Cleanup

This page is hard to read or its content needs to be updated. Please improve this page and remove this box when you are done. Reasons:

Status

The Wiki theme module now uses specific translations. Translators should copy EnglishDict and translate the human-readable text for their own languages, using a suitable page name as described on the HelpOnLanguages page (in the Built-in vs. user-specified translations section).

This is a list of subtasks to do for the completion of the task.

Notes

Some discussion on the list indicated that translations probably aren't necessary, but if they are desirable, we could use this page to collect them in the tables above.

According to http://moinmo.in/HelpOnLanguages it is possible to define user-specified dictionaries, even beyond the navibar, meaning that it wouldn't be necessary to change the built-in dictionaries in MoinMoin.i18n. Brief testing seems to indicate that provided an EnglishDict page defined translations, there would be English defaults even for people whose browsers are not set up to accept English as a preferred language - this would prevent people seeing the specific, cryptic keys to the dictionary (such as ABOUT_PAGE).
