Where to find documentation site elements for translation

Post by dyfrig » Wed Jan 19, 2022 4:30 pm

I have been translating the Joomla Documentation Main Page but there are various navigation and other elements that I can't find. I have marked these in the screenshot below. I would like to know where I can find these for translation and, ideally, how to find any other elements I find that need translating.

I don't do translation but I keep a list of links that may be helpful:

https://docs.joomla.org/JDOC:Page_Trans ... tart_Guide
https://docs.joomla.org/JDOC:Page_Translation_Explained
https://docs.joomla.org/JDOC:Translating_Links/en

There are others but I guess you know most already.

Thanks for that but I'm afraid that those links do not tell me how to translate the elements in question. I've looked at the French version of the page and most of those elements are not translated there either but the 2 elements (History and Purge) in the drop down actions menu are translated.

The translation is actually done in Crowdin:

https://crowdin.com/project/joomla-cms
https://crowdin.com/project/joomla-4

I don't have a clue how and the list of languages under Joomla 4 is incomplete. We really need a Joomla translation team member to step in here.

Yes - translation for Joomla itself is done in Crowdin. I am the translation co-ordinator for the Welsh translation - no problems there. The problem is with specific elements on the Joomla Documentation pages. It may be that some of those elements are not currently translatable. I've now contacted someone on the Joomla Documentation Translation Team and hope that they can point me in the right direction.

Sorry I misunderstood but I now see the point of your question. And none of the common languages have translated menus. It will need someone from the Mediawiki installation team to tell us if anything can be done.

I was attracted to your question because so much of the landing page is out of date and I was wondering what might be done about it.
