I propose replacing {{ic|Table of Contents<nowiki>|</nowiki>Table of Contents}} with {{ic|Table of Contents<nowiki>|</nowiki>categories}} or {{ic|Table of Contents<nowiki>|</nowiki>toc}}, since "categories" and "toc" are system messages whose proper localized version will be shown in accordance to the language chosen in the user preferences for the rest of the interface. In English, "categories" shows "Categories", and "toc" shows "Contents".
 
  
I prefer "categories", are there other opinions? Unfortunately I don't think we have a message that displays "Table of Contents" in English, if somebody wants to help looking for better messages, the full list is in [[Special:AllMessages]].

: There is actually a [[MediaWiki:Toc]]. Though its current message is just '''Content'''. -- [[User:Fengchao|Fengchao]] ([[User talk:Fengchao|talk]]) 04:54, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
 
::Eheh I think you misunderstood my idea (maybe I didn't explain myself well enough):
 
::*currently the {{ic|Table of Contents<nowiki>|</nowiki>Table of Contents}} line makes the Sidebar display "Table of Contents" regardless of the chosen localization;
 
::*Both [[MediaWiki:Categories]] and [[MediaWiki:Toc]] already exist and are translated for every language;
 
::*If we replace {{ic|Table of Contents<nowiki>|</nowiki>Table of Contents}} with {{ic|Table of Contents<nowiki>|</nowiki>categories}} or {{ic|Table of Contents<nowiki>|</nowiki>toc}} the Sidebar will display a translated text for every language, instead of "Table of Contents": in English this text is either "Categories" or "Contents".
 
::My questions are: do you (whoever reads this) like the idea? If yes, which of the two messages would you prefer? (I prefer "Categories", other possible messages can be found in [[Special:AllMessages]]).
