Improving the translation support for Luxembourgish WikipediaÄnneren


Apologies as this message is not in your native language, Hëlleft wgl. fir an Är Sprooch z'iwwersetzen.

Content translation has been successful in supporting the translation process on many Wikipedia communities, and we want to help additional wikis with the potential to grow using translation as part of a new initiative.

Content translation facilitates the creation of Wikipedia articles by translating content from other languages. It has been used already to create more than half a million articles. In addition, the tool provides mechanisms to encourage the creation of good quality content, preventing the publication of lightly edited machine translations. In general, our analysis shows that the translations produced are less likely to be deleted than the articles started from scratch.

Luxembourgish Wikipedia editors have used Content translation to create more than ninety articles. We think that there is potential to use translation to create more articles, expand existing ones, and attract new editors that learn how to make productive edits. Translation can help the community to reduce the language gap with other languages and grow the number of editors in a sustainable way. In order to achieve this goal, we want to collaborate with you to make Content translation more visible in the Luxembourgish Wikipedia and support new ways to translate.

As a first step, during the next weeks we plan to enable Content translation by default on Luxembourgish Wikipedia. That will make it easy for users to discover the tool through several entry points. However, users not interested in translation will still be able to disable it from their preferences.

Please feel free to share any comment in this conversation thread.

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globallyÄnneren

Hëlleft wgl. fir an Är Sprooch z'iwwersetzen

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.

This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.

As far as I can see, Wikipedia currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.

I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Best regards,

Checking files - what to do?Änneren

Hello from Denmark!

I hope you are all safe and happy!

You still remember me? :-)

I have not been very active on for some time because I took a wikibreak and because most of the files on have been checked.

Atm. there are 2.290 files on (2.290 files when posted):

The reason the numbers does not match the total is that some files are in both categories. For example a photo of a statue. The statue is non-free but the photographer placed the photo under a free license. And a few might not have a license.

In a perfect world all the free files could be moved to Commons. Some files are allready there and could perhaps be deleted:

But still some files remail here. In short they are probably still on because they can't be moved to Commons. The reason is most likely that they lack a good source, author or there is no permission.

Some of the files can perhaps be fixed if someone manage to contact the copyright holder and get a valid permission send to the OTRS system.

It hurts to delete files that are still in use but some wikis have decided that it is better to delete than to keep files that are not okay for Commons.

My first question is if you would like to keep such files and if yes all or should there be some criteria that have to be met before the file can be kept?

Then there are the non-free files. All of those files should have a valid rationale to be kept. Only way to find out is the check all the files one by one.

But that is not my topic for today. have some rules that:

  1. Orphan non-free files have to be deleted
  2. Non-free files may only be used in articles (meaning not on user pages and discussion pages)
  3. Old versions of non-free files have to be deleted or hidden
  4. Non-free files may only be small (for example width x length should max equal 100.000 pixels)

My second question is if all of those rules apply for too?

Keeping track of all those requirements may be hard without an easy way to find files that does not meet the requirements. The best is if you have local users that can check regulary.

If there are no users around that can do that then I may be able to check from time to time. I have made some queries that could help:

  1. Files with no license: (most are probably in Special:UncategorizedFiles)
  2. Orphan non-free files: (most are probably in Special:UnusedFiles)
  3. Non-free files used outside articles:
  4. Oversized non-free files (bigger than 100,000 pixels):
  5. Non-free files with old versions:

I also help out on and and I managed to get a user from to use a bot on to reduce non-free files that are too big.

If have many files that are too big then I could perhaps get the user to help out here too.

But before that you need to decide how big files may be and perhaps clean up a bit in non-free files to make sure that there are not too many files that does not have a valid rationale.

My third question is if anyone here knows how to make lists like above and run a bot to reduce size of files and if not if you would perhaps be willing to (happy if) a user from another wiki used a bot here?

That was a long post. I know! But I think that it is important that community agree before any things are changed.

You are of course very welcome to discuss in Luxembourgish (Lëtzebuergesch). --MGA73 (Diskussioun) 14:48, 20. Mäe. 2021 (UTC)

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultationsÄnneren

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2Änneren

Hëlleft wgl. fir an Är Sprooch z'iwwersetzen

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applicationsÄnneren

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translatorsÄnneren

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.

Geographesch NimmÄnneren

Dës Diskussioun gouf aus der Diskussioun:Haalsbaach (Bäerdref) heihi geknäipt well en allgemenge Standpunkt erwënscht ass.


Firwat ginn hei Stroossennimm geännert?

E Stroossennumm gëtt per Gemengeregelement festgehalen, dann ass et, sou fannen ech, net un der Wikipedia, dat interpretéieren oder 'verbesseren' ze goen.

Um Geoportail sinn d'Nimm ze fannen, wéi s'offiziell heeschen. Hei iwregens eng Foto wou d'Schëld ze gesinn ass vun der Hammhafferstrooss. D'Biirkelterstrooss béit vun do of: File:Wayside cross and chapel Berdorf Hammhafferstrooss 2016-07.jpg.

Moien och,

Et deet mer leed wann ech elo e bësselche bësseg ginn. Mä wéi alt schonn e puermol gesäit een hei nees datt wann een eppes un engem sengem Dada ännert datt dann iwwer eppes gemeckert gëtt, wat deem Mataarbechter virdru puupegal war. Bei iwwer dausend Ännerungen an Zäit vun 2 Joer déi am Sënn vun der neier Schreifweis bei Stroossennimm gemaach goufen huet keen eppes gesot. Dat wier awer intressant gewiescht well ech huelen un, datt dat Argument vum Gemengereglement iwwerall kéint zoutreffen. Fir lo nach bei den LOD argumentéieren ze goen an ze froen ob se och d'Buergermeeschtere gefrot hunn fir déi Nimm z'änneren, ass et wuel ze spéit. Et stinn iwwregens ganz vill Nimm um Geoportal déi nach den ale Schreifweisen entspriechen. Firwat wuel? Ma warscheinlech well déi besseres ze dinn hunn wéi lo all déi Nimm z'änneren. Am grousse Ganze goufen déi nei Reegele jo vun der Wikipedia akzeptéiert. Ech kann och dermat liewen datt mer dat bei Stroossen net maachen, da ginn ech all déi Verbesserungen zrécksetzen. Awer mer sollten entweder dat eent oder dat anert hunn a keen Duercherneen. Ech soen dat hei am Numm vun all de Wikipedianer déi bei de Verbesserunge vun de geographeschen Nimm gehollef hunn an hëllefen. --Les Meloures (Diskussioun) 19:17, 18. Jun. 2021 (UTC)

Moien. Mir krute kloer erkläert datt geografesch Nimm déi mat "er" ophalen ausernnee geschriwwe ginn.Dat fënns du am Reegelwierk. --Soued031 (Diskussioun) 19:29, 18. Jun. 2021 (UTC)

PS: Den Artikel hei heescht Haalsbaach. Um Geoportal steet Halsbaach. Mir hunn en Artikel Bierkelt cf. LOD um Geoportal steet Birkelt. Um Geoportal steet Biirkelterstrooss, wat s du jo och sees awer an denger Beschrweiwung vun der Foto schreifs de selwer Bierkelterstrooss. U wat hale mer ons elo? Ech mengen eng Prinzipiendiskussioun op déi een an Zukunft kéint hiweise wier wichteg, fir datt net ëmmer nees al Zoppen opgewiermt ginn. --Les Meloures (Diskussioun) 08:05, 19. Jun. 2021 (UTC)
Et wier an deem Sënn och gutt wa keng Verbesserunge méi vu geographeschen Nimm gemaach ginn bis mer e Konsens fonnt hunn. --Les Meloures (Diskussioun) 09:45, 19. Jun. 2021 (UTC)
Gudden Owend,
Ech hu mech och e bësse mat der Verbesserunge vun der Stroossennimm (oder aner geographeschen Nimm) beschäftegt. Wann ech an engem Artikel op en Numm stoussen, ersetzen ech e fir datt e konform mat den neie Reegelen ass. Wann et mech am Fong bei Nimm wéi Areler Strooss oder Lonkecher Strooss net stéiert, muss ech zouginn, datt ech et awer bosseg fanne bei Stroosse wéi z. B. dem Berliner Wee oder dem Hammer Dällchen. Et ass awer warscheinlech einfach d'Gewunnecht, well et laang anescht (falsch) geschriwwe gouf…
Sou wéi mer chinesesch op chineesesch a schwedesch op schweedesch g'ännert hu fir konform mat den neie Reegelen ze sinn, sou solle mer et menger Meenung no och mat den Odonymme maachen.
D'Nimm vun de Stroossen an enger Gemeng gi gemenkerhand vum Schäfferot (net iwwer e Gemengereglement) festgehalen. Ech weess z. B. och aus zouverlässeger Quell, datt an der Stad Lëtzebuerg déi Odonymmen déi op lëtzebuergesch sinn, vum CPLL op hier Schreifweis iwwerpréift a verbessert goufen, datt dat awer net heescht, datt elo all Stroosseschëlter verbessert ginn. Et wäert weiderhin Arelerstrooss oder Hammerdällchen um Schëld stoe bleiwen, bis vläicht eng Kéier neier gemaach ginn.
Sou wéi mer an engem änleche Sujet och festgehalen haten déi richteg Reegel fir „Firmennimm“ unzewennen an z. B. Administration du cadastre et de la topographie ze schreiwen (mat klenge Buschtawen) amplaz vun der allgemeng gebrauchter falscher Schreifweis Administration du Cadastre et de la Topographie, sinn ech wéi gesot der Meenung, mer sollten eis fir d'geographesch Nimm un d'Reegelwierk vum LOD / CPLL halen, och wann déi net esou ass wéi op de meeschte Schëlter am Ländchen. GilPe (Diskussioun) 20:38, 19. Jun. 2021 (UTC)
Gudden Owend, um Geoportail schaffe ganz léif Leit, déi sech opreege, mat dat, wat si vun de Gemengen erakréien. Heiansdo si Schreiffeeler dran, och a Nimm vun de Leit. Heiansdo steet et an der Décisioun vum Schäfferot anescht wéi um Géoportail, wéi op enger Säit vun der Strooss, wéi am PAG, wéi op der anerer Säit. Heiansdo schéckt d'Gemeng et richteg eran, mä et gëtt vertippt a falsch agedroen. All di Leit kachen eben och nëmme mat Waasser. Bei OpenStreetMap hu mir méi wéi 600 Verbesserungen - di Meescht sinn an der Lëscht hei: -- Stereo (Diskussioun) 22:18, 19. Jun. 2021 (UTC)
