Frequently Answered Questions

  • How do I process dates in messages?
    • All dates are automatically formatted with a template. When you are translating, you will see a variable (like $time). Just type $time wherever you want to include the $time in the output and it will be localized automatically.
  • Do all the messages need to be translated?
    • All messages should be translated. For a perfect voting experience, all the messages need to be localized. However, priority should be given to banners and interface messages (not long announcements).
  • Where is the English version of the results?
    • The Picture of the Year committee doesn't have results until the end of both rounds. There's nothing to translate yet.
  • How do I translate a protected page?
    • Many protected pages can be translated through the extension interface. If you are having trouble, let us know on the POTY talk page. Please include your translation.
