i18n standardization

Non-English categories should follow the naming scheme Title in English (Language). See Help:i18n for details. Template:i18n should be included on all category pages. Furthermore, all category titles should be appropriately capitalized (Like a Title).

Are there any objections? I will prepare an outline of my imagined category tree shortly.

How about using native category names with redirects to i18n named categories on category pages? --AlexanderR (talk)
Actually I was thinking to propose the liberalization of titles for all pages (not only categories), but only after implementing Help_talk:I18n#.22Dummy.22_interlanguage_links_and_deprecation_of_Template:i18n. Please, until then let's stick with the current standard: we'll discuss this thing after that, there's already lots of stuff going on in that talk page :) -- Kynikos (talk) 20:30, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
Done. Thank you for pointing to Help_talk:I18n. Good luck with i18n work! --AlexanderR (talk)

As I began sorting and standardizing the Spanish categories, I realized that many English categories have improper capitalization. These issues could probably more efficiently be dealt with simultaneously. --Emiralle 21:46, 10 September 2011 (EDT)

I can easily solve this one with my bot, although it's not urgent. -- Kynikos 16:48, 23 April 2012 (EDT)
Maybe not so easily, since I'd need a dictionary of words that should be left lower-case. -- Kynikos (talk) 20:51, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

"also in" translations

Currently only Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese have a translated "also in" string for categories with more than one parent, all the others are using the English wording. Please request new translations here. -- Kynikos 05:59, 12 March 2012 (EDT)

Please, add russian translation: Также в категории or simply Также в -- Kycok (talk) 11:48, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Done, the change will be visible after the next scheduled update of Table of Contents (Русский), this Sunday. -- Kynikos (talk) 14:05, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

I think it is not such hard to translate "also in" to ask native speakers to send it =). So I decided help you to localise bot.

I am not sure about chinees languages, but I know still much languages, right =D? Google knows more. If somebody will dislike translation, then I think he/she will request better one. — Agent0 (talk|contribs) 11:25, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! I agree that this will encourage native speakers to provide the correct translation, I've patched the configuration. — Kynikos (talk) 02:11, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks Fengchao, is it ok if there's a space between that and the category names?[1]Kynikos (talk) 02:49, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Yes, the space is OK and more clear.--Fengchao (talk) 09:53, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
If you are still doing this and still need one, you can add French aussi dans. Thanks! Modhaarn (talk) 23:21, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
Hi, the French wiki is on a separate domain, , therefore it doesn't use an automatic ToC like the languages on — Kynikos (talk) 01:30, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Place two lists side by side

What about idea of placing list of categories side by side in non english articles? In that case order of translated titles will be exactly matching with english titles. For non existing translated categories we can just make a blank cell. For example there is no russian category classroom and so numbering is going out of sync with english toc. But with table it will be like this:

Table of categories
Number English Russian
1.3 Arch Wiki (26) Arch Wiki (Russian) (17)
1.4 Classroom (14)
1.5 Events (3) Events (Russian) (1)

And also it will be visually understandable how many articles are in corresponding english category and how many in translated. — Agent0 (talk|contribs) 11:50, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
