Please could someone mark Wikidata:How_to_create_Wikidata_Tours for translationEdit

Hi all

Please could someone who is experienced mark Wikidata:How_to_create_Wikidata_Tours (including sub pages) for translation? There's quite a lot of formatting on the pages so I don't want to attempt it myself. Also the the table at the bottom of the first page probably doesn't need to be translated as that assumes all Tours are created in English first and then translated to other languages, also its likely to change very often.

Thanks very much

@John Cummings:   Done and thank you very much to @Pamputt: —Eihel (talk) 12:01, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

@Pamputt: and @Eihel: thanks so much for doing this. Could you explain what you decided about the table? I thought it would make sense to leave the table out of the translation to allow all languages to have their own tables, but whatever works best in your experience :) Thanks again. --John Cummings (talk) 16:26, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
@John Cummings: yes I thought also that letting the table as it would not be so bad because of the reasons you have given. Yet Eihel added the translate tags (I did not do it because it was a lot of work). At the end the choice is let tot the translators ; they can decide to translate it or not. Now, we have to find some translators ;-) Pamputt (talk) 16:45, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
@John Cummings: do you think you should move pages such as User:John Cummings/How to create Wikidata tours/proforma to Wikidata:How_to_create_Wikidata_Tours/proforma (or somthing similar). I think so but I prefer to get your opinion first. Pamputt (talk) 17:01, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
@Pamputt: thanks very much, I missed copying that page over, done, thanks very much for all your help with this. On another topic I noticed you're an administrator, could you take a look and create a property I proposed? It has 11 people supporting it and only 1 oppose (see note in comments, two opposes became supports) and seems like the discussion has wound down. --John Cummings (talk) 11:20, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Template translationEdit

I created a subtemplate for {{Tool2}} (used by the WD:Tool pages) and contains english parts. Please mark Template:Tool2/translate for translation. author  TomT0m / talk page 13:29, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
