No one’s paying attention to the discussions on this archive page anymore. Please start a new discussion at my main talk page.


Xin chào, Mxn! This is just to check that you are the same who wrote this. Just leave me a message in my user page in Wikipedia in Vietnamese and please confirm it. I'll check that place regularly and I'll try to mend everyrhing as soon as possible. What name do you want to have for a user eventually? I'm sorry for all the fuss and for being a bit late in answering... Anyway, bienvenido al Wikcionario :) --Piolinfax 19:22, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Language templates

Hi there. Could you perhaps use Vietnamese: instead of {{vi}} :? Thanks. — Vildricianus 18:14, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

See User talk:Vildricianus.
Yes there is, mainly in order to facilitate sorting languages by alphabetical order and to not needlessly complicate things for newbie contributors who don't know all these codes. — Vildricianus 07:56, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
Oh, I figured tools like this were created to eliminate the problem of sorting the language codes. This tool understands lines that begin like *{{vi}}: . I just figured that using the template would make it easier to find all the words that have Vietnamese translations here, should that ever become necessary. On some other Wiktionaries, such as the Vietnamese and Dutch editions, templates are used for every part of an entry (including the entry headings) for this reason. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, blog) 06:13, 6 April 2006 (UTC)
Enclosing headers into templates eliminates the "edit section" option (try this). All these codes and templates make it very confusing for people who are not used to it. We're trying to remain as user-friendly as possible. And I don't think it's necessary to find all entries that have Vietnamese translations, is it? — Vildricianus 07:28, 6 April 2006 (UTC)
Huh. I never noticed that edit section issue – probably because the Vietnamese templates use __NOEDITSECTION__. :^) It'd be nice if the templated headings worked better though; that way people wouldn't have to manually add categories such as "English nouns" to entries all the time.
Having a way to easily find all the Vietnamese translations would make it much easier for Vietnamese speakers to find words that need entries, since there's no way you'd be able to find them all the redlinked Vietnamese words at Special:Wantedpages. In fact, quickly skimming through the 1,000-entry list, I couldn't find any. I suppose it's still possible to Google for the term, though. A user at the Vietnamese Wiktionary converted all the headings and stuff to templates in an effort to assist the WiktionaryZ project.

The thing with headers in templates is that you'll end up editing the template instead of the page where the template is included. Note also that the part of speech categories are no more to be added for English words.
About finding Vietnamese: well, I suppose the best way to go about this is to cruise through Category:1000 English basic words and add translations where necessary. And then create the Vietnamese entries. I guess the 1000 basic words more or less correspond in each language. — Vildricianus 09:45, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
About the section edit links: I suppose it does make sense, considering how they're used in w:Template:Current events when transcluded to w:Current events. It'd be a pain to have to hunt down the particular sections of that template to edit; then again, the page is still a pain because all the edit section links get pushed to the bottom, due to the floating sidebar there. Anyhow, you might be interested in Bug 2795 and Bug 4034 at MediaZilla. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, blog) 10:39, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Vietnamese translation help

Greetings! Could you help fill out the Vietnamese entries on the pages for Appendix:Months of the Year and Appendix:Units of time? Vietnamese is one language that is embarrasingly absent on both pages. Thanks. --EncycloPetey 22:17, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

See User talk:EncycloPetey.

If you want to add the Vietnamese lunar months, you could do it the same way that we handled the Chinese lunar months (see Appendix:Months of the Chinese Year and Category:Chinese months). --EncycloPetey 00:44, 1 October 2006 (UTC)
