GreinirT2T sem þýðingarvél?Breyta

Það er þýðingartól hérna sem heitir ContentTranslate. Mér datt í hug að bæta við íslensku GreinirT2T þýðingarvélinni við hana. Hún á að vera með 71% nákvæmni (heimild: ) á móti 65% hjá Google Translate og 50% hjá Apertium (heimild: ). GreinirT2T er með 2,5 milljónir uppflettiorða, er undir MIT/CC-BY4.0 leyfi og er gervigreindar þýðingarvél. Til samanburðar er apertium með 22 þúsund uppflettiorð.--Snævar (spjall) 1. apríl 2022 kl. 08:35 (UTC)

Making Flores a default Machine Translation for one month in Icelandic WikipediaBreyta

Hello Friends!

The WMF Language team would like to make Flores, provided by an AI research team at Meta, the default machine translation support in your Wikipedia Content Translation tool for a test period of one month.

The above experiment will help us determine how useful the Machine Translation is for your community more reliably. By setting Flores as the default service, we expect more content to be created by using it and the data about its quality to be more representative. We plan to effect this change on 11th April 2022 unless your community has an objection not to make the FLORES the default Machine translation.

It is okay if individuals decide to select their default service, which would also be helpful to understand user preferences. However, we would encourage you to use it. After one month, we would revert to the initial default machine translation unless your community thinks otherwise.

We thank you for your support and look forward to the outcome of this test.

Flores now enabled as default Machine Translation for one month in Icelandic WikipediaBreyta

Hello Friends!

The WMF Language team has made the Flores the default machine translation support in your Wikipedia Content Translation tool for a test period of one month as planned.

We look forward to your using the Machine Translation, feedback from your community within this period, and the outcome of this test.

Thank you!

Enabling Section Translation: a new mobile translation experienceBreyta

Hello Icelandic Wikipedians!

Apologies as this message is not in Icelandic language, Please help translate to your language.

The WMF Language team is pleased to let you know that we will like to enable the Section translation tool in Icelandic Wikipedia. For this, our team will love you to read about the tool and test it so you can:

  • Give us your feedback
  • Ask us questions
  • Tell us how to improve it.

Below is background information about Section translation, why we have chosen your community, and how to test it.

Background information

Content Translation has been a successful tool for editors to create content in their language. More than one million articles have been created across all languages since the tool was released in 2015. The Wikimedia Foundation Language team has improved the translation experience further with the Section Translation. The WMF Language team enabled the early version of the tool in February in Bengali Wikipedia. Through their feedback, the tool was improved and ready for your community to test and help us with feedback to make it better.

Section Translation extends the capabilities of Content Translation to support mobile devices. On mobile, the tool will:

  • Guide you to translate one section at a time in order to expand existing articles or create new ones.
  • Make it easy to transfer knowledge across languages anytime from your mobile device.

Icelandic Wikipedia seems an ideal candidate to enjoy this new tool since data shows significant mobile editing activity.

We plan to enable the tool on Icelandic Wikipedia in the coming weeks if there are no objections from your community. After it is enabled, we’ll monitor the content created with the tool and process all the feedback. In any case, feel free to raise any concerns or questions you may already have in any of the following formats:

Try the tool

Before the enablement, you can try the current implementation of the tool in our testing instance. Once it is enabled on Icelandic Wikipedia, you’ll have access to with your mobile device. You can select an article to translate, and machine translation will be provided as a starting point for editors to improve.

Provide feedback

Please provide feedback about Section translation in any of the formats you are most comfortable with. We want to hear about your impressions on:

  • The tool
  • What you think about our plans to enable it
  • Your ideas for improving the tool.

Thanks, and we look forward to your feedback and questions.

PS: Sending your feedback or questions in English is particularly appreciated. But, you can still send them in the language of your choice.

Reverting to Google as the default Machine Translation in Icelandic WikipediaBreyta

Hello Friends!

A month ago, the WMF Language team set the Flores Machine Translation (MT) support as the default in your Wikipedia for a month's test period, which just ended.

So, we want to revert to the initial default Machine translation support for the Content translation tool in Icelandic Wikipedia unless there are objections from your community to retain the Flores as your default MT.

We will wait two weeks for your feedback in this thread on the above, and If there are no objections to reverting to the Google Translate, we will make the Google MT the default translation in your Content translation tool after the 25th of May, 2022.

Thank you so much, and we look forward to your feedback.

UOzurumba (WMF) (spjall) 12. maí 2022 kl. 01:20 (UTC) On behalf of the WMF Language team.

Flores is usually better than Google Translate for Icelandic. Is there any particular reason to revert? --Akigka (spjall) 12. maí 2022 kl. 09:48 (UTC)
Thank you, Akigka, for your feedback. There is no reason to revert if Flores Machine Translation is better. If your community wants, we can leave the Flores machine translation as default in Icelandic Wikipedia. UOzurumba (WMF) (spjall) 13. maí 2022 kl. 13:34 (UTC)

Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement GuidelinesBreyta

Hello all,

We'd like to provide an update on the work on the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct. After the conclusion of the community vote on the guidelines in March, the Community Affairs committee (CAC) of the Board asked that several areas of the guidelines be reviewed for improvements before the Board does its final review. These areas were identified based on community discussions and comments provided during the vote. The CAC also requested review of the controversial Note in 3.1 of the UCoC itself.

Once more, a big thank you to all who voted, especially to all who left constructive feedback and comments! The project team is working with the Board to establish a timeline for this work, and will communicate this next month.

Members of the two prior UCoC Drafting Committees have generously offered their time to help shape improvements to the Guidelines. You can read more about them and their work here, as well as read summaries of their weekly meetings in 2022.

Wikimedians have provided many valuable comments together with the vote and in other conversations. Given the size and diversity of the Wikimedia community, there are even more voices out there who can give ideas on how to improve the enforcement guidelines and add even more valuable ideas to the process. To help the Revisions committee identify improvements, input on several questions for the committee’s review is requested. Visit the Meta-wiki pages (Enforcement Guidelines revision discussions, Policy text revision discussions) to get your ideas to the Committee - it is very important that viewpoints are heard from different communities before the Committee begins drafting revision proposals.

On behalf of the UCoC project team
