Description Jybz 2018-02-07 13:18:21 CET
Hi everybody, I don't know which mean use to suggest something, so I use bugzilla.

The multilanguage banner is in different versions.
--multi language banner
----Effect => the banner is in english it is good for all to change the language
----Effect => add the page in the category "english"
----Effect => the banner suggest other language in french, not good for non-french reader
----Effect => add the page in the french category

So, it complicate to add new languages, we can not just copy-past the banner to other language, but only a part of the banner, we have to find the part modify. But pages in other language that don't have the banner in their own language, it adds in the english category. And if I would like to add this banner in their language, I don't know if it exists.

It could be easy to add on all pages the category in their language on a single line, and easily copy-past the language banner (in only one version).

(I would like to assign it do docteam, but I don't find how)

Your remarks are pertinent.
It's time to explore what can provide the internationalization plug-in.

https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Mageia_Wiki_upgrade is an old draft, which badly needs to be improved and updated, but this link in it is still correct:

According to that MediaWiki Language Extension Bundle page: 
> The MediaWiki language extension bundle provides easy way to bring ultimate
> language support to your MediaWiki. The bundle is a collection of selected few
> MediaWiki extensions needed by any wiki which desires to be multilingual.
