal message for Tagalog Wikipedians. I can do that. Thanks for inviting me. Just hit me if you need more help. Allenjambalaya (talk) 05:52, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
Allen, thanks so much for helping out. If you could, here is my message to the Tagalog wikipedians:
Greetings Tagalog Wikipedia editors from the Wikimedia Foundation. I am posting to let you know about the VisualEditor (VE) editing interface. It is a new, visual way to edit Wikipedia. We would like to deploy VE on the Tagalog Wikipedia soon, and I would like to get Tagalog editors' opinions on the new platform. To test VE, you can enable it by going to "Preferences" "Editing" --> "enable Visual Editor". We welcome your feedback, and would like to know about any problems or "bugs" experienced on Several other wikis are part of a rollout on September 24, we would like to add Tagalog to the list but would like to hear from the editing community here first. After the rollout, the button for the new editor will be displayed side-by-side with the button to edit using wikitext. Thank you for your comments, and happy editing, PEarley (WMF) (talk) 02:20, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
Okay, Tagalog message translation here (though I used some Tagalog-English for clearer emphasis):
"Mabuhay, Tagalog Wikipedia editors! Mula sa Pundasyong Wikimedia, nandito ako para ipagbigay alam ang tungkol sa VisualEditor(VE) editing interface. Ito ay isang bago at "bisuwal" na paraan na baguhin ang Wikipedia. Nais naming palawigin ang VE sa Tagalog Wikipedia sa madaling panahon, at nais kong tipunin ang opinyon ng mga pagnugot na Tagalog sa bagong plataporma. Para subukan ang VE, maaari mong subukan ito sa pamamagitan ng pagpunta sa "Mga nais ko" "May binabago" --> "Paganahin ang VisualEditor". Bukas kami sa inyong mga komento, at nais naming malaman kung sakaling mayroong mga problema o "bugs" na mararanasan sa Ang iba't-iba pang mga wiki ay bahagi ng rollout sa Setyembre 24, at kinalulugod naming idagdag ang Tagalog sa listahan ngunit nais muna naming marinig sa komunidad ng mga patnugot dito. Pagkatapos ng rollout, ang pindutan para sa mga baguhang editor ay ipapakita na katabi ng pindutan sa pagbabago (o editing button) gamit ang wikitext. Salamat sa inyong mga komento at maligayang pag-edit." Allenjambalaya (talk) 02:53, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
Allenjambalaya, thanks for the very quick response, and I appreciate the difficulty in translating some of these terms. Excellent work. I have posted to the Cafe on - let me know if there is another noticeboard where it would be important to post. PEarley (WMF) (talk) 03:09, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Hilda Koronel may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

Replaceable fair use File:Alexandra Larsson, January 2013.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Alexandra Larsson, January 2013.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. SuperMarioMan 16:26, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
