Localization

I propose replacing Table of Contents|Table of Contents with Table of Contents|categories or Table of Contents|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. -- 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 Table of Contents|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 Table of Contents|Table of Contents with Table of Contents|categories or Table of Contents|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).
