FAQ/he‎ -> He/גנוקאש‎


  1. we use the ISO code as prefix for page names here, else we do not know: is it hebrew or yiddish? Both share the same writing, but are totally different languages.
  2. Let us start with the main page, so I can link it from the english page. BTW, already done.
  3. mark all of your pages with at least [[Category:He]]. That way you can find them by category. Better you append with '|' pagename (without prefix) to get the proper sort order.

wikipedia now have a nice feater undet beta that makes tramslating much more frendly, I was wondering if it is (or will be) posibble to use it on this site as well. also, how do i nake the hebrew pages RTL? thanks

  • I saw you resloved the RTL issue.
  • Updates of the mediawiki software and extensions must be dicussed with the server administrator User:Warlord. We had some discussion at I hope, if warlord has some time, we can set up the wiki per language. Then we can drop the pagename prefix and do more per language configuration.
BTW, you can remove resolved issues here always.

It was mostly trial and error, I just copied stuff from other Hebrew sites. At first for the Page itself then for the Table of Contents. I'm not sure it is the right way of doing it, but it worked...

That is, what I had donne too. The official starting is

BTW, What will be the best/easiest way to grab a list of all pages that I'll need to work on translating? (I haven't figure that one out yet ;-))

I think, I moved the most important parts from this discussion to Wiki Localization. That means
  1. counter check and remove the content here.
  2. add further questions about the complex there as 'ToDo's.
Was it intended to add pages to [[Category:Development]]?

Not intentionally, if I did, I was probably trying to copy it over to he page for later translation work...



No, the english page should link the english WP. I have reverted it. Perhaps you wanted to edit the hebrew version? --Fell (talk) 19:39, 4 March 2021 (UTC)


This is a over 10 years old discussion. I think I would not translate the links of GnuCash#Historical Information. I catched an obsolete link there: we switched from svn to git a long time ago.

Perhaps you would better work on something else like

Windows Installer Translation or

Also here I see no reason to translate it. For administrative task you have to talk English with the other maintainers.

--Fell (talk) 14:39, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

Right, already trashed it, same for the historical stuff...

Then you can also remove the resolved sections here.

Still can not figure out a methodological way to get all relevant pages I'll need to work on. It feels like strolling blindly in the woods; on each page, I'm clicking on links to other pages that points to more pages...

Right, I know the feeling. When the wiki started as, we had german user and english developer pages. When we moved to the userpages got translated and the context was no longer obvisious. Later we started to use Special:Categories, but older pages are still not categorized. Perhaps you can add categories while you read the page?
Here is the list of all pages: Special:AllPages. There are not so much. ;-)
Starting from GnuCash
Using GnuCash is the only real user page.
Documentation is multi -medial and -lingual.
FAQ in theory should only be a link farm to real content. Pages linked there are often following more recent standards. In fact after reordering and grouping the questions, we created theme specific pages.
Pages about communication IRC, Mailing Lists, Bugzilla are versatil for users and devs and so perhaps of higher priority. But some pages linked there like Bugzilla Administration are maintainer-only.
One indicator about priority: Did you see a link in like Contributing_to_GnuCash?
--Fell (talk) 11:24, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for that list Frank, looks like there are quite a lot of old and not so relevant stuff in there... I wouldn't mind adding categories to en pages as well, do we have a list of preferred categories we would like to categorize by? --Avma (talk) 07:45, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

You are now promoted to editors and can directly move pages and also delete your old empty pages.
You can also create category hierarchies by adding a category to a category page. See my recent changes. As MacOS is a subcategory of Operating System, Operating System is no longer required.
The fine tuning of this has still to be done.
We develope the topology on demand.

Help: is IMHO too general. For Backup aside of "Usage" something like "Users Maintenance" would be more appropriate.

Language selection box

If you translate the languages to hebrew it is hard for latin writing only readers, to select another language. Please keep the displayed text as in the box of the main page.

BTW, sorry, that the {{pagename}} function works only for latin writing.

I would not "spam" with categories.

GTK is the library, which creates the user interface of the Gnome desktop ans several programs like GnuCash similar to Qt for KDE. The tools mentioned there serve only to tweak the appearance in contrast to the collection in the tools page.

If you did not install strange GTK themes, you should be almost happy with the defaults.
Build is about compiling etc the program.
Installation is about installing Gnucash on different OSes and similar like Flatpak
Version should be avoided as every software has a version. "GnuCash Version" was a mistake for which I found no way to revert it.
