Perhaps the most complex translatable page in our wiki now uses
Translate extension:

The change is unfortunately disruptive for the languages that had the
most complete translations (sorry, Japanese team!). There is no point
in using the migration tool, because the translations have been broken
into smaller units. Please pick the earlier version from the version
history and copy translated content from it.

To make things a bit less painful, I will add some often-repeated
translations (yes/no/supported/not supported) for es, fr, ja, ko, ru,
sl, tr, zh-tw and zh-hans. I would already have done it, but our
server infrastructure is experiencing problems that prevent working on
the wiki. So please let me do these first.

As a positive thing, the translations are now in smaller units, so
there will be less annoying wiki markup for the translators to see
while they work. I scripted the addition of <translate> elements to
table cells and manually did the rest. I did not aim for a 100%
perfectionist approach, because it would have been too much work.

And now, to my horror, I realise that the yes/no/partial templates had been used incorrectly in the page. I should have fixed the use of the templates before marking the page for translation. Unfortunately, I will be unable to do this before Monday next week. I hope it is not an inconvenience, but please refrain from touching the translations until I fix things.

I will have to
1. enable translations for the templates themselves
2. translate their texts to the languages I mentioned in the previous email 3. make it so the template instances in the table cells are always of the format {{yes}}, so all additional text is always outside the instance 4. refer to the templates using the form {{yes{{#translation:}}}}, so the desired translation will be picked from the template translation
