This is a place to report when a change has been made to the Base (English) version of translatable files on the wiki.

The documentation team will avoid making unnecessary changes to already translated files.
We know these changes can mean more work for a lot of people, and we apologize.

When this happens, all of your old translations will remain.  But any translation units that have been changed in the base version will be marked as outdated in the translated version, until you take care of them.

To fix the changed section, please 
* take note of which section has been marked outdated.
* select "translate this page"
* Choose the section to update
* You will see the base version, the changes in the base version, and the current translated version.
* In the edit box, please make the required changes to the translated version. 
* Save the new translation.

Apologies for the change to http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Features#News_and_Announcements

The news and announcement features needed clarification. admin can send news and announcement. Users can choose to receive them or not. The previous version of this text mixed admin features with user notification features.
Clarifiying this required changing 2 lines of text in unit 59, and adding 3 asterisks in unit 150.

Unit 59 ===News and Announcements===
First list item -- was very unclear.  Probably needs to be retranslated
Second list item -- was someone unclear. Please check your translation.

Unit 150 ===User Profiles and User Options===
List items 5-8 needed to be indented under list item 4 (Email notification). This is done with an extra "*" at the beginning of the line in items 5-8

Removed a link and fixed another one in http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Profile#Ban_This_User
No translations affected as far as I can see.

I'm glad to announce another step towards the end of the "beta translation phase" of the wiki!

Now it is possible to translate the titles of the pages too! :D
To see an example, please go to Registering/it, as you can see the title of the page is now: "Registrarsi" and not "Registering/it".

So now in each page marked for translation (please find a list on the translation portal page) you will find a new translation unit that is the title of the page.

P.S.
Thanks to SleePy for the change to the configuration file of the wiki that allowed this.

Finally also that is (almost) done (for now! :P).

According to the post I did earlier this week, I changed the links in some of the translated pages.

The pages (and the units involved) are:
As you can see the change is actually quite small, just 5 pages and 1 link per page.

The new versions are already marked for translation.

Please if you have any comment or suggestion regarding this last change or anything else feel free to give your feed back in the feedback topic!

The testing is almost finished (even if a bit later than expected...).
Thanks all!

Please note the following pages have been updated:

The changes are all related to images: now a template is used. This change (like for links) allows to select a different image from the English one and have the translation at 100%.
Here you can find the report, and here few lines of explanation. Don't hesitate to ask any question! ;)

Recently Illori made some changes to the original English page about the Profile. It was just a case of grammar/spelling corrections, so it doesn't really affect the translations, although various sections have now been highlighted in pink as outdated for all translations.

In the case of the Esperanto version of the profile page, I updated all of the relevant parts, but the page continues to show up as only 98% translated. It appears to be fully translated, so I'm not sure what the final 2% is referring to.

thank you for posting about the update on the page here, i forgot about this thread.

The best method is probably for translators to sign up for notifications of any changes made to the relevant English pages. I've just done this via the Wiki settings. But, I suppose it's also handy to mention it here if loads of pink boxes suddenly appear!

By the way, Illori, do you have any idea as to why the Esperanto page now shows up as only 98% translated? I can't find anything else that needs translating on that page about the Profile.

Last time the page has been marked for translation was about a year ago, so small changes added up and now there were more pages involved.

What I had to do is: open all the involved pages and do some dummy changes (I added some white spaces that are usually invisible (I hope).
