Photos of gunsEdit

Hi Jdx. Thanks for your help at COM:VP/C#Photos of guns. I'm curious to what you think about the images be used in en:List of submachine guns. Almost all of them are Commons images, and many of them appear to have similiar issues to the ones discussed in the aformementioned VP/C thread. I've tagged a few for missing permission, but that's really only a small number of the images being used in the Wikipedia article. Do you think you could take a peek at the licensing of some of these when you have some spare time. If they appear OK, then probably nothing more needs to be done; however, if many of them have questionable licensing, then a multiple file DR may be needed to sort them all out. Multiple uploaders are involved and some files may actually be OK. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:15, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

RequestsEdit

Hi Jdx, again I need your help for a protected template; please copy the content of Image generation/sandbox to Image generation.

Then I need your translation abilities, my Polish knowledge is zero. First you could once again edit InvalidSVG/pl: I prepared it a bit but I do not know the word for "uncheckable". When you look different displays in Polish and in another language, e.g. English, you will see what is in need:

 iThe source code of this SVG is valid.
 iThe source code of this SVG is invalid due to an error.
 iThe source code of this SVG is uncheckable.

A bit more delicate is the translation of Created with/pl. When you check the sample Created with ..., again in one language and in Polish, you can see far below the examples how it should display. In other languages, it is very different depending on whether that language owns gramatical genders - English is very simple, German has three genders, other languages (like fr, es, pt) know two genders but inflects the verb depending on the gender. As told, my pl-knowledge zero, I do not know about genders. If you need more explanation, please give me a ping! Thank you for your previous help -- sarang사랑 17:09, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Sarang:, maybe I could some help in the meantime:
  • The source code of this SVG is valid -> Kod źródłowy tego pliku SVG jest poprawny = OK
  • The source code of this SVG is invalid due to an error -> Kod źródłowy tego pliku SVG jest niepoprawny z powodu błędu = OK
  • The source code of this SVG is uncheckable ->
  • Kod źródłowy tego pliku SVG jest nieweryfikowalny
  • Nie można zweryfikować kodu źródłowego tego pliku SVG
  • Nie można zweryfikować poprawności kodu źródłowego tego pliku SVG
All 3 versions are properly - longer are only more descriptive
(PL) Wybacz Jdx że się wtrącam, może nie powinienem? Trafiłem przypadkiem; chciałem tylko pomóc Koledze w międzyczasie, zanim się pojawisz, jeśli to coś pilnego --Jasc PL (talk) 18:28, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
The next 3 elements you mentioned:
  • This W3C-invalid sign was created with Inkscape
- corrected only present translation -> Ta niezgodna z W3C grafika wektorowa została stworzona za pomocą programu Inkscape
- more accurate EN > PL translation -> Ten niezgodny z W3C znak został stworzony za pomocą Inkscape
  • This large W3C-invalid symbol was created with Inkscape
- corrected only present translation -> Ta niezgodna z W3C duża grafika wektorowa została stworzona za pomocą programu Inkscape
- more accurate EN > PL translation -> Ten niezgodny z W3C duży symbol został stworzony za pomocą Inkscape
  • This large W3C-uncheckable signature was created with Inkscape
- corrected only present translation -> Ta nieweryfikowalna z W3C duża grafika wektorowa została stworzona za pomocą programu Inkscape
- more accurate EN > PL translation -> Ta nieweryfikowalna z W3C duża sygnatura została stworzona za pomocą Inkscape
or, in the meaning of signature as someone signed any document -> Ten nieweryfikowalny z W3C duży podpis został stworzony za pomocą Inkscape
Above translations are language properly, but should be checked also with accepted Polish translations scheme here. --Jasc PL (talk) 19:41, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
@Sarang: The new version of Image generation copied. Regarding InvalidSVG, what does "uncheckable" mean in this context? Does it mean that "for some reason W3C validator was not able to validate given SVG file"? If yes, then even English "The source code of this SVG is uncheckable." in my opinion doesn't sound good, although is acceptable (but I am not a native speaker). So is Polish "Kod źródłowy tego pliku SVG jest nieweryfikowalny" – acceptable but not ideal. I will look at Created with/pl in the evening – there seems to be a problem. @Jasc PL: It's allright. Your suggestions are welcome. --jdx Re: 09:41, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! I am hoping that everything is now correct - more or less. If you would give it a check, please look (in Polish language) at Template:Created_with_...#Examples for some example displays. Only if you like you could complete (and correct) my pl-translations in Igen/top: but if you have more essential work to do, it does not matter, for the moment it seems enough "topics". -- sarang사랑 09:38, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I know that is a very rough notice; I display it when the validator refuses to check the code, it happens when the Content type is not properly declared with the <?xml ... ?> statement. Our librsvg does not need this declaration, so it is not a problem - just impossible to sort that file into "valid or "invalid" and I select a third category. While "W3C valid" or ".. invalid" is self-explaining, this is not so with these neither-nor files. Any explanation can be given as a header text in the category, but in the file declaration the text is as short as possible by intention.
Of course, everything in commons and in the world can be done better, or at least in another way; I started with all that stuff, and if somebody wants he or she can change it. Depending the translations, I have no problem with de and en, and I tried it with fr, es and pt but I am looking for help with the other languages, time by time. Now I am glad that pl is done! -- sarang사랑 12:12, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
@Sarang: There is a bug (missing brackets?) in Polish version of Image generation. Regarding Created with ..., if "signature" means something like this, then "This large W3C-uncheckable signature was created with Inkscape" should be translated as "Ten nieweryfikowalny z W3C duży podpis został stworzony za pomocą Inkscape" – "signature" is "podpis" in this context. The other problem is gender in Polish translation of "This logo was created with". In Polish "logo" has neuter (i.e. third) gender, so Polish translation should be "To logo zostało stworzone za pomocą" instead of "Ten logo został stworzony za pomocą". --jdx Re: 08:51, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
I see, it is not so easy - but thanks to your patient help we will finally get it, hopefully. Now the Template:Created_with_...#Examples looks fineto me.
I assumed the neuter forms "nieweryfikowalne", "niezgodne" and "duże": but if that is wrong please tell me better. I also changed the topic for signature from "Ta sygnatura" to "Ten podpis". Now the 3 genders look like
The source code of this SVG is valid.
This coat of arms was created with Sodipodi.
The source code of this SVG is valid.
This flag was created with Sodipodi.
The source code of this SVG is valid.
This logo was created with Sodipodi.
The source code of this SVG is invalid due to an error.
This W3C-invalid logo was created with Sodipodi.

and, with "uncheckability" plus "very large" (may be the W3C box is wrong?)

The source code of this large SVG is uncheckable.
This large W3C-uncheckable logo was created with Sodipodi.

-- sarang사랑 11:55, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

@Sarang: It looks OK, however the last example has a small issue – in English version adjective "large" is used in both templates while in Polish translation "wielki" is used in the first template and "duży" in the second. "Wielki" is better in this context. Masculine, feminine and neuter forms are accordingly: "wielki", "wielka" and "wielkie". BTW. Created with ... has a problem for "map" – see examples in Polish. --jdx Re: 13:49, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
I repaired the last failures you mentioned. There are so many possibilities (3 genders, topic or 3 different defaults, valid or invalid or uncheckable, large or not - I count 72 possible combinations! And too it has to work with the new and with the old layout; if you detect another issue just tell me! Thank you -- sarang사랑 14:35, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
@Sarang: First of all, many thanks for your interest in proper Polish translations! My writing English is - as you see, but since 20+ years I'm working with English versions of OS'es and most of software (also here I prefer English interface), so that kind of EN > PL translations are easy for me. Of course, "big" is exactly "wielki" in Polish; I don't know if "big" meant in this situation big file size or big resolution of graphics; in practice more often we (PL) use "large" / "duży" rather than "big" / "wielki" - but it's no big deal.
However we must remember that (earlier mentioned) Inkscape is a vector graphics, also SVG, editor; Scribus is typically DTP (desktop publishing) software = another kind/class of software, with ability of export work in SVG format, also. Grüße --Jasc PL (talk) 20:05, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
(PL) @Jdx Hej, jednak trochę niekomfortowo czuję się jeszcze odpowiadając w czyjejś dyskusji, na pytania które nie mnie zostały zadane. Mam nadzieję że trochę pomogłem, i zaoszczędziłem trochę Twojego czasu; mógłbym zaproponować jeszcze kilka/naście innych wariantów tłumaczeń (z polskim także radzę sobie nieźle :) - nie wiem jaka jest konwencja naszych tłumaczeń tutaj - maksymalnie krótko i zwięźle (zakładając, że ktoś kto widzi te komunikaty wie co to jest Inkscape, SVG i W3C); najkrócej i najprościej byłoby użyć do wszystkiego "grafika wektorowa", albo po prostu "grafika" (logiczne dla zorientowanych że SVG to grafika wektorowa) - zamiast wymieniania czy to jest akurat logo, symbol, znak czy cokolwiek innego. Ja tego nie wiem - Ty wiesz lepiej - to tylko moje sugestie. --Jasc PL (talk) 20:05, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
@Jasc PL: That's wikipedia that just working together, contributing with our different abilities, we can make things better. To clarify: "big" means large in size, with the effect that the validator gets problems and I switch off the "show source code"-option; this happens when the file size is beyond the limit of 2 to 4 megabyte. If for this semantics the 'duży' is better than 'wielky' I will change it back - I do not think that users read the boxes but, if somebody does, it should be understandable; as good as it is easy to make.
I am currently simplifying the translations of the "created with"-system. The template:Created with ... serves just for testing purposes, it is not a template for real use. Also for test I abuse the Created with Scribus since I have changed this seldom used template to the new structure; therefore it may appear in strange context when I need it for tests.
The system can only display topics (flags, maps, icons, logos, ...) when a translation is provided in the Template:Igen/top for that topic in that language. I created the skeleton, but I am not fit in languages, and when others want to see things in their language they ought to maintain and to expand that template. If a translation is missing in the current display language, only the standard text without topics is shown, as it was before. Pozdrowienie -- sarang사랑 05:08, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
Hey @Sarang: jetzt alles klar :). I'v checked mentioned sources; I this situation - with the file size up till 30MB - using of terms "large / wielki" is absolutely reasonable. That files are unreasonable large: at that size we lack the sense of using vector, instead of 300/600 dpi raster graphics. I just tried to open the largest of them in the Inkscape and Scribus I have by hand - result was 2 app crashes with several error messages, near all system memory was exhausted.
Only one small typo I see at the Template:Created_with_...:
  • This icon was created with Scribus by Example. -> Ta ikona została stworzona za pomocą Scribus przez Example.
  • This large map was created with Scribus. -> Ta wielka mapa została stworzona za pomocą Scribus.
The rest is OK. You are doing a great job Sarang. --Jasc PL (talk) 17:39, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
Both is now changed. Thank you, it had been able only with your patient help. If you find another failure, please just ping me! -- sarang사랑 21:32, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
My pleasure @Sarang: :). I'm glad to help you. --Jasc PL (talk) 23:15, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
