Problems with the Apostasy translation

Hi ‎SarkaLakosilova and welcome to WikiIslam! Thanks for the translation you are working on in your userpage (I have now moved it to your sandbox). Could you please translate the following heading, "Introduction to Apostasy in Islam"?

Normally we do not accept translations of core articles, however this one is different because the introduction can stand as an article by itself (for example, see this French translation of the intro).

However, there are still a few problems with your translation that we would like you to correct:

  1. You wrote, "Pokud bychom měli konstatovat, že muslimové, kteří souhlasí s trestem smrti, jsou extremisté, pak musíme na základě výše uvedeného dojít k závěru, že většina muslimů na světě jsou extremisté (přes 90% celé světové muslimské populace)." That part in brackets was not in the original and translates as "over 90% of the entire world's Muslim population." The logic behind that statement is flawed.
  2. You wrote, "Tento výklad začal být zpochybňován až nedávno, veskrze pouze některými zastánci této myšlenky, kteří patří k 3% muslimů žijících v rozvinutých zemích západního světa." západního světa was not in the original and translates as "Western world". That statement is incorrect. The original statement says, "more-developed regions". According to PEW, that includes Japan. The Japanese are not a part of the "Western world" or of European origin.

The reason why we ask editors to provide exact translations is perfectly demonstrated here. Please correct those errors that I have mentioned and any other part of the translation you may have altered. Thank you. --Sahabah (talk) 08:26, 12 January 2014 (PST)

Another problem I noticed is the sub-heading "Odpadlictví od Islámu a právo Sharia". The original heading is just "Shari'ah" not "Apostasy from Islam and Sharia Law". This change is mainly aesthetic but the original is again preferred. --Sahabah (talk) 08:43, 12 January 2014 (PST)

Hello, thank you for suggestions. I did not have any third person to check the translation. I am wondering how you were able to spot the errors:-) I will correct them of course.

"Introduction to Apostasy in Islam" can be translated as "Úvod do problematiky odpadlictví v Islámu". The word "problematiky" (matter of or topic of) was added because without it it would sound a bit unnatural. I think the heading cannot be translated exactly word by word in this case. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by SarkaLakosilova (talkcontribs) on 12:12, 21 January 2014

HI SarkaLakosilova. Thanks for those corrections. I just used Google Translate to read it. GT is far from perfect but it gives you a general idea of what is being said. I will create a page for this article now and add it to the front page. Thanks again! --Sahabah (talk) 15:34, 21 January 2014 (PST)

List of Killings Ordered or Supported by Muhammad

Hello, I posted another translation to Sandbox. Can you please post it? Should I do it this way (first putting it to sandbox) all the time when I want to post something? Thank you. SL

Hi SarkaLakosilova. That looks excellent. No, you don't have to put it in a sandbox first. Feel free to create the pages with future translations. Just remember to put this template at the top: {{Underconstruction}} or this one {{incompletetranslations}}
I will then remove the template when I add the links etc to the article. Could you let me know what the translated heading is for this article? --Sahabah (talk) 12:51, 26 January 2014 (PST)

OK, thank you, next time I will do it this way. Translation of the heading:

List of Killings Ordered or Supported by Muhammad - Seznam vražd nařízených nebo podporovaných Mohamedem

Thanks! You can view the page here: Seznam vražd nařízených nebo podporovaných Mohamedem. --Sahabah (talk) 11:48, 27 January 2014 (PST)

Sandbox page for Odpadlictvi

Hi, I moved a certain article you were working on to the main Sandbox namespace: WikiIslam:Sandbox/Odpadlictvi (the "I" in the URL at the end can be changed later by you if needed). --Axius (talk) 15:23, 18 February 2014 (PST)

Ax, I've deleted that page now. It's already been completed and added to the list of articles a while ago. --Sahabah (talk) 15:31, 18 February 2014 (PST)
Great thanks. --Axius (talk) 15:32, 18 February 2014 (PST)

Notepad plus plus

Its definitely a good idea to use syntax highlighting here and thanks for making that user defined language. I installed notepad plus and plus and tried it out. Sample screenshot. This is good but I think it can be improved.

I'm thinking Mediawiki syntax stuff must have been done before by others so we should try to find out about that first.

What we ideally want is an extension that we can install and it highlight codes right here in the edit box. We can try to find something that exists and install it here, or find existing mediawiki syntax highlight mechanisms like the one you made. --Axius (talk) 12:23, 28 February 2014 (PST)

Hello, Notepad++ was recommended to me by a friend and he helped me also with that user defined language. Yes, he mentioned that a mechanism like that shall be incorporated to the website if possible, so I hope you will find a solution soon.

I saw a few solutions and will see if it works. In the meanwhile thanks for doing this one. --Axius (talk) 13:07, 2 March 2014 (PST)

Hi all, so there's some highlighting going on in the Edit box now. Check it out. There's a Color list that can be customized: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Remember_the_dot/Syntax_highlighter#Color_list

So right now I see it highlighting wiki links in light purple and website links in light blue and things like that. We'll have to see if its any good or how we can make it more useful. There's another option which might have more features but I have to look at it. --Axius (talk) 14:01, 2 March 2014 (PST)
