Dear Franz.wohlkoenig, Welcome to Joomla! Documentation!

Yes, welcome! This site is dedicated to documenting Joomla!, the CMS software behind many websites!

You have now been added to documentation as a translator! If you check the page Documentation Translators, you should see your username. Please, take a look at the following pages. They might prove useful to you as a new translator here:

Translators have many channels for help with translating on Joomla! Documentation. Please join one or both.

  1. We have a Mattermost channel for translators. Ask questions, get answers, and have fun. Send a contact request to Max123kl, Ceford or MartijnM. Login to Mattermost with your Joomla identity account and let us know your name, specifying that you're a JDOC translator, and we can add you directly to the channel.
  2. Post on a talk page. Either the translation administrator who sent you this welcome or another translator of your language on the Documentation Translators page.

If you have any other questions, please ask me on my talk page. Alternatively, you can go to my user page and click the "gear" icon in the top right and send a private email to me. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here.

Thanks, and regards, (Sandra97 (talk) 03:26, 31 August 2018 (CDT))

Hi Franz,

We need to consult. Please see what is going on in this page:

I am changing some of your edits. This is what I have said on RingCentral:

I have been experimenting with the problem of links to untranslated pages in tables and I now see what Franz was trying to do. So I have come up with some recommendations for Help pages:

There is no point in in using Special:MyLanguage because the proxy strips that out of links.

Link language should be included in translatable text, set to en in the original like this in a table:

|- | Menu Item: Edit User Profile | Used to create a form which allows a user to edit their profile settings.

In translation this comes out like this:

$1en | Menu Item: Edit User Profile$2

Translators should leave the en in place until they have translated the target page. Using when there is no translated target gives link text but no link in the Help page. I think it is better to have a link to the English page than no link at all. Ultimately that is in the hands of the translator.

The snag is that some translators will not know what $1 and $2 mean in the translation form and may remove them.
