Naming convention for translated Wiki pages



  • As there are many discussions (e.g. "here":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/2499/ ) about naming of wiki pages, translated pages etc, I wanted to start a pol, about how you want the translated pages be named.

    Base is always the name of the page and Language should be changed to the language. e.g.:
    Base: HowToCreateStaticQt
    Language: German

    for option 1: WieBaueIchQtStatisch (only as possible resulting name)
    for option 2: HowToCreateStaticQt_German
    for option 3: HowToCreateStaticQtGerman

    Wiki pages are not static, so we need an automatic way to mark translations as outdated once the original page changes. Ideally the wiki would treat all translations of a page as one object I think, but that does not seem to work with the wiki we have at hand:-(



  • So, do we need to change to a different wiki instead?



  • The problem is the wiki translation haven't a link for every wiki page. Is a beautiful idea when some user change a base wiki send a message or simply alert at the top of the page 'base wiki change please cheack the modification'.



  • But how long should it stay there? And what if some translator add something to a translated page more than just translation?



  • The translation is a translation of a base page. If a user want add something i think the best is add to the base page and after to their translation page.
