Template talk:Created with/bn
This template is the central junction for all translations of "Created with"-templates into Bengali language. Therefore this is the best place to simply replace the default full stop
.(dot) into the
।(dari). Note: If the parameter "more" is not used (this will be the case in 99% of all use) it contains the default dot, which will be replaced by the dari. If there is any text passed, it is either in just one language and has to be finalized with a full stop; or it contains translations: if there is any Bengali (at least just the dari) it will be used; if no Bengali exists, the English version (if it exists) is used, and it will have the dot at the end. Note: the same problem exists for many other templates, e.g. Valid SVG.

Full stop for other languageEdit
- This section has been moved from User talk:Sarang#Full stop for other language
Hi, Every template here created/modified by you use . (dot) as full stop. But some language don't use . (dot) as full stop. For example, my language (Bengali) don't use . (dot), we use dari (।). Could you please fix that for other languages? (I think this, this & this will fix that. but in this method you have to go every template & sub template, add it manually.) --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 17:56, 19 March 2018 (UTC)
- Hi, it can be done - but you must know where to set it. Several templates work together to get the display in the wanted language:
|Invocation sequence, shown with the example GeoGebra:|
|1||Created with GeoGebra||main template (one for each tool)|
|2||Created with GeoGebra/bn||numerous national versions, one for (each tool and) each laguage|
|3||Created with/bn||national layout templates, one for each language|
|4||Created with||one common layout template (edit_protected)|
You edit in (1) removing the default dot was good as a first aid, but not enough.
Your edit at (2bn) was not good, it caused two dari, or a dot and a dari, at every display.
Your edit at (2en) was not good, it caused two dots at every display! I undid it.
Your edit at (3) was good, to set there the dari as the default value.
But more action is needed: if a template (like Igen) sets the default-dot in "more" it must be replaced; I did it in (2).
I do not know anything about Bangal, whether if knows grammatical genders (like fr, de, es, pt, ...), or not, like English.
GeoGebra can produce Vector Images as well as Raster Images, therefore the two possibilities must get the correct Bangal text in (2) "what"; at the moment the English text is disabled.
Then the different topics need to get their translations in Igen/top. When this is done, some checking must occur in (3), depending on the situation: if a topic name comes from Igen/top it must be displayed, otherwise the default "what" remains.
It is not so necessary to define all the Bangal topics, in their absence default values are displayed. It is your decision what you will see. You may check the output for some topics at the bottom of the main template, when you expand the hidden text; currently only de, en, fr, es, it, pt are ready.
You must face the fact, that if a "more"-text is passed from a main template, just in English without translation and finalized with a dot, it will be shown as-it-is. You can only avoid that by adding a translation. Considering the fact that many descriptions are composed only in national languages as hebrew, polish, russian, farsi, chinese or so, as a user of Wikimedia Commons you have to accept that. IMHO the lingua franca for the commons is English and not everything is nationalized.
At the moment the template is working for your language; if you want further help, just ask me. -- sarang♥사랑 22:48, 19 March 2018 (UTC)
