This page is a template. It contains no Arch Linux-related information, but should be used as part of other articles. For more information, read Help:Template.

Please do not experiment with this template; you could ruin all pages using this template. If you want to edit this template, copy the text to Template:Sandbox, edit and test it there, and copy it back when it works.

Feel free to voice your opinion regarding this template.

A "bad translation" flag used to indicate outdated or inaccurate translations.

Usage

This template should be added at the beginning of outdated or inaccurate article translations. Ensure to cite specific concerns with the first argument and possibly also on the flagged article's discussion page.

{{Bad translation|reason}}

You can override the default discussion page with a second optional argument:

{{Bad translation|reason|Talk:Alternative Page}}

Alternatively you can point to a specific section in the default talk page with the named section parameter:

{{Bad translation|reason|section=Section name}}

Flagged pages can be found in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Bad_translation. If familiar with the language, users are encouraged to participate to resolve the issue. The {{Bad translation}} flag should be removed after the translation is updated and corrected.

Note: The talk page is linked throgh an external link: this is to avoid polluting Special:WantedPages when the talk page doesn't exist.

Example

{{Bad translation|This is just a demonstration template.}}

Tango-preferences-desktop-locale-modified.pngThe translation of this article or section does not reflect the original text.Tango-preferences-desktop-locale-modified.png

Reason: This is just a demonstration template. (Discuss in Template talk:Bad translation#)
