Description Martin Srebotnjak 2013-07-21 21:49:00 UTC
Wiki help uses several non-localizable strings in its rendering of online help on the wiki, i.e.  "In the Writer", "In the Calc". These make it look as if localizers did not localize help fully.


So please add these special strings to the help po files so they can be localized.

The problem is quite visible in Wikihelp, marking this bug as NEW.
Comment 2 Valter Mura 2013-07-24 19:28:32 UTC
Confirmed for Italian

Can still confirm, this bug is still present.
Since this bug is still present it just shows that totally moving Help writing/editing & translation to wiki is really not feasible if already fully making it localizable on wiki is a problem that persists so long that the bugbot asks for a bug update...
Comment 5 Adolfo Jayme 2015-11-23 23:59:11 UTC
@Dennis: I think this is also material for Infrastructure, I’ll let you decide… I think this is solvable by creating a template in the Help wiki and adding translations to it with a #switch, but us translators cannot register on that wiki.
Comment 6 Dennis Roczek 2015-11-28 22:27:51 UTC
yeah, I will take this. :-)

You can see that the untranslatedstring is in a template -->

The code is in
so we should add here the language code ({{WhenIn%s --> e.g. {{WhenIn%s/sv)

This is rather easy to fix. The only question is how to upload / update the code so that Pootle asks for text for a translation for WhenIn%s/sv
Comment 7 Dennis Roczek 2016-02-13 12:34:29 UTC
@Cloph how can we localize the WhenInWriter (etc) templates? Any idea how to get them in Pootle?

Closing this bug since we are phasing out wikihelp since 6.0.
